Brighton, East Sussex, GB
NEW to Voices.com! The voice of an approachable expert – a warm, friendly voice with authority and 'relatability'. Sophisticated and middle-aged in tone, and in a similar vocal space to actors such as Jeremy Irons and Ben Whishaw.
Chris can lighten his voice to young adult, or darken it to more poetic, theatrical, or romantic tones. Pythonesque characters, transatlantic accents, and South London are on the menu too.
Chris Middleton studied English and Drama at Kent University, where he appeared in productions by Howard Brenton, Bertolt Brecht, and others. Although primarily known today as a writer and robotics expert – with multiple appearances on BBC radio and TV – Chris has turned his speaking voice to radio (multiple BBC interview appearances), podcasting (multiple IT clients), public speaking, conferences, event hosting, webinars, and voiceover/narration (animated films, and more). Under another name, Chris is also a professional musician, with national airplay.
He has excellent mic technique and is very experienced in recording studios (his own and other people's) and in broadcast environments.
