James Alvis

Strong, Sensuous, Warm, Commanding and Charismatic

Voice Description

I have a powerful voice which could be exactly what you are looking for, for your product, project, production or campaign.

I would describe my voice as naturally rich, warm and deep, commanding and charismatic

My voice has also been described as both sensuous and comforting. I am "well spoken" and professional in both approach and character

I have a good sense of humour and a cheeky intonation when necessary or appropriate.

I am a big guy, with a big personality. This comes through in my voice, tone and delivery - I have presence and gravitas and people warm to me.

I have great tone, inflection and character in my voice and I believe that I can enrich an event or prodution or project through the persoanlity which comes through in my voice.

My Voice Experience

I have worked with BBC in numerous areas of the UK.

Most of my work has been in the sports commentary genre, but I have been used in private productions and events to commentate, speak, announce and compare.

My Training

Educated at Clifton College in Bristol (I have 8 O. Levels and 3 A.Levels).

I was an avid am-dram participant throughout my school career.

I attended UWIC in Cardiff, where I studied a Sports Science degree (BA Hons) and a PGCE.

I have worked with local radio stations commentating on sport (Rugby & Cricket) and I was invited to commentate on the 2003 Rugby World Cup Final, for Solent Radio in Southampton.

I now present programmes for a radio station in the UK and work for the BBC as a sports correspondent.

Additional Skills

As a teacher I have a charismatic and interesting voice, and am able to vary my delivery, employing a range from confident and authoritative, through to reassuring and supportive, amusing, genuine encouraging and enthusiastic.

I have travelled widely and enjoy mimicking accents and characters which I have heard, met and interacted with.

I am friendly, amusing when necessary and easy to get on with within all situations. I am a good team-player and intuitive individual.

I believe that I have a high level of emotional intelligence and an ability to read a situation well and respond in a manner which enriches the surrounding social atmosphere - which helps with the delivery required for many different projects.
