Matthew Boland

Honest, deep, authoritative, friendly, character

Voice Description

Having spent many years behind the mic as well as casting others for numerous voice jobs, I have a good sense of what clients and producers are looking for. My voice has the ability to reach through those speakers and connect directly with your listener.
I apply this philosophy to each and every job I do.

For commercials: my voice is on the one hand knowledgable, trustworthy, cool, and fun with a hint of authority. I can also convey a serious, meaningful 'call to action' voice that exhibits trust and forms an immediate bond with the listener.

For presentations: Clear and concise but very human. I look at your brand and put full effort into reflecting and representing your 'brand message'.

For narrations: Whether it's a sense of mystery or sass, my voice will add depth and character to your TV or film project.

For cartoons: Whether zany, wry, dark, or heartfelt, my characters and impersonations will wow you.

I only believe in projects that I'm right for. I will never try to fit a square peg in a round hole.

My Voice Experience

I had the good fortune to work as a voice over artist for five years while living in South Korea before moving back to my hometown of Toronto to continue my career. The experience of working 7 hours a day on everything from being six different characters in Homer's 'The Odyssey' to Japanimation cartoons about intergalactic baseball teams, to every single household or mobile device put out by Samsung or LG prepared me to do this for a living.

My voice has been on national and international TV campaigns worldwide, in video games as characters and announcers, and on countless radio spots throughout North America.

I've been in every type of recording session imaginable from ensemble group animations, to looking through the studio glass at 20 Samsung executives, to small Indie projects ...no job is too big or small.

Since moving back to Toronto, I've voiced numerous ads for Corus radio and TV assets as well as continuing numerous web projects.

My Training

My background is in music. I studied jazz drumming at Concordia University in Montreal for three years but ended up with a degree in Urban Planning. In 2011, I received a Post Graduate diploma in Radio Broadcasting from Humber College.

I've played drums on numerous recordings including 'Sotto Gamba', 'The Gentlemen's Club', and more recently 'Spokeshave'.

After working at CBC Music in Toronto for six months as an Associate Producer, I can now be heard doing traffic reports for the Canadian Traffic Network on Newstalk 1010 in Toronto and News 1310 in Ottawa.
