About Michael Johnston

Overview

I have that genuine, youthful, real-person voice. Don't settle for an adult's imitation of a teenager when you can have the REAL THING! With over 10 years of experience in VO, I have recorded hundreds of episodes of cartoons, video games, animations and commercials. Some of the clients I have worked for include Disney/Pixar, Warner Bros, Sony/PS4, NBC, CW, CBS, MTV, HBOMax, Netflix, Hulu, Square Enix, Nintendo, Electronic Arts, Bandai Namco/Funimation, Microsoft Studios, Elastic Games, Riot Games, American Red Cross, Mattel, and LEGO. (Partial List) My voice range is anywhere between child and young adult, but to sum it all up: I am the boy next door. The son. The compassionate and trustworthy narrator, ready to speak children or deliver a message to my peers that really makes a difference. I sing tenor. I also perform crazy character voices and accents. General American, Southern, LA, NY, RP-English are my specialties. I love playing that annoying kid, too! Please check out my versatile list of demos. My industry specialties include, but are not limited to, TV and radio commercials, animation, cartoons, video games, apps, children's stories or audiobooks, PSAs, internet, podcasts, YouTube, and educational voiceovers. I have a complete professional recording studio setup equipped with Source Connect, Phone Patch, a VocalBooth, an Apollo Twin Interface, and a selection of different microphones including the Neumann TLM-102 and the Sennheiser MKH-416. Enthusiastic, energetic, fun, kid next door, goofy, nerdy, friendly, informative, funny, animated, confident, caring, young kid, sarcastic, warm, fresh. These are just some of the words that can describe the read that I can deliver for your project. Add me to your favorites list and send me a message today!

Michael is a very talented VA who did a great job for our project. He communicated clearly, promptly, and professionally and produced excellent quality files for our project. We appreciated his work ethic, his honest feedback, and his timely turn-around as well. We would be happy to work with him again in the future.

Testimonials

I highly recommend Michael Johnston as voice talent for your project. He is incredibly professional and talented. His work went above and beyond, he was dedicated to the project, flexible, creative, and did more than was required to make sure we were happy with the voice work. He had a very quick turnaround time and everything was high-quality: the sound levels and his performance were top notch.

IAAS Films

Bottom line: Michael is an incredible actor and voice actor. I have never seen someone at his age with as much versatility in their voice, as much courage and dedication to their craft. There is nothing he can't do. As a coach, I recognize that spark that he has, that 'thing' that only hugely successful people have. I saw it the first time I met him.

Sunday Muse (Voice Actor/Coach)

Michael has been my “Go-To” youthful voice for my voice over narration projects. Not only does he take direction well, but he goes beyond what I could even articulate, and communicates the emotion of the script unlike most I have listened to. In addition to having a great voice, the technical quality is immaculate. Microphone quality is great. No background noise, computer noise, echoes, etc. Top quality at every level. Very fast response times and willingness to re-record until it is exactly what I want (even though his first take is usually the last take). I would definitely recommend him.
