“Where shall I begin, please your Majesty?” he asked. “Begin at the beginning,” the King said gravely, “and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”

What is your brand without a voice, your audio book without characters or your commercial without a heart?

As a certified voice-actor, I breathe life into your text and shape the world you want to sketch. Every project is an adventure, a journey through Wonderland where everything is possible and the “impossible” has been banned. 

Commercial, creative, casual or serious –  I tackle any voice challenge you may have in store for me.
My timbre or “vocal colour” is described as warm, friendly, and upbeat. But I pack enough flexibility to act out the exact emotion your text needs.

Some of the projects I have done include:

  • Audiobooks
  • Audio plays
  • Dubbing
  • Voice-overs and commenting
  • Advertisements

The career of PJ Martin – a Voyage of Voices

I’ve always been a lover of language, which made me want to train my voice, which then led me to the Speech Academy Switzerland. You’ll hear and feel my fondness for theatre, games and improvisation in my work – or I should rather say “play”. As much seriousness or lightness as the act requires, with a splash of madness, that is what you can expect of me in every project I do.

This is my voice menu:

  • English: British RP, Northern UK
  • German: neutral German (Bühnendeutsch), Austrian, Schwitzerdütsch with “Ostschweizer Farbe”
  • French: Swiss-French regional accent

What do these sound like? Listen to the voice reels, or just contact me and find out.

What do others say?

Paula-Jane Martin is the person I call when it comes to the most demanding dubbing and voice-over requests. I don’t know anyone else who can simultaneously read a script, listen to it and translate the original voice into German, English and French according to its tone and rhythm. I don't believe in mutants, but if I ever change my mind, Paula Jane Martin is probably at least partially responsible.
