Audiobook Narrator - Michel Young


As previously posted, I'm turning my novel, Imaginary Me, into an audiobook to shout my book from the rooftops! Of course, I want to do whatever I can to make sure the “shouting” isn’t annoying and is actually more like signing. Yes, I want my audiobook to be music to your ears, only without the music (maybe) and singing (again maybe)!

I'm happy to say that I have picked someone. Who is it? Well, that'll come in a future blog post. But for now, I will let you know who my top auditions were! Complete with an audition sample!

This week, I'm highlighting the top three auditions I received. All of these individuals could have narrated the book and I would've been happy. They were able to bring what I wrote to life and it was amazing to hear their interpretation of my story in just the little snippets I gave them to read.

In no particular order, this second audition I'd like to present to you is from Michel Young. His audition was fantastic! He managed to capture the feel of the characters close to how I imagined in my head. And his audio quality is nice too, having a little bass to the tone that I enjoy when listening to audiobooks. Below is some detail about Mr. Young along with a partial recording of his audition.


Narrator: Michel Young

Bio: 
The bass baritone of Michel Young catches the listener’s ear with its rich, resonant tone. Like a fine French Roast, Michel’s work is full-bodied and sophisticated with subtle hints of the sardonic.

An expert at navigating the challenges of the “dry” commercial read, Michel’s range extends to intoning PSA’s with just the right soup├žon of both empathy and command.

He is also a master of the promotional copy read, having provided the voice for Inside Empire on Fox. His warm, engaging tones invite the listener into the corporate world while both documentary and instructional copy benefit from his affable manner of expression: to wit, the narration provided to Open-Xchange training videos.

Witty and urbane, complex and refined, Michel Young’s quiet confidence exudes class and approachability.
