Believable. Warm. Friendly. Formal. Authoritative. Informative. Informal. Convincing. Engaging. I can offer you a range of committed vocal performances to give 3-dimensionality to the characters you need. I was born and grew up in Britain and now live in Barbados. I can communicate messages clearly and convincingly to English-speakers across the globe. Through my recording studio I can offer you high quality digital audio files, professionally recorded and edited to your specifications with fast, efficient turnaround times. With an experience background ranging from a radio announcer to reading audiobooks, I can give you the performance you are looking for. As a professional musician and composer I have had success in commercial advertising with Gold (Caribbean) and Silver (US District) ADDY AWARDS in 2013 for the "Get RUBiS, Get Going" jingle in which I sang, composed the vocal melody and the lyrics. I have had multiple placements for songs I co-wrote, and performed on, in syndicated shows on US Prime Time TV.

I have been doing professional voice-over work since 2003 for international brands such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, LIME (Cable & Wireless) and ADDY® Award-winning vocals/composition for RUBiS; I have compositional credits for placements in US Prime Time TV Shows such as The Ghost Whisperer, Jericho, 90210, Lincoln Heights and placements in ESPN® programming plus the movie trailer for The Stone Angel (Alliance Films/Handmade Films International).
Hosting a morning talk show on radio for 4 years, I have gained experience under pressure in delivering live commercial script reads as well as news reading.
As the co-owner of a successful commercial recording studio, I am also able to offer Editing, Mixing, Music Production as well as ADR services.

"Not only is JJ a pleasure to collaborate with, he delivers first class work whatever the scope of the project. In my experience, he really listens and is therefore able to truly fulfill a project brief. His understanding of marketing objectives, strategies and tactics mean his contribution an ideas have been invaluable to the success of many of our campaigns. Two pieces of work stand out in particular as creatively excellent by any standard: The "Get RUBiS, Get Going" jingle, which proved a great success with the public and our client, as well as a beautifully emotional piece of music for Cayman First Insurance. However, just as important in today's business environment is the smart, efficient and professional manner in which day to day business is conducted."

Soren Narnia for Job #174685 Whatever You Find Within You Just as he did with another long work of mine, Julian brought this one to vivid life without flaw--this time displaying a flair for comedy equal to his flair for drama. I don't even feel the need to send him instructions in advance; I just send him the pages and stand back and let him surprise me. He's a total pro who takes the work very seriously too, going back over a recording with a fine-toothed comb before he's done.Apr 1, 2016
