Jacob Ekström

The Danish voice your audience will like

Voice Description

I’d like to describe my voice as “natural”. I’m the voice the audience will be comfortable with, because I could be the guy next door. Someone they know, someone they like.

I specialize in narration for corporate presentations and E-learning. I don't just read your script like it was todays headlines, I care about every word, every paragraph like I was a true representant of your organization, or a colleague who wants to share my knowledge with my co-workers..

I also specialize in commercial reads with a natural flow and feel. Or commercials with a character.

Case examples:

When "Bilka", one of Denmark's largest chains of department stores, needed a voice impersonating a happy pig on a flying carpet, they chose me.

When Logitech needed a Danish voice for their online "unboxing" product presentations, they chose me.

When Microsoft needed a Danish voice for their online educational "SimpleShows", they chose me.

When Norwegian Airlines changed their "Safety onboard briefing" to a multi-language video presentation, they chose me for the Danish version.

My Home Base

Copenhagen, Denmark

Accents, Impersonations, Characters and Dialects

Being born and raised in Copenhagen, I have a "normal" Danish dialect. I can do almost any Danish dialect there is (which is surprisingly many considering the small country!)

I speak English with either a slight or strong Danish accent. I also do a decent American-English accent (I have done radio imaging and even a short VO for a "Little Ceaser's Italian Cheese Bread" commercial spot once!)

My Voice Experience

I’ve been in the voice-over business for more than 20 years, and in radio for more than 30 years.
I’ve done all kinds of projects; commercials, promos, trailers, imaging, narration, dubbing, e-learning, corporate presentations, infomercials, IVR... even projects almost impossible to categorize.

Some of my clients are Coca-Cola, Dreamworks Animation, Microsoft, Norwegian Airlines, Synology, BASF, Expedia Travel, TV-Shop, SAI Global, Novartis, MedXplore, iAudioGuide, John Deere, Volvo, Danish Road Safety Council, ABUS, Codan Insurance, Tyco International, Bosch, Logitech, Bilka… and many more.
