Ray Campbell

Warm, reassuring, character specialist, offbeat

Voice Description

I've recorded many projects in my own voice. For example I narrated an independent film called "Jamaica Plain" in 1989. Unfortunately I cannot recall the director's name save to say that he was a lecturer at Northumbria University.

I would describe my voice as warm and reassuring. I can also speak in a deeper, darker or sexier voice if required.
