NICK COADY - a big man with a big voice, and well known on UK TV
A member of British Equity, he has over thirty years'
experience as a professional voice-over artist narrator and producer, and
even has his own recording studios.
Nick's enormous voice packs an
awesome punch. At one end of the scale he's perfect for deep, hard,
'rock n roll' power-reads; at the other, his warm whispering sensuous read
always raises a few temperatures and pulse rates... He can
sound friendly, reassuring and ‘corporate’, or un-nerve the listener with
a cold, threatening, terse delivery they won't forget in a hurry, and all
shades in between.
He has worked for virtually all the UK's
principal radio and TV networks and many global broadcasters too,
including CNN, BBC TV, UKTV, BBC Radios 1 2 and
6 Music, Absolute Radio, the Real XS network, Classic FM, Five and
ITV. He is experienced in voicing to picture for TV and
cinema commercials, and has been the deep, gravelly voice of countless
Nick is also a respected corporate voice, and has
narrated hundreds of audio-visual programmes and presentations for both
public and private sectors. He has been heard on thousands of
interactive voice-prompts for company on-hold telephone systems and call
centres. From staff training and point-of-sale videos, to medical
CD-ROMs, scientific documentaries and even relaxation tapes... Nick
has the calm, authoritative tone needed to get the message
In his own studios, Nick's characteristic big vocal sound
is achieved with two recording-industry favourites: a Neumann U87Ai
microphone and a Focusrite Red 7 mic pre. Recording & editing is
all done digitally on a Mac-based Pro Tools system. Nick can either work live via ISDN
(codec is a CCS Prima 120), Source Connect, ipDTL, or via a phone-patch where
the finished audio can be supplied as WAV/AIF/mp3 files via the Internet or
mastered onto CD/DVD/Blu-ray.
Nick loves animals and wildlife, motorcycling, amateur radio, photography, reading,
travel, aviation, politics and current affairs, history, technology and
science. He rides an
R1200GS Adventure, he holds a Private Pilot’s Licence, and he loves touring
round Germany and the Swiss Alps.
