REVIEWS

  1. Please extend my thanks to Nick; the recordings were completely spot on and were exactly what I wanted and needed!

    George Katsantonis, Technical Operations Manager, mynetfone Sydney

  2. Nick Bennett is a very professional Voice Over Artist and excellent to work with. He is flexible and friendly and can produce the results that clients are after on every occasion. I would highly recommend Nick Bennett.

    Declan Diacono - Sound Engineer, Klang, Newtown

  3. Is it getting hot in here? No … that’s just the warmth coming from Nick Bennett during a recording session. Nick doesn’t do awkward. He’s friendly and charming right off the bat. You’ll feel like you’ve known him for years. Being a writer himself, scripts just ‘speak to him’ and he intuitively knows what subtle nuances are required to bring them to life. His voice strikes the perfect balance between natural / genuine and corporate / professional. A highly sought after combo that’s about as rare as rocking horse poo. And he’s willing and able to quickly fine tune his read on the fly, however you like it. Nick is one of those guys who’s not satisfied leaving the booth until the job is 100% nailed. Then he’ll give you one more take, just to be sure. It doesn’t matter how shit the script is, Nick will help you sculpt it into a dolphin.

  4. Nick works live and often unscripted. He has redefined the role of an awards announcer keeping the 5,000+ live audience in the Sydney Super Dome and million+ viewers entertained throughout the three hour telecast.

    Stephen Tate, Head of Entertainment and Factual Programs, Network Ten, Australia

  5. Whenever we need a voice that can sit across three different radio brands and genres, we call Nick. He has the ability to make a read sound effortless and believable. Our clients love him.

    Gregg Sinclair - Sound Designer, Australian Radio Network

  6. Nick has a great resonant voice, he’s very flexible, and can do characters and accents. His voice is very natural sounding, and works across many genres.

    Not to mention he’s a pleasure to work with!
