Colin Ryan

Rich Warm Baritone, Dialects, Witty, Authoritative

Voice Description

For narration and presentations, my baseline tone is a rich warm baritone. In commercials, I have a wry, witty, guy-at-the end-of-the-bar tone. In a more character vein, I can reach deep basso profundo notes with a menacing or stentorian tone, played straight or ironic.
