BBC News, Authoritative, Funky, Commercial, Fun
Mid 20's to late 30's male, authoritative BBC News Received Pronunciation style for presentations and corporate work, smooth and classy British for TV/Film voiceovers, as heard on The BBC World Service.
All the way to funky, young, hype 'English street' and commercial radio style DJ, as heard on Virgin VMR Megastores Radio in the UK and Ireland.
Excellent mimicry and imitations. Character, cartoon voices and stereotypes, incl. trashy, yoof, upper class British, high impact "sell" TV ad style, enthusiastic and fun for kids TV ads, through to North American accent and much much more...audition me on the phone if you need multi-character voices to see if I can provide what you're looking for.
