My Voice Experience

I've been doing voice over work in Irish radio since 1980, generally for commercials and promos. I've done some similar work for American and British radio. I've recorded corporate training videos and some narration for documentaries, straight voice overs for broadcast imaging and jingles.

"Having Paul Dower's voice on one of my client's commercials clinched the contract for me. They "upped" their package once they heard the finished production". - Bill Lynch, WION - 1430AM, Ionia MI, USA.


''Paul's voice on our promotional videos adds something special, it's the natural Irishness that he has that makes it, he's wonderful to work with.'' - Green Gables, USA.


''Paul was the perfect voice for our talking Irish farm dog, Paddy Mac! He was lovely to work with, was quick with direction and brought the perfect amount of enthusiasm, energy and warmth to Mac’s character. We’re based in the U.S., so he was kindly very flexible and understanding with coordinating our VO session from a few times zones away and even helped us out with finessing some of the language in our script to sound more naturally Irish. I would highly recommend him!'' - Mariel, A&E Network, USA.
