RJ

RJ's voice has been chosen by internationally recognised names like BBC, Nickelodeon TV network, Johnson & Johnson, TalkSport, Smooth Radio, His Highness the Vice President and Prime Minister of United Arab Emirates, and more.  He helps creatives realise dreams for their work with his superb voice acting, narration, sound design and production.

Testimonials

“I recently put Rob forward for the voice-over for a Nickelodeon sponsorship campaign and they used his voice. I know that Rob can do other accents and voices with gravitas but what the client wanted was an upbeat friendly voice with a home-spun Yorkshire twang – and he delivered.”
~ David Chaudoir, Director, Nick Jr./Johnson & Johnson

"DreamCage Media Group, on behalf of Blurbinfo, recently commissioned RJ Bayley to perform, produce and do the sound design for an upcoming audiobook for indie sci-fi author Kneel Downe. The writing that we wanted turned into an audiobook required a lot more than just straight narration and RJ really stepped up to the mark.  Not only did he provide all the character voices with great creativity but also developed an immersive and atmospheric sound design that made the audio so much more than “just a reading”. Kneel Downe has said that the main character voice was “very close to how he ‘speaks’ to me” which shows how much RJ understood the source material and ran with it but he also took on board the minimal guidance that we gave him to produce something that we all love. RJs turnaround time was also incredibly quick and to the highest quality, with our change requests to the draft being actioned same day.  You may think that quality like this is well out of the price-range of independent authors but his pricing is highly affordable, especially for the quality product that we got at the end of it, and we have lined up several more projects for him to undertake in the future.  I would not hesitate in recommending his voiceover and audio services to anybody looking for quality creativity to enhance and give a new platform to their own work.”
~ Susan Omand, Co-Owner, DreamCage Media Group

"RJ went above and beyond from the outset of the project to completion: from a personalised sample of his work, an extremely speedy turnaround time, extra takes and great communication throughout. He understood the brief and provided a fantastic recording with the emotion and natural tone that we needed for the project. Would highly recommend his work. Thanks RJ!”

From girl next door, to energetic young Mum to edgy youth, Jenny's voice is equally at home in a regional radio ad or edgy Spotify sound bite as it is in a professional corporate read or compassionate charity project. 

In the late teens to mid-40’s age range, Jenny can temper tone from fun and enthusiastic to compassionate and understanding, sophisticated and stylish right around to confident and contemporary.  She is often booked as ‘the voice of the customer’ or when clients want an authentic northern voice to create real standout for their brand.

Spanish Female VO 4

Beatriz has a wide experience as a voice over talent in her country of origin, Spain.  Born in Madrid, she has no local accent whatsoever and sounds neutral in a Castilian Spanish pronunciation, with perfect enunciation of the sounds that other Spaniards might get wrong, like the ending Ds and Ts at the end of words like Madrid.  But she can also imitate the common accent and get a more natural street-like voice when needed.  

She has worked as a voice artist for many different media –television, radio, Internet and corporate video, amongst others.  Apart from voice over, she can do character dubbing or just voice acting.

Being raised in a creative atmosphere, from a singer mother and a creative advertising writer father, she has always shown an interest in the media and anything related to voice work.  She has undergone a workshop for voice training and film dubbing for almost three years, where she was practically trained lip-synching films with many different kinds of characters or dramatic tones.  Beatriz also has a passion for the written word, acting, writing and translating.  She has a vast experience as a translator as well as a personal interest in how to avoid things getting lost in translation.  Several years ago, she started her own personal blog about the most correct ways to translate from English to Spanish. 

Beatriz’s voice in Castilian Spanish is professional, clear and very well enunciated. From her long years experience and acting training, she can give your content the tone you desire and she’s very flexible at following your directions.

I have worked with Helen on several e-learning projects here in Dublin and I can say without hesitation that she is a first-rate voiceover artist. In her wonderful, neutral English accent, Helen demonstrated her ability not just to narrate, but to do character-based voicing as well. Add to this her exceptional sight-reading skills and her ability to interpret direction and you have the perfect ingredients for a VO who won't have to do take after take after take, ultimately saving you grief and expensive studio time. Helen is personable, reliable and professional and I'm happy to recommend her to anyone who needs a great VO for their project.
