'Speak the speech I pray you as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue; but if you mouth it as many of your players do, I had as lief the town-crier spoke my lines' William Shakespeare
A flexible and versatile voice that is expressive and creative, friendly yet authoritative and always crystal clear..
My narrative voice has considerable range; I can be calm and confident, authoritative and credible or empathetic and warm depending on your needs - always clear and easy to understand even with complicated texts. My natural speaking voice is neutral British English - a modern RP that is not too upper class - a BBC kind of voice - but I have the range and flexibility that offers many different vocal options. I have a wide playing age, from young adult to totally over the hill and create believable and imaginative character voices and have a range of credible and accurate British and European accents.
I recorded my first professional VO at the age of fourteen and am delighted to say that fifty years later, my pipes are still in good working order - and still available for hire.
A strong and mature voice that is authoritative and believable, expressive and flexible, gentle and warm or powerful and dominant.
I combine classic narration and story telling with dramatic and imaginative characterisation, bringing a dynamic quality to my voice work. In everyday speech, I have a neutral RP accent but I am able to credibly perform a very wide range of British regional accents - as well as many European and American accents. I have an exceptional ear for accents and regional dialect and have professionally used many regional accents over the years.
I set up my first personal recording studio in my garden shed some ten years ago. Since then I have moved house several times so my personal studio has moved with me - thankfully moving from the garden shed and into the house.
