Stephen Linturn

Soft, eloquent, witty, humorous, versatile speeds

Voice Description

I have the ability to read in a soft, eloquent voice for serious or poetic work. I am able to read fast and clear enough to produce humorous ad-lib work. My southern British accent is appealing and suitable for phone messages and IVR functions. I can add inflections to my tone to highlight specific topics and have a child-like musical tone when required. Can carry a tune for a spot. Can spout nonsense verse with rhythmn quickly - so great for limericks and comical advertisements.

My Voice Experience

Just starting out in the voice-over business - to date my voice has only been used at a local hospital to keep patients and visitors calm during a non-routine fire alarm! That said I am also an amateur song-writer and poet and enjoy performing my own works which are fast-paced, witty and great fun! I believe if you are looking for a child-like quality and sound for your project then I can deliver this in a unique way. Give me a chance and hear for yourself!

My Training

Educated in Suffolk, England I went to a Naval Military Boarding School where I learnt my P's and Q's. Shy at first I enjoyed taking part in school theatrical performances taking part in several comedy plays and finding my comedic voice. After leaving school I worked in a Sales environment for many years where I mastered my 'telephone voice'. I then moved on to the Service Industry working as a Team Leader for an award winning Contact Center - where I further developed and taught good telephone techniques - specifically relating to tone, inflection, active listening etc. Several years later I continued my love of creative writing and song-writing before meeting my American-born writer wife. I then emigrated to the USA and we married and I am now hoping to use my distinct English accent to draw attention to many great products and services worldwide.
