CONFIDENT | WARM | ENGAGING | VERSATILE
I love making your scripts sound awesome.
Whether a 20 second ad, a 30 minute explainer, hours of in-game character dialogue; or a 150,000 word audiobook, I engage fully with your work in my prep; and deliver consistently when we record. Plus I always think on my feet and have options in my back pocket should you need some inspiration in the booth.
What do people book me for?
Well I have a go-to natural MVO sound but I'm also often used when clients need to bring fun and playfulness to their extreme characters. So for example:
Smooth rich MVO tones and quirky comedic characters.
High status entitled leaders and terrifying glottal non-humans.
A versatile range means that with audiobooks I can both narrate the book and voice all the characters. I use my skills as an actor to identify different audiobook characters vocally with tone; and to root them in reality with intention and truth.
I am also right at home as a straight-shooter and can make even the most complex pharmaceutical corporates sound effortless and natural.
"I can safely say that working with Jonathan is a dream"
"His compelling reading and attention to detail means I can always relax when he’s doing a job"
"HE IS FAST, UNDERSTANDS EXACTLY WHAT THE CLIENT WANTS, AND HIS TECHNIQUE IS IMPECCABLE"
Let’s do this!
One of my favourite things to do is head out the studio and get stuck into a session with you and the engineer. But if that is tricky at the moment, I have a pro home studio mic set-up and can record with you via Source Connect or whichever remote recording solution you prefer to use. I'm a secret tech-geek too so I will happily edit, finish and deliver anything we record should you need. Take a look below at my home-studio tech-spec.
Whether we work together in a Soho studio; or my solo studio I hope to be breathing some life into your words soon! My agents Jamie and Julie at Loud and Clear Voices would love to hear from you.
