Donal Cox - 5-Star Reviews - 5-Star Customer Service

Let me introduce to you a voice that's deep , rich and warm - that holds people's attention with ease. Smooth , epic and authoritative , humorous and quirky - or plain straight for factual corporate narration.

It's why so many clients in both UK and US book this talent regularly and repeatedly. That, plus my reliability and commitment to your satisfaction - as demonstrated in my testimonials below.

Visit donalcoxactor on YouTube to hear what my voice can bring to a story - from Scrabble 'Anagram Lovers' to 25 years of Global Environment Facility at the Smithsonian, New York.

Delighted with my work for them, top global PR agency Edelman told me recently "You should record every story ever written".

If you'd like your own story brought to life by a consummate professional - please, get in touch.

My voice has been described as compelling, engaging, dynamic, conversational, authentic, as distinctive.

My voice has been compared against Ian McKellen and David Attenborough.

I have used a number of different services to find and procure talent. Working with Donal was my first on The process was amazing and easy to navigate. As for Donal - wow. WOW. What a voice and the first read was EXACTLY what I was looking for. It's clear Donal has a wealth of experience in VO and was able to follow my basic copy notes and absolutely thrill my team behind this project. I'll be returning to for more work and will definitely be using Donal Cox again.
