Jonathan is a mature male voice described as ‘authoritative but friendly.’
He specialises in live broadcast and events and is a popular choice as a live ‘Voice of God’ announcer.
His accent is Rp English, but not posh. Voice age 50+
Jonathan specialises as a ‘Voice Of God’ for live events, particularly awards shows where anything can happen! Jargon-laden scripts written by the client with no changes allowed, unexpected audience reactions, last-second changes to sightread, all taken in stride.
In the studio, he has decades of experience at presentation, news reading, commercials and trailers, corporate narrations: all making use of the ‘authoritative but friendly’ tone (a client’s phrase).
His latest branch into online events has included live continuities for the multi-studio linkup, pre-recorded countdowns and intros for a huge financial webinar, pre-recorded nominee citations for an award show and live sightreading of audience questions for a banking AGM.

“I have worked with Jonathan as voiceover for a number of busy award shows. Jonathan has a great voice that cuts through any mumbling murmuring crowd cleanly. He is charming with the client and gives a word perfect delivery. I would have no hesitation in recommending Jonathan for any job of this type.” – Tess Townsend, Producer/Showcaller
“Jonathan’s been my ‘go-to-person’ for Voice services for over 20 years. His sheer professionalism – you get what you ask for, when you need it – his ability to respond to what is happening and adapt as necessary: and the fact clients love his voice, which is a mixture of interest in what is being said with a note of authority: make him a great person to work with.” – Amanda Rayner, Producer
