Whey aye, I’m gannin’ to be propa Geordie

Geordie Lost Voice GuyI'm delighted to announce that my search for a Geordie accent for my iPad has been a success. And I'd like to say a big thank you to voice over artist, Dan Pye, for lending me his voice!

In my search to find the perfect Geordie accent, I have spent the last month listening to almost 500 potential donors from across the Newcastle area. They were each asked to read a short extract from my book, I’m Only In It For The Parking.  I then listened to each entry in turn in order to select the voice that I felt best suited myself.

I was overwhelmed by the response from my fellow Geordies, and it made the job of choosing the right voice very difficult. And I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to send a recording of their voice.

But, in the end, Dan’s voice was the one that I kept coming back too and listening to over and over again. I just thought it sounded quite upbeat and friendly. Which is definitely an advantage when you’re a comedian. But I also thought it sounded similar to my family as well. my family are from Consett in County Durham, so I’d like to sound as close as I can to that. And I think that Dan's voice fits the bill perfectly. Thankfully, my family agreed with my choice too.

I can’t wait to get started on the project with Dan and CereProc, and I look forward to you all hearing my new Geordie accent soon.

And, if you can't wait that long, here's Dan reading an extract from my book....
