My Voice Experience

Vividus Design for Hamilton-Tiger Cats Ontario:
“"Steve assisted us with a last minute voice over. He was very professional, delivering a variety of voice options in the short time available. His clear, yet unmistakable British accent, added the required flavour to our video. Thank you Steve."
NCP Photography:
“As a photographer, I’m often in a position where I am with a client and unable to answer the phone, so I rely on people leaving me a message. I realized that no matter how I tried, I just couldn't get a clear, professional sounding answerphone message. I got in contact with Steve and couldn't be happier. Dealing with him was a pleasure, and in less than 48 hours I had a fantastic answerphone message ready to use. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Massive thank you Steve - Highly Recommended”

Gary Terzza – Channel 4, E4 and Channel Five continuity announcer and voiceover artist for over two decades:

"When it comes to voice over delivery Steve's middle name is relaxed; his voice is calming and eminently listenable. He is consistent and professional and to top it all, a great guy too. Book this man."

Laurie Jeffery. FRPS. DP and director

I have had the honour of working with Steve on three films to date. On each occasion his abilities as both a writer and voice artist have been first class. The attention he puts into any project is always 110% but what's most impressive is his positive, professional "can do" approach. Together we have never missed a deadline and our clients have always been more than happy with the production.
I am currently waiting for the next script to hit my inbox whereupon all I have to do is forward it to Steve with a few notes about style and wait for the finished result. This allows me to get on with my job safe in the knowledge that V/O is in the very best of hands.
I have no hesitation at all about thoroughly recommending Steve for whatever project you are working on.


Rowan Banks. Director- Apricot Films

"I recently hired Steve to voice-over a technical training film for a large motor company. The script was rather technical and needed to be pitched in the correct tone and Steve was very understanding and helpful throughout the process.

His voice worked perfectly for the production and the service he gave was simply fantastic. I can't wait to work with him again on another project and will actively recommend him whenever I get the chance!"

Charles Kephart – F2 Studios

"Steve isn’t just a terrific voice-over artist, he is a collaborative partner who genuinely cares about your project. Equally important, he’s an excellent communicator, always prompt and professional when replying to emails. If you’re looking for a tremendous VO talent who will always give you 110%, Steve is your guy!"

Gavin Bentley – Bentley Media Group

"Steve was very easy to work with. He has a great voice and made it easy to make the project great."

- Edward Loades, Managing Director, Black Cliff Media

"We required a balanced, well spoken voice for an online video to launch a prestigious classical music festival. Steve's voice was perfect. The quality of the voice itself and recording elevated the production value of the video. "
