Paul Markey

Conversational, dramatic, quirky, funny, accents

Voice Description

Conversational style narration reads, hard-edged, quiet, baritone range with an edge into the tenor range and a tap into the bass area, quirky character voices with over-the-top accents (Southern drawl, New England elitist, Aussie, etc.) fast, slow, in-between. I'm also an editor, so I have a good sense of what is needed once I know the product. For my complete bio look up my LinkedIn profile!
