About Jan Simonsen

I have a very versatile smooth, baritone voice capable of soothing narration, excited and animated voices, accents, characters and noises (I'm the only person I know that can impersonate a coffee machine milk steamer).

I have my own professionally equipped studio at home, so I'm always ready to record for you, and can turn around audio very quickly.

Voice Over Testimonials

I’d highly recommend Jan, he’s so professional whilst still being very friendly and easy to get along with. We required a funny presenter for our project and we weren’t disappointed, two exec producers from TV were highly impressed too so that speaks for itself really. Considering the role came to him last minute he was still so prepared and interested, it was really encouraging to see. Thanks Jan!

Melissa Stafford

Sunderland University / all3media

Very professional and a brilliant voice over actor. Highly Recommend.

Hippy Theatre Company

I'd highly recommend Jan for consideration in your next production. They were diligent in responding to the VO brief for my new documentary and provided both an in-depth and insightful voice performance.
