Highlights

"In a world" of ex-radio announcers and inexperienced talent with USB microphones, Graeme provides both a fresh voice and a mature and professional approach. Specializing in commercials and broadcast/web narration, Graeme's range goes from "guy-next-door" to commercial reads with lots of testosterone; to smooth and sophisticated documentary narration.

He has spent 25 years in the advertising business in both agencies and as a client, so he knows the session process from both sides of the recording booth window. This experience means he "gets" the intent of a commercial quickly and takes direction well - delivery of the right performance for the project is quick and painless.

A 25 year veteran of the marketing business. I used to sit on the other side of the glass, and therefore understand the greater business needs behind the voiceover.

Highly literate and informed, can easily read complex narration scripts or literature with authority and ease. Understands and delivers nuance in pronunciation and syntax.

Testimonials

Graeme made our first experience working with a voice artist very enjoyable. His approach was relaxed and professional. We will definitely be using his talents again for future eLearning projects.

He was more than willing to adjust his delivery to meet our specific needs. He took the time to set up a call and “rehearse” the narration to make sure the final product would be exactly what we were looking for. The turnaround time was quick and ahead of our deadline.

It’s refreshing to work with someone that cares as much about the project as you do.

Beyond a mere announcer, Graeme is a voice artist. What this means to me is he sounds like the voice I hear in my head while I write scripts—only less nasal. Some people just get the way a script is supposed to be read. Graeme is one of those people.

Graeme is my go-to voice for corporate image and retail - sincere, believable, and consistent. With over twenty years as an international marketing professional Graeme is uniquely able to interpret and deliver what my clients require.

From the intimate nature of commercial voice-overs to the qualified sound of a corporate video narrative, Graeme delivers the quality I need.
