Noel Johansen

Personable, Wry, Friendly, Good w/ accents

Voice Description

Noel's voice has been described as friendly, natural, conversational and wry, but he can certainly provide energy, enthusiasm and authoritative depth. Has been often likened to John Krasinski and John Corbett

On commercial reads, Noel has a hip adult feel (early to late 30's) friendly, real, energetic or casual with a hint of wry. On public service announcements, a genuine caring sense of the neighbor next door.

On TV narration, Noel's read range from the dramatic to the whimsical - from Discovery documentary to Food Network lifestyle.

He can speak French and is completely bilingual.

Noel has standard American speech, which he can alter to various regions Southern (Virginia), New York or mid-west.

Noel can do a full on British accent as a native Brit (is half English, lived & trained there) or make it mid-Atlantic as in his Nokia TV spot on the demo.

Noel's promo read is ESPN cool matter of fact, but can go lighter Hollywood read.
