For some years, on and off, I did voiceover work – nothing particularly ‘high end’, just voice tracks for online property sales videos, some ‘call waiting’ recording, and a series of self-hypnosis recordings.
Occasionally, I would take part in collaborative online audio dramas and always enjoyed those the most, because they involved being more creative – performing unusual character voices and so forth.
I’m at a point now where I won’t record anything I don’t enjoy or that isn’t in some way fun.
The following two stories were written by Jeremy Reynolds, who I met quite by chance on an online network mainly related to tech topics.
I enjoyed the scripts he sent me and he deemed my voice a good fit for his material. And the most important thing is that they were enormous fun to read and record!
I’ll let Jeremy’s words give you a flavour of what you might expect to hear should you decide to hit the ‘play’ button:
“We hope you find some time to have a listen to this ever on-going spoken word project, and enjoy spending some time in the erratic and puzzling world of a long ago vision of hot, summery England. Filled with mysterious foes, hard nosed and hard headed sleuths, with an almost unlimited supply of liquid refreshment, to aid and direct their endeavours.
This is the world of Mr. Terence, ‘Terry’ Crabtree and his colleague and diarist, Major William, ‘Bill’ Plumpton, (Retired)
Together they are plunged by scheming, invidious and fiendishly deadly foes, into a plot that may bring about the very end of the British people, decency and normality, and quiet afternoon sessions in rose decked and quietly murmuring Public Houses.
Thank you for popping by and listening.”
