Introduction & client list
I'm a professional British English voiceover artist celebrating my 21st Year in Voiceover, as heard this year on TV commercials for GoDaddy, Flora Gold & Star Wars, the worldwide MINI Countryman launch, material for AirFrance, Emirates, Cancer Research UK, Wrangler, easyJet, Kellogg's, Huawei, Booking, Jaguar, Marks & Spencer, Coca-Cola, Dell, Expedia, Starbucks, Johnson & Johnson, Mercedes-Benz, Cisco, MasterCard, Chevrolet, Ikea, Samsung, Aegon, Unilever, Toshiba, HP, Alfa Romeo, Absolut Vodka, Carlsberg, Madame Tussauds, Microsoft, Admiral Insurance, bank adverts, the BBC and documentary narration with millions of views.

Joe's Sir David Attenborough impression & impersonation
The voice of the great broadcaster Sir David Attenborough has been seducing us as a nation since the 1950s. It has been much imitated but never bettered, and the implicit wisdom of its gentle and measured BBC tones has become a byword for quiet authority. Joe's impression is about as close as you'll get to the real thing (but he can ham it up as a character voice too if required!).

What can this British voice do for you?
I have a friendly, relaxed, warm, informative, authoritative, creative, conversational voice style... but commercial hard sell if needed! With a chilled Jony Ive Apple tone or perhaps the fun and wry Dave Lamb tone from Come Dine With me, I can provide you with the voice and style to suit your requirements.

Perfect for radio station imaging, television continuity, movie trailers, commercials, websites, explainer videos, eLearning, podcasts, audio books, on-hold automation and much more. I'm often described as friendly, corporate, natural, conversational, professional. And devastatingly gorgeous, obviously.

Please note - all samples in Joe's showreel are from genuine projects that are currently airing or are available online.

Microsoft promotional material (currently 350,000 views)

Joe is a dream to work with. Don't hesitate to hire him you will be very happy with the quality of his work and his total professionalism.

One Direction (band promotion)

Mr. Wakeford accommodated my client's schedule by turning around two readings for a project almost immediately. Based on my direction, his reading of the script was intelligent, insightful, and bang-on. Based on this experience I'd recommend him if your project requires a voice like his.

Roche (the world's largest pharmaceutical company)

Joe was a pleasure to work with, and helped us out a lot with last minute changes, we highly recommend him!
