Who Is The Voice Of UK’s Big Players?
So you certainly have heard this voice, in fact he’s not just prominent in the UK, he has provided voices for Fox, Channel V Australia, Studio 23 and MYX in the Philippines, Walt Disney and Sony among others.
But despite his popularity, you’ll find the guy behind this voice very “sweet”.
May I present you, Rich Sweetman. Rich has worked with many of the big players in the UK, like XFM, BBC Radio 6 Music, Heat Radio, and BRMB.
So who is the Sweetman?
Rich’s media career began by gaining a Degree in Film, Radio and Television studies…
He has worked as an award winning producer for several radio groups, so is highly experienced in giving and taking direction, and working closely with clients and agencies.
Vocally, Rich’s tone encapsulates cool, credible and contemporary. He is unique in that he sounds gravelly and distinctive, and has the rare talent of sounding authentic and real. Edgy enough to cut through the airwaves, Rich possesses a “now” voice, that’s totally fresh and dynamic. Rich can be heard on the radio and on television throughout the UK, and around the world. A cracking guy, composed and confident, he’s great in a session and great with customers.
Outside of his career, Rich is a keen snooker player, and captains a team in a North West League. Prior to that, he used to play tennis for the county, but felt it was time to move on to smaller balls. He is also mad about quizzes, facts, and trivia, so can usually be found at a pub quiz, or propping up a quiz machine. He’s used to being behind a mic, as he ran “Rich’s Great Fun Quiz” at a local pub for 5 years! That’s 40 questions per week, around 50 weeks a year, for 5 years – that’s a lot of knowledge (most of it useless!).
Over the years, he has often taken his Quiz on tour to commercial business corporate events, and media do’s, as well as the now infamous ‘Des Lennis’ Family Fortunes Funtime!’.
Aside from those stations and companies mentioned earlier, Rich has done voices for TV stations in virtually every continent of the planet.
