piratey_vector_version-svg Aaaaaargh! If you’ve landed on this page, then the chances are that you’re in search of a pirate or sailor style voice for your video, cartoon, animation or advert. Well you’re in luck because I can help! As a voiceover artist specialising in characters, accents and celebrity impressions, I’ve had clients from all over the world contact me to deliver a pirate or salty sailor style voice!

That Pirate Sound

When we think of a pirate or salty sea-dog voice, we hear the growl, the gravel in the throat and that South West England accent. Do all pirates come from Cornwall?! I’m happy to work with you to get the exact tone you require and can dial it up or down to suit your needs.
My pirate voice can be heard on radio and tv adverts, explainer videos and more! I’ve even been asked to voice the iconic Captain Birds Eye! Below are a few examples of what I can deliver for you.

Splashy The Whale

This commercial for the Splashy The Whale kids game was broadcast on Nickelodeon and Nick Jnr.

Captain Birds Eye

It was an honour to be asked to be the voice of the Captain Birds Eye, in this radio advert.

A nice little animation for Microsoft Office 365

Salty Sea Dog!

FAQ About My Voiceover Services

Q: What am i getting for my money?

A: When you book me to voice for you, you’re not just paying for my voiceover, but the reassurance that it will be broadcast quality with no erroneous room noises for you to have to worry about.

Q: Will I have to edit or do anything to the voiceover?

A: Unless you’re a producer or prefer me to send you the raw file, you can be assured that I’ll edit my read for you, so you receive a finished, high quality file.

Q: How long will my voiceover take?

A: I pride myself on a fast turnaround and will always endeavour to send you back your file within 24 hours.

Q: I’m not entirely sure how to explain the voice, character or style I need, can you help?

A: Any mistakes made by myself will be corrected free of charge. Any script changes that occur after I have sent my recording will have to be charged. The fee will depend on the length of the read and number of changes.
