"Bright mid-range adult soft-accent Scottish voice"
Rob Matheson

I have a flexible vocal range, incorporating different styles and tones. I specialise in conversational, warm, informative styles.

My core accent is soft, educated Scottish which is often assumed to be mid-Atlantic. My accent will disappear for generic west London, or adapt for English regional voices.

I can also perform pseudo- Australian, New Zealand and (some) U.S. accents.

I will never promise something I cannot deliver, but I will always work to get as close as I can to the client's requirements. I welcome direction and I'm equally confident in my ability to interpret scripts quickly. My goal is to deliver what the client wants efficiently to minimise turnaround time and studio costs.
