Rick Murphy

Highlights

My normal speaking voice is naturally deep and somewhat gritty. Capable of smoothing it out and changing pitch for a friendlier "guy next door" effect. Also a character specialist (see Animation Reel).

My name is Rick Murphy and I have been working in all areas of voice-overs internationally since completing my training with Peter Rofé of PDR Voice-Over Coaching in July of 2010. Since then, I have read for top casting directors, producers and representatives of the voice-over industry at large. As a result of regular meetings with various professionals, I have been working steadily on a freelance basis and booked several projects for clients including but not limited to Hewlett Packard, Doritos, Snickers and Harley Davidson. I also provided several character voices for Sega’s Crazy Taxi: City Rush, Battery Acid Games’ Highway Rider, and I just finished recording for Chuggington: We Are The Chuggineers! produced by Story Toys, Inc. Dublin, Ireland.

Previously, I worked full-time as Studio Manager and Associate Coach at PDR Voice-Over Coaching having stepped down on good terms in order to pursue my own voice-over career. I am actively auditioning in-person and remotely from my fully-equipped home studio. I also attend various voice-over workshops as I am always looking to improve my vocal abilities. Should any projects come up that you feel we may be able to work together on, feel free to contact me as I would be more than happy to discuss any potential collaboration.

Testimonials

"Rick did a fantastic job on voicing my noir detective novel, The Woman In Blue for an audiobook version. He was very responsive, extremely professional, and an absolute joy to work with. I look forward to working with him on any future installments in my Nick O'Brien Detective Novel series, as well as considering Rick for possible work on some Sci-Fi projects I have in the works. This was my first audiobook and working with a great producer like Rick made this a smooth, seamless, and pleasant experience.

I highly recommend him for any voiceover work. The novel he voiced for me had a myriad of characters with different ethnicities, backgrounds, and education levels and Rick did a great job in providing the variety needed without overly "hamming it up". I couldn't be more pleased with how the project turned out and would definitely work with Rick again in the future."

David G. Johnson, Faith X Fiction Press

"I'd thoroughly recommend Rick. We asked him to do a soundalike for one of our children's apps and he did a very professional job. With minimal direction we got a great voice match with lots of personality. A good rate and a fast turnaround helped too!"

Jim Pipe, Story Toys: Dublin, Ireland

"Rick has voiced a number of audio books for us and we have been quite pleased with both his professionalism, quality and turn around time. He has great delivery with character voices and it's apparent that he studies the script and personalizes each character, to make them both believable and captivating!"

Tom Gauger, Real Musician Pro
