Brian Morton has that adaptable voice where one minute he's a top-10 market radio newsman and the next minute he's a laconic Latino or excitable Jamaican. In other words, he's adaptable, professional and versatile.
Raised by career Foreign Service parents, years overseas gave Brian the skill of mimicry, while a rich bass-baritone voice put him on the radio in the United States Air Force, as a program host to Baltimore's public radio NPR affiliate WYPR-FM and in the newsrooms of all-news radio WTOP in Washington and news-talk WBAL-AM in Baltimore.
As a professional stand-up performer and improv actor, Brian understand how voice characterization creates a role in the mind of the listener. Brian has been a professional magician for more than a decade and has been performing for more than five years with the Do Or Die Productions comedy improv murder mystery troupe in Baltimore and Washington.
In the world of politics, often there is little time to waste when reacting to the most recent news, and as a communications director for a major Washington public-interest nonprofit, Brian was often recruited to write, produce and narrate audio spots on short turn-around for special-interest political campaigns, so he knows what "on a budget" means. And he can even do that deep and raspy "movie guy" voice that you often hear in movie trailers ("In a world without hope...").
For anything from authoritative to comedic, from dry to droll, Brian can make your product a memorable one!

I worked as a broadcast news anchor, reporter and radio program host in Baltimore and Washington D.C. for more than ten years (WTOP, WBAL-AM, WYPR-FM) before leaving to go into performing (I am also a professional magician by trade). I have done voice-over work for political advertisements and issue-specific radio ads and radio promotions.
I have five years of acting experience in a improvisational comedy troupe, and can perform the following accents and dialects: upper-class British, older African-American male (think Redd Foxx), "street," African-American, Latino male (generic or "Mexican"), older Jamaican male (I spent three years in Kingston, Jamaica as a child), and adult Indian male (think "Apu" from "The Simpsons").
