nce upon a time
a bonnie wee baby
was born on the banks of a
misty loch. As my mother held me in her big, hairy arms...
With 22 years as a Theatre professional in many different countries, I’ve found the best ways to communicate with extremely variable audiences & workforces, sensitive to each project’s needs.
"David Holmes possesses the rare ability to put you at ease immediately. This is in no small part due to his sincere & cultured voice." ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ Alicia, AQ
This 'ability' is also characteristic in my work, blending:
• Calm Instruction
Passionate about topics embracing Mental Wellbeing, Neuro-diversity, Understanding & Ecology.
I also love my work on audio-dramas, role-play training & animation characters with its need for fast-thinking and numerous emotional switches.
"A wonderful narrator & second-to-none character actor. If you haven't hired him yet (& why haven't you?) take it from me - you'll want to remedy that ASAP." ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑ Director, Fogtown series
I really enjoy my job and pride myself on being easy to work with.
I was born & raised in the south of bonnie Scotland to English parents and with relatives all around the UK.
I travelled to London to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and stayed in the city for 20 years.
I spent 22 years as a freelance Lighting Designer for theatre productions, working with teams
all around the UK, Europe and internationally.
A few years ago my family and I 'retired' from London to pastures new:
The very middle of the middle-of-nowhere in the very peaceful middle
of England... and we love it...
...and we got a cat; he's called Five.
Here we are
a safe pair of hands
Knowing the need for an exceptional acoustic space, I have had a building converted to exacting standards to become my studio.
Now, as a result of these standards, along with acoustic panelling, hanging baffles, felted walls and high-density foam, my studio offers a recording environment exceeding Broadcast Quality standards.
I have also invested in state-of-the-art voice recording hardware and software to make sure everything about your project is flawless and fast.
To rent a studio like this for a recording session would cost a pretty penny... but,
it's all included in my pricing.

CAN YOU GUARANTEE QUALITY?
As an experienced Voice Professional I deliver exactly what your project needs, whatever that may be,
Thoughtfully, Courteously & Quickly (as long as 'Five doesn't get in the way!).
I aim to not only achieve Maximum Engagement from all listeners, but from each one independently & on their own terms. I speak to people as individuals, en masse.
If your project is fast, upbeat & with a very specific direction…
If you have a sensitive topic that's taken months to write & you’re not quite sure how it should be delivered…
If you need your project finished by tomorrow & you’ve only just begun…
If you have a tongue-in-cheek animation & you need 3, no - 4, no - wait!.. 5 different characters/styles…
… then let me help you!
