Nate Johnson

Authoritative,Warm,Animated,Natural,Conversational

Voice Description

As the voice of the Amazon Kindle Fire family of tablets online, Nate is often regarded as having a friendly, conversational yet authoritative voice. He carries that same natural and knowledgeable tone into his spokesperson work for corporate product narrations. But there also comes those scripts that require him to flip it on its head with impressions ranging from Matthew McConaughey to Al Gore, dark and foreboding or light and animated movie trailer voices, or an authentic New Zealand accent among others. As an actor and storyteller, Nate will give you a goofy cartoon character, a gritty video game hero, an impassioned testimonial or a unique documentary or audiobook narration. With his projecting baritone voice, Nate has performed as the Voice of God for awards shows around the US. And he can also soften it for a thought-provoking PSA.

My Training

I have studied vocal technique for the past 15 years, first as a choral singer then through my opera and jazz training in college. I traveled the US and the world picking up dialects and accents from California to New Zealand to SE Asia to Argentina. I studied character voices in Los Angeles with Lori Tritel (http://loritritel.com) and Eliza Jane-Schneider (http://www.elizajane.com/) and currently train in commercial voice overs with Doriane Elliott (http://dorianeelliott.com/) and John McKinney here in New York.

I am an acting student at T. Schreiber Studios (http://tschreiber.org/) and an improv performer at The PIT (http://thepit-nyc.com/).

Additional Skills

Nate delivers a fresh voice that gives you the feeling that you're sharing a beer and a laugh with an old friend. He hails from Nebraska, received his degree in Los Angeles, lived and worked in New Zealand, Australia and Southeast Asia, moved to Hoboken, New Jersey and is now based in Brooklyn, New York. He has also been a lifelong singer and was trained in opera in college. He is a stand up comedian, improv actor and theater actor.

This gives Nate a broad range of vocal knowledge from playing the cheeky jokester, to the hip musician, to the kind, but authoritative young father. He can play your hard-edged Brooklynite or your informative Australian outback guide. Whether he's a stoned surfer or a rich banker, a house DJ from Düsseldorf or a weird cartoon creation of his own, Nate will give you a crisp and unique sound for your project.
