Matt Black

(British Voice Over Artist/ Professional Pianist & Singer)
 

For most of Matt’s life he has entertained crowds with his piano music, but as time went on the anecdotes and jokes between the songs became a bigger part of his act, until one day he was hired as ‘a comedian (that also plays the piano)’ – after that heart stopping moment, the world was his stage, and he has worked with true entertainment giants such as Elton John, Tom O’Connor, The Supremes, Boy George, Richard Digance, and a host of other stars.

Matt is a record producer, accomplished pianist and a comedian (yes he really is!). He has been in the professional music industry for almost 30 years.

All this is due to the fact that Matt can adapt seamlessly into almost any situation and audience, using his voice, his sense of humour, and his music to cause chaos.

In later years Matt developed his own recording studio “Hangover Hill” (don’t ask!) and that has become extremely successful, with singers, poets, and musicians all respecting Matt’s production ethos, and attention to detail with their recordings. This in turn led him to meet ‘Lyrics’ (Tanya S Bartlett) and the world of voiceovers.That brings us to today, and the idea that top quality voiceovers need not be about jumping through hoops to get what you want. It can be as easy as contacting British Voice Over UK, and talking to us real people.
