Mark Middleton

Cool, Hip, Fresh, Urban, Confident, Friendly, Dude

Voice Description

Unique.

My voice starts from within myself and I build from there by adding some gravel, energy, vulnerability, humor, warmth, love, authority, twang or whatever suits your projects needs.

I can lose the east coast twang and be your average American guy next door, perhaps a young dad or corporate manager for training videos or commercials. I can be your goofy, chatty, friend next door.

I can be HUGE for your next animation project...

Or lay back to Narrate your story.

I can be sexy, tough, sweet, angry, fun, goofy or smooth.

I am different.

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

I have these authentic East Coast accents constantly bubbling out of my head...New York, DC, Atlanta.

I have lived, played and worked with 'urban' youth for all of my life...so...Urban, street, hip-hop. Occasionally someone will say I sound like Dave Chappelle or Tone Loc. Also, many people argue passionately that the 'My Player' voice for the NBA 2K series is Drake...it is not Drake. I promise.

I love the Brits and how they speak. I am constantly working to perfect the various regional dialects. Challenge me!

Most importantly, for all accents/dialects, I can lay it on thick or subtle. Think dimmer switch, not on-off.
