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.
RJ naturally has a commanding, persuasive, neutral/RP British sound with a voice age from mid 20s to early 50s... Perfect for grabbing attention and the all important call to action.
He's a master of UK (and foreign) accents too, able to turn on his warm, trustworthy and fashionable Yorkshire tones of his birthplace as easily as the regional Scottish accents from where he now lives. Need a fun Cornish sound? He's got you. Perhaps a cheeky Cockney? Trust RJ.
Working from his own studio with WaveLab, Wavosaur and the ever reliable Audacity, he found a perfect match for his voice in the Samson MTR101a microphone through Focusrite's Scarlett Solo preamp after numerous trials. Delivering superb sound, every time.
Voice Description & Style Typically naturally strong, smooth, persuasive, passionate, engaging, intelligent, refined, commanding, dramatic, attention grabbing, But he's versatile and provides whatever the situation calls for.
“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!”

He then went on to HMV Radio, Galaxy Bristol, Radio Cheltenahm and ElevenSEVENTY before joining the Captial Radio Group as station producer in 1995.
From there he joined Southern FM to host the afternoon show before producing Danny & Nicky In The Morning. He left in 1999 to host Drive on 103.2 Power FM where he remained until 2004, before joining kmfm in Kent and then Media Sound Holdings in Sussex, spending 4 years there as Head of Commercial Production.
Best known as a voice-over artist, especially imaging for radio and TV stations, his work is heard most notably in the UK as well as South Africa, the Middle East and Europe through his production company, Rik Scott Creative. Clients included Bauer, BBC, Wireless Group, M&S and NATS.

We’ve used Rik since I joined the station. His voice sits excellently as our station voice – powerful and strong for our Top of Hour imaging – but his tracks are very versatile, which have led us to use him to voice a number of different programmes and trails. His pacing and strength of delivery come in to their own when it comes to sport trails, or situations where we want our imaging to sound dramatic. Rik’s versatility, however, is also evident when he voices other items of audio for us, such as our Sunday breakfast show, which is gentler, calmer but still strong – or for when we’ve asked for his voice to sound like he’s having fun, such as our running gag in our Hereford Marathon trail!
– Mike Wyer, BBC Hereford & Worcester
I first started working with Rik when I was head of production for Guardian Media’s Real Radio Network and he was so good that when I moved to Bauer Media…I took him with me. He’s a true professional, polite, courteous and an exceptionally good voice over. He’s always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. I can’t recommend him highly enough.
– Chris Ward, Bauer Media
