With his versatile warm authoritative voice, Simon Prebble, a British born performer of considerable talent and experience, has built a successful career that spans the Atlantic. As a stage, film, radio and television actor he has played in everything from Soaps to Shakespeare, as a voice-over he has recorded over 2,000 commercials, but it is as a veteran narrator of some 450 audio book titles that he has made his mark since moving to New York in 1990. Simon’s audio performances have received critical acclaim from both fans, and his peers. As one of Audiofile Magazine’s ‘Golden Voices’ and ‘Voices of the Century’, he has received over 30 ‘Earphone’ awards, 6 ‘Listen Up’ awards and in 2006, ‘Publisher’s Weekly’ named him ‘Narrator of the Year’. In 2010, he was Booklist's 'Voice of Choice'. Also in 2010, having been previously nominated fourteen times for the industry's own 'Oscars', he was finally awarded a coveted ‘Audie’.

Why he strikes the right chord. it is not just Prebble's British accent or his rich tenor-though both are certainly pleasing to the ear. Instead what makes his performances so remarkable is his chameleon-like facility for character and accent He displays an impressive knack for making subtle changes of intonation to convey attitude and character, switching easily between male and female voices. In short he is a consummate performer.Publisher's Weekly
Prebble is a master of pacing, capturing each venue or character with subtle inflections. With remarkable skillAudiofile
he matches his cadence,not only to the text, but the listeners reactions as well. He echoes the ambiguity of the characters with his careful phrasing, heightened pitch, and judicial use of pause. The narration is so skilled that
one forgets that Prebble is there.
