Voice Description

My voice is versatile enough to adapt to most any kind of script/read.

My delivery is distinctive and I don't sound like your "average" voice-over - or so I'm told!

Producers say I provide the exact tone, pace and feel for a project first time, and that my neutral "accent" is particularly useful if the script requires British, but not too British, or indeed anything which rides the waves between Brit, American, Australian and even English-African - hence the reason a substantial proportion of my "regular" work spans those four countries.

I don't have just the one style.

If a hard, fast, factual read is required for a narration, A/V, on-hold/IVR or online system, documentary or corporate presentation, I can do that.

If a narrative needs to be cool and calm, or rich and deep, or any other way, ditto.

Slow and sexy? Sure, if required.

Plaintive/Emotive? Of course.

Natural and not "voice-overy". Absolutely.

Technical? Not a problem.

Deep, rich and movie-trailer-esque? For sure.

In over 25 years as a professional voice-over, I've pretty much voiced them all...

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

If I'm given a script which requires something quite different from my "normal/usual" delivery, I often create character voices as directed - or suggest a voice or voices, depending on the script content.

Monty Python-esque voices are a speciality!

I voice an authentic UK West-Country, comic-French and German accents, various American deliveries (movie-trailer, cowboy etc.), old men etc.

My Voice Experience

BBC Radio 4 UK - FOX Movies Middle East - Classic FM UK - LBC 97.3FM London - African Television Network 'NTV' - Emirates Airline - Coca-Cola - MacDonalds - Sony - Samsung - Microsoft - Toni & Guy - Virgin Radio Australasia - Jaguar - BMW - Audi - Mercedes - Porsche - Toyota - Singapore Television - BHP Billiton - RAC - BT - Telstra - Water Corporation - Marriott Hotels - Mitsubishi - British Gas - Lloyds Bank - Cadbury - BOSE - Specsavers...

I've voiced for these companies and, literally, hundreds of others - big and small - over the 25+ years I've been voice-overing for a living - and I still voice for many of the abovementioned organisations today.

From "Fred's Fish & Chip Shop" type radio ads, to in-depth highly technical A/V narrations (some with many unusual or foreign words, names and places) - from simple on-hold messaging to in-depth on-going worldwide developmental projects for the likes of IBM - there's not much I haven't voiced.

My Training

No academic qualifications whatsoever - dropped out of high school age 16!

Neither have I ever had any vocal training.

I have, however, sung in every kind of pop/rock/punk/covers/indie-type band I can think of since the late 70's, and up until I left Australia in late 2013, I sang lead vocals with a 20 piece Jazz/Swing Big Band.

I've been a radio DJ/Presenter/Broadcaster/Newsreader/Journalist/Radio Station Manager as well as Music Director for the Perth branch of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

During my radio days - 1979 to 1996 - I've probably performed just about every job from making coffee to Production, Programming and Management!

My Studio Equipment

I'm running a successful, professional Porta-Studio™ utilising a state-of-the-art solid-state drive MacBookPro, with Twisted Wave and Sony Sound Forge software, hooked into an Apogee ONE interface and running an Aston Spirit mic.

I have ipDTL, Source-Connect and SKYPE listening-in facilities and can voice from anywhere, anytime for anyone.

All of my voice-over work I record, edit and send myself.

I always record flat EQ with zero processing, limiting or compression.

This I can supply if required.

My recording facilities offer MP3, WAV, AIFF and most other formats and, for larger files, I use HighTail, DropBox, WeTransfer - or any other FTP specified.

And I have access to pro-studio facilities, including the use of ISDN, by prior arrangement.

Additional Skills

I offer proofing, grammatical and punctuation correction facilities, if required, at a small additional fee to be negotiated, depending on the job.

From time to time, I write copy/scripts/narratives and offer advice on existing scripts.

In fact, I've written everything from scripts (for a living), to poetry and lyrics for songs (as a past-time), and have sung in any number of cover, pop, rock, punk and indie bands since I joined my first band far too long ago to remember!
