Rupert Reid

Young, Confident, Sincere, Fun, Warm, British

Voice Description

I voice a wide variety of content (including advertisements, corporate videos, podcasts, promos, TV narrations etc.) in a young, accessible and friendly voice with mature delivery.

I am comfortable delivering a broad range of ages and styles, from enthusiastic teenager through to sophisticated middle-aged male. My natural UK accent is neutral in class and region, but I am also confident voicing various regional accents and British tones, such as 'East London', 'posh', 'sophisticated' and so on.

My spoken voice is in the baritone range, and I'm also a professional singer. My work takes me all around Europe, but I am not normally away for more than two days at at time, so can offer very fast turnaround times.
