Andrew Raymond Barnes

Mellow, Clear, Youthful, Precise British English

Voice Description

As a native British speaker and trained actor, I offer a wide range of voices to suit a great variety of situations and take great care with tailoring voice, pronunciation and impact to each individual project. Clarity, diction and creativity are the key-stones of my voice work. Solid but unaffected BBC English (RIP/Oxford English) is a speciality. Regional accents and dialects, both British-English and other-English are no problem. I offer smooth, engaged readings and exciting characterisations, mellow or forceful to suit the task at hand.

Also able to do some voicing in Norwegian.
