Matthew Hadgraft

Dry, Character Specialist, educated, quirky, fun

Voice Description

My voice is mid range, that can be nasal, deep and round, warm, sincere and genuine. I do a huge variety of characters and can invent character voices for inanimate objects or cartoons.
I can be vibey and contemporary for commercials, or do an assertive hard sell.
For presentations, my voice is clear, crisp, professional and warm.
For audio books, I can voice any character and create suspense and intrigue.
For narrations my voice can be fun and exciting, serious and deep, warm and inviting or smooth and calm.
I can be Aussie and "okka" or articulate and educated.
And, I can do it right now!
Love, Matt!

My Voice Experience

I worked for the last six years at the Gold Coast for a leading radio network in the Creative department, where we would frequently be called in by producers to voice ads that the regular voices didn't have a chance to do!
This was anything from straight reads, retail, hard sells and emotional pleas, to political send-ups, Robbie Williams, strange old women, blokes at the pub, and a toaster.
These ads can be heard throughout regional Australia, especially the Gold Coast, Coffs Harbour, Mackay and Toowoomba.
I was regularly called in to sing, and often to play for a jingles of my own invention.

My Training

I am a trained musician in voice and piano! Also I have an Education degree.
I have performed as leads in many musicals on the Gold Coast and Brisbane, and I used to play Benny in an ABBA tribute show which toured Australia!
I am a very experienced copywriter as well as the work I do for voice overs and music.

My Studio Equipment

I use an MT90 mic through an M-AUDIO Mobile Pre-USB interface with a Mac running Logic. The room is passed with mattresses and convoluted foam.
I usually run the finished product through the de-esser and tweak the EQ to add richness, and I'll happily de-breath anything that needs de-breath-ing.
I also have access to the Image OnLine studios on Johnson St, Fitzroy, Melbourne.

Additional Skills

I come from a family line of academics and teachers, so, as such, I form words well and have a warm, personable, sincere, articulate voice. Everyone in my family boasts a fine education! When I worked as a teacher myself (a career I left to take up radio) the students' favourite part of the day was always story time, because my best skill was bringing the characters in the book to life!
