James has a wonderful, resonant actor’s voice, that we can’t get enough of. From Shakespeare to children’s stories, James is our go-to narrator. Fast turnaround, perfect, clean and quiet audio files delivered every time.

Working with James is an absolute pleasure. I’ve worked with him several times and each experience resulted in exactly the tone and tenor of recording I sought. His extensive experience has created a performer who both listens to direction and offers quality feedback and suggestions if you wish. Bottom line: He’s a producer and director’s dream.

Bigmouth Audio has been working with James for several years and we continue to do so whenever we can! James has a versatility that is hard to find these days, whether we need great characters or someone who can deliver a client’s message with authority and gravitas, James is the guy! When we had the opportunity to develop our own award winning kids show; “Once Upon a Time in Zombieville” – James was the first name on the cast list. We even named a character after him!
