Tenor, Character, Accent, New Zealand, Kiwi

Voice Description

I can create multiple characters and multi track them with music and effects. I have many different types of abilities such as accents, and styles. From the guy next door, to the commentator at the races.
I can create 'rough' voices, (Pirates are my favourite.)'teenage' voices, 'child' and 'cartoons.'
I tend to have a higher voice but can resonate at lower voices comfortably. I consider my voice to be unique.

My Voice Experience

I have been 'liked' for my voice impersonation of Jeremy Irons - Lion King (Scar,)and academy award winner.
I have performed in many stage productions. Playing characters from dumb gangster side-kicks, to one of Huckleberry Finns 'boys.'
I'll sing in tenor if you want. I have a pretty good range in fact.
Oh did I mention I was 'Boris the boar" (Not Boris the Boring, no, Boris the male piggie. He he.) in one of these productions. (Ohhh Doris the sow was such a hottie.)

I'm loving the Old Time Radio shows from the 40's and beyond and learning new skills along the way.
I have been recording audio-books for Librivox.org for a year now (Librivox is the audio-book version of gutenberg.org - working towards publishing all Public domain literature into audio books. It's fun!)
