EVP, or Electronic Voice Phenomena, are one of the most fascinating results of paranormal
investigations. These mysterious sounds and voices are not heard by the human ear,
yet show up on audio recordings made at the time.
Below you will find some favorite EVP that I have personally recorded. Most of these
can be heard through the speakers in your computer, but all EVP are best listened
to with headphones or external speakers for added clarity.
- This EVP was recorded during our Preliminary visit to the home, while siting around
the dining room table with the clients. You can hear us all talking, mainly another
investigator, Mike. If you listen closely you can hear something that sounds like
old Rag Time music drifting in under our conversation. No music was playing at the
- This second EVP was recorded six minutes later. This time waltz music drifts in
and out. During the 45 minute conversation at the table, these were the only two
times music could be heard.
- This final piece from Woodbury was recorded during our investigation there. As
is typical with may EVP, it may not be audible without speakers or headphones. In
this one I was alone in a closet know for it’s paranormal occurrences. I ask “Could
you touch me?”. After a brief pause there is a very quiet “Please.”
- In this one I’m in the basement of the home investigating with my friend, Jennifer.
Jennifer notes that she feels “staticy”, sometimes a sign of a presence. The “I like
you” was not her nor me, and there was no one else (among the living) with us at
the time. We believe the quieter word that follows - also neither of us - is “flirty”.
- This next one is from a subsequent visit to the location. I’m heading down to the
basement with the client and talking about if “she” (the ghost) will talk to us again.
A quick-paced child’s voice joins in, enthusiastically saying “Let’s go down!” -
little did we know she was already with us!
From a private home in Northern New Jersey...
- This EVP is from my very first investigation and remains one of my favorites. My
fellow investigator and I are on the third floor of the old Victorian home. His equipment
makes a noise so he tags it saying “That’s just me”. In the recording a young girl,
not present at the time but believed to be haunting the home, chimes in in a very
sing-song voice saying “That’s just you-oo.”
- Later in the investigation this unknown voice from the male spirit in residence
quietly chimes in on our conversation with “No worries.”
- In this EVP from another private residence you can hear me quietly talking during
the investigation as a spirit voice tells the others there “Pull back”, just as we
heard in the Groveville case. Interestingly, a sensitive with us that night believed
the spirits were trying to go undetected, fearing that we might be there to get rid
The sound quality isn’t the best, having been recorded in an echoy cement cell, but
about seven seconds after I see the shadow you’ll hear a mournful young man’s voice
- I don’t usually attempt to cross over spirits during an investigation, but sometimes
I’ll try to lay the foundation and broach the subject with them. Here I had just
started talking to them about thinking about crossing over. You hear me follow up
with “You have family waiting for you on the other side.” Then listen closely for
the soft response - I believe it says “It’s not happening yet.” We can’t force spirits
to cross over, only help them if they’re ready to go. This one apparently was not.
- Sometimes during an investigation you’ll get the distinct feeling that the spirits
don’t want to be know. In this EVP you’ll hear me talking quietly as we’re about
to begin a session. Then you’ll hear another voice, slow and drawn out, apparently
issuing instructions to the others: “Pull back.”
These first EVP are from the case I talk about in Chapter 9, “A Beckoning Home”.
The setting is a beautiful mid-1800’s house in Woodbury, New Jersey, which is pictured
on the book’s cover.
These next two EVP are from the case I talk about in Chapter 10, “Friend? If Not...
Goodbye!” This friendly child is but one of the spirits in the home...
These EVP are from a case involving a home in Groveville, New Jersey, with a nasty
male entity controlling the other much nicer ones. The case is detailed in Chapter
11, “Mr. Grumpy Pants”, a name the client (pictured on the left) affectionately called
the male spirit.
This final EVP touched my heart. It was recorded in the Burlington County Prison
Museum in Mount Holly, New Jersey. When this was recorded I was on the third floor
alone in a old cell, with no one else in the entire wing. I note that I see a shadow,
and wonder if it could be from a light shining in. (Being high up and not in the
path of headlights, with the small window near the ceiling of the cell, that was
later determined to be impossible.)
