I am newly breaking into the voice artist/audiobook industry as a narrator, with 5 years of experience performing on stage with local community musical theater groups. At baseline, I offer an articulate, natural, American-style deep to mid-range male voice. However, I am also very comfortable with different vocal styles and accents, and can switch between different voices at will as needed. Thus, whether your project requires the voicing of several varying characters or relies on the strength and clarity of one voice throughout, you are in good hands with me.

"Brian Knutson's characterization of Harry Bright is perhaps the most complex of the three prospective fathers. It's not at all unusual for youthful musicians to turn to more stable occupations when the time comes for them to settle down, but Harry's situation is much more nuanced, and is revealed gradually by a combination of dialogue and Knutson's subtle inflections of same. Also, Knutson does a fine job of playing the guitar." -- Charles Calabrese, "BROOKE HILLS' MAMMA MIA!: WHO NEEDS MERYL STREEP?", Calabrese Reviews (calabresereviews.com), July 6, 2019.
