Highlights

***13 Year Voice Over Veteran.***

Michael is capable of natural, personable and conversational delivery. He also enjoys the Hard Sell, without sounding forced. From the guy next door to the demigod of your nightmares, he becomes whatever voice is needed. Michael thrives on the character driven delivery. Any chance to stretch his voice and use it fully intrigues him most.

Michael also enjoys being soothing, calming and influencing the listener with subtle tones and volume. If you need big, warm, chilling, intense or soft as well as edgy, gripping, exciting, scary, funny and sad, Michael is perfect for your project.

Mike has also given reads in a somber tone, grim, gritty and strong. Other professional deliveries that have been part of his work as a production director and producer of radio advertisements include sexy, sarcastic, irreverent, bossy and the friendly neighbor.

Michael's years of experience helped develop his wide range of tone and expressive reads. From warm rich tones and growling deep lows to piercing highs and personable mid ranges, Michael Keown is your best choice for male voice overs.
