Voice Over Artist


As a result of Chris Dawes’s voice being heard constantly doing his commentating or hosting work, he was approached to provide voice over work for a number of requirements.  Due to time constraints when all of this was in addition to a full time job, this side was only ever work that came to him, rather than pro-actively looking for and auditioning for voice over work.  Now that Chris has moved away from that demanding full time job and set up Chris Dawes Comms Ltd full time, Voice Over work is something he is intending to actively pursue now.  This has and can include commentary voice over, narration to pieces, adverts, training videos, health & safety videos, public announcements; and so the list goes on.


Whilst his style is not necessarily about being characters (yet), he is able to understand the targeted audience and message, and therefore the required tone and style. Whether this be serious and professional, humorous/whimsical, or excited and energetic; Chris is able to work with the client to establish and provide the piece in a suitable manner, and within the necessary time scales.  Chris Dawes Comms Ltd has facilities to enable Voice Over pieces to be recorded and provided electronically, thus removing the need for geography to impact the contract, but is also able to travel should it be required or more suitable.


“I really enjoy voice over work, because there is a lot more to it than I naively thought when I first started doing some of this work.  The scope of work will not just include the script, but a description of who the target audience is, and what the message is that is trying to be portrayed or emphasised.  It therefore makes it feel rather more artistic than simply reading a script, and you have to dig deep to get it over in the manner that does the finished piece the justice that it deserves.”


Chris Dawes Comms Ltd can provide individual Voice Over pieces, or retainer contracts for multiple pieces as and when required.

"Having collaborated with Chris on a number of commercial briefs, I can confirm his upbeat enthusiasm for every challenge we put his way. His total professionalism to deliver nothing but the very best content in the voiceover arena makes him an absolute pleasure to work with."
