Articulate. Classic. Contemporary. Freelance \"live\" announcer for national, network BBC TV.
I am a highly experienced British voice-over, having worked consistently for over 25 years in broadcast, corporate and multi-media for world recognised brands including BBC, Discovery, AETN, and Nat Geo. Not one off projects but year in, year out.
For 12 months across 2013 and 2104 I provided all (male) programme sponsorship indents for National Classic fm. I continue to provide promo support throughout 2016.
My style embraces RP nuanced to appeal to modern audiences. I deliver a versatility of reads from warm, light and frothy through to the sensitive and serious.
My approach to voice production is one that is both confident and professional. I like to think my business dealings are transparent and honest and having been a producer myself, I respect and understand what is necessary from your perspective. Working at distance, mutual trust is imperative.
Where possible, I am happy to provide bespoke demos and welcome enquiries attached to a range of budgets and requirements.

Over a decade of working together on many television documentaries, he has, on every occasion, given a performance that you’d struggle to find fault with. He has a voice that is both clear and precise but also appealing and a delight to listen to. His professional standards are of the highest order, but always makes the trickiest assignments seem relaxed and pleasant. …Jenni Pozzi, Reversioning Producer, History Channel
Working with David is always a pleasure; he has an innate understanding of what we are trying to achieve, and a great ability to bring the script alive, this combined with a voice that is flexible and commands attention makes our sessions together a real treat.Rodney Read, Freelance producer
David is a dream to work with! With the stamina that allows him to last for hours on end and a voice that requires the minimum technical attention, he allows the engineer the flexibility focus on the recording itself for a smooth running session. Unnoticeable breaths and clean page turns mean that the job of editing is very quick and straight forward too.Sussanah Lawrence, Studio engineer
David is fantastic to work with. A quality voice with superb range and great attention to detail. He's flexible, friendly and dedicated to giving a read that's spot on every time!K. Kerr Senior Sponsorship & Promotions Producer Heart, Gold, LBC 97.3 & Classic FM
David is one of the most well-prepared and professional voice-over artists I have worked with, and he brought a very polished quality to the series of wildlife documentaries he narrated. His voice is authoritative without being overwhelming and conveys emotion without descending into schmaltz. He’s quick, ‘directable’ and a pleasure to record with.Plimsoll Productions. Hannah Hoare Producer / Director.
