Dayton Smith

Classical music hosting, literary, modulated POSH

Voice Description

Classical Music announcing, literary, modulated POSH: enriched by musical training, church/chorus singing for decades (bass-baritone), described by my wife's friends as the ideal radio 'bedroom voice'; and by a Bishop as 'the voice of God'. Good pronunciation in several languages (classical music broadcast experience), command of intonation/pacing for emphasis and context. Also, some voice imitations, even a credible automation monotone, good Texas drawl when required. Conversational, instructional, dramatic as appropriate.
