FAQs for a voiceover artist


Do I need a voice over?

Well, of course I'm going to say yes! But there are many ways a professional voice over artist can benefit your project. Here's a few: a voice provides context and meaning; it connects better with the audience; it makes a brand familiar and memorable; it engages the viewer and keeps them watching for longer; it taps into people's emotions and makes them think; it builds trust.

Isn't voice over just talking into a microphone? 

In a word, no. Voice over artists have spent years practicing, honing their craft and expanding their range. Using a professional voiceover means not only a broadcast quality recording, but excellent interpretation of the script - ensuring the message is delivered in a style and tone that resonates with the audience.

Why should I hire you?
If you’re looking to work with a versatile British male voice over artist, then you’re in the right place. (I’m also friendly, polite, professional and VERY FUNNY).

If you haven’t listened/watched my demo reels yet, do that first so you can get an idea if I’m the right fit for your project. Then take a look at the brands I’ve worked with and read some testimonials.


I want you to be confident you’re making the right choice. (Go back to FAQs)

How do I hire you?
Give me a call or use the contact form to get in touch.


Some people will know what they want already but otherwise, we can have a chat about your project and find the best way to approach it.

Let me have as much information as possible up front: script, timings, music, pronunciations of names or words you think I might stumble on. You get the picture.

If all is well, I’ll get a contract over to you for you to sign. (Go back to FAQs)

What editing will you perform on the file?
You will receive a broadcast ready piece of audio: compressed to bring the loudest and quietest bits closer together and normalized to bring the overall volume up. Depending on the project, I may also remove breath sounds. 

Can you add music?
I can. I have access to a library of thousands of tracks or I can use music you provide. (
