David Vickery

BBC Network. Articulate. Standard English. British.

Voice Description

Articulate. Classic. Contemporary. Network BBCTV freelance announcer.

I am a highly experienced British male voice-over, having worked consistently for over 30 years in broadcast, corporate and multi-media. I am "old school" only insofar that I work to the highest professional standards - otherwise I am an embracer of change!

I currently freelance for one of the "main" UK network channels BBC2 TV, working in a "live" broadcast environment.

In 2013, I was the main male promo voice on national Classic Fm radio for whom I continue to work (2015) voicing on-air enterprise commercials.

My style embraces standard English nuanced to appeal to modern audiences. Vocally agile, I deliver reads from warm, light and frothy through to the sensitive and serious.

My approach to voice production is one that is both confident and professional. I like to think my business dealings are transparent and honest and having been a producer myself, I respect and understand what is necessary from your perspective. Working at distance, mutual trust is imperative.

Where possible, I am happy to provide bespoke demos and welcome enquiries attached to a range of budgets and requirements.

My Home Base

London, United Kingdom

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

My voice is an educated, articulate English British voice - RP, received pronunciation, standard English, Queen's English all describe it well. That said, it is natural and unforced - not old fashioned with a contemporary classlessness. Feel free to make sense of the description, by listening to it!
