PREMIUM BRITISH VOICEOVER ARTIST
I'm a professional British English voiceover artist as heard this year on TV commercials for GoDaddy, Flora Gold & Star Wars, the worldwide MINI Countryman launch, material for Wrangler, easyJet, Kellogg's, Huawei, Booking.com, Jaguar, Marks & Spencer, Coca-Cola, Dell, Expedia, Starbucks, Johnson & Johnson, Mercedes-Benz, Cisco, MasterCard, Chevrolet, Ikea, Samsung, Aegon, Unilever, Toshiba, HP, Alfa Romeo, Absolut Vodka, Carlsberg, Madame Tussauds, Microsoft, Admiral Insurance, bank adverts, the BBC and documentary narration with millions of views. What can this British voice do for you?
I have a friendly, relaxed, warm, informative, authoritative, creative, conversational voice style... but commercial hard sell if needed! With a chilled Jony Ive Apple tone or perhaps the fun and wry Dave Lamb tone from Come Dine With me, I can provide you with the voice and style to suit your requirements. Perfect for radio station imaging, television continuity, movie trailers, commercials, websites, explainer videos, eLearning, podcasts, audio books, on-hold automation and much more. I'm often described as friendly, corporate, natural, conversational, professional. And devastatingly gorgeous, obviously.
Please note - all samples in Joe's showreel are from genuine projects that currently airing or are available online.
