    Rik sets a rare standard.

    Super-fast turnaround, diligent, utterly lovely at every step. Nails it every time. Versatile too. Rik is a talented human being for sure. At time of writing there are reviews here from BBC H&W, Bauer and Chris Birks and I must say I concur with everything said. If Rik sounds close to your requirements give him a shot.

    POWERFUL AUTHORITY

    We’ve used Rik for as long as I can remember and he never fails to come up with just the right tone and voice. He can be the authority behind urgent news/information trails,or the 1940’s Pathe announcer we asked him to be for a “tea dance’ promotion.. He is a skilled professional capable of whatever you want. Always good humoured and has a fast turnaround.I’d have no hesitation to recommend him

    Excellent voice-over artist, quick delivery, and multi-faceted

    We’ve used Rik since I joined the station. His voice sits excellently as our station voice – powerful and strong for our Top of Hour imaging – but his tracks are very versatile, which have led us to use him to voice a number of different programmes and trails.
    His pacing and strength of delivery come in to their own when it comes to sport trails, or situations where we want our imaging to sound dramatic. Rik’s versatility, however, is also evident when he voices other items of audio for us, such as our Sunday breakfast show, which is gentler, calmer but still strong – or for when we’ve asked for his voice to sound like he’s having fun, such as our running gag in our Hereford Marathon trail.!

    Amazing VO

    I first started working with Rik when I was head of production for Guardian Media’s Real Radio Network and he was so good that when I moved to Bauer Media……..I took him with me. He’s a true professional, polite, courteous and an exceptionally good voice over. He’s always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

    The Ultimate VO!

    Rik’s voice stands out a mile; it’s instantly recognisable. He is by far the most reliable artist I work with and takes direction really well. If you’re looking for a warm, commanding and attention grabbing VO for your project then look no further than Rik.
