John Bell Young


John Bell Young's voice type is ideal as a spokesperson, instructor, storyteller, or narrator. Though Standard English defines his normal speaking voice, he commands a number of regional accents of the American north east. His voice is poised in a medium baritone and is at once suave, sophisticated,and ardent where it has to be, but also energetic; it conveys erudition, balance, enthusiasm and assurance. His meliflous vocal delivery is distinguished by informed articulation and measured phrasing that conveys sense and substance, as it as it transforms and gives emphasis to a text's visual elements. He is an ASCAP member/affilate. See www.johnbellyoung.com for more information.
