I have cultivated a lucrative sideline in voiceover work since coming into broadcasting – I am perhaps best known for my work for Ocean Finance & Drayton Manor Park TV ads as well as a host of clients on radio, both local and national. I have my own studio with ISDN capacity for quick turnaround where necessary.
Here's the view of one of the companies I deal with direct - Cube Productions here in the West Midlands:-
“Ian is undoubtedly one of the most talented and versatile voiceovers we work with.
An amazing impressionist, he can pastiche everyone from Jim Royle to Fabio Capello
and throw in a hundred different accents and original character voices for good measure.
All that – and a great bloke to boot. What more could anyone ask?”
