Voice Description

A warm, authoritative RP voice, ideal for upmarket advertising, intelligent documentary and corporates that demand friendly, engaging gravitas. A good demographic range from a sophisticated 40s to trustworthy 50s. Excellent ear for accents from North American (Stephen Spielberg cast him as an American in Saving Private Ryan) to North Yorkshire. A native of Derbyshire he can mimic all the subtle Midland accents. His impression of a posh 1950s announcer has been described as 'uncanny'.
