HERE'S A LITTLE ABOUT ME AND MY VOICE OVER EXPERIENCE
Rob has been voicing for 15 years but cut his teeth in radio, first on a pirate radio station and then legitimately on the BBC and Independent radio. For the past 27 years, Rob has been a sound engineer for a top flight London based and advertising led sound studio, where he would direct voices on a daily basis as well as voice himself.
RECENTLY BOOKED PROJECTS
The Lord of the Rings radio campaign across London for the stage show. Various radio and tv campaigns for EMI. ING Direct.
English with a British accent
Rob's voice is naturally very malleable and he believes in the elasticity of the voice. He is very comfortable with almost any style of delivery, warm, dramatic, animated, serious,, comical, hard sell, soft sell, report style, vintage,rp, corporate, deep or mid pitch. Overall, Rob's voice is very flexible. He does like to play to his natural accent as well and stretch the boundaries with that.
DIALECTS, Character voices and vocal impressions
Rob love's what the voice can do as a musical instrument and believes that is what the voice is. We speak in musical notation every day. Rob simply extends this to cover a diverse range of characters with both male and female inclinatioins and old and young alike. Rob also likes experimenting with a range of cartoon styled voices which he finds fun to do. Rob also has a range of British accents he can turn to although this is generally used within his characterisations and not as straight reads but maybe that might be up for you to judge when you listen to his reel.
