Damian Nicholas uses his voice virtually every day of his life.
Born just north of Manchester in the UK (so yes, he can do the accent if need be), Damian fell into the world of media at an early age. Making the permanent move to Melbourne in ‘93 and working as a spruiker in shopping centres, Damian honed his skills with a microphone and warmly welcomed the advances of many a poorly-educated heckler.
He’s hosted plenty of concerts and instore appearances for authors, TV and music stars as diverse as Andre Rieu, the cast of ‘Glee’, The Wiggles, Dannii Minogue and Elmo and was invited by Granada producers to be the audience-warm up man for what to this date remains the highest-rating season of Dancing With The Stars (7 Network).
In 2007, Damian made his on-screen TV debut, co-hosting ‘The Scene’, shown nationally on the Nine Network.
He’s now a man of many voices. Actually many, many voices. Damian has lent that voice to Red Rooster’s national TV campaigns, his face to a totally erotic Autobarn commercial, and more voice to radio spots for Moonee Valley Racing, Easy Living Furniture, George Foreman and Russell Hobbs. Though he knows very little about the sport itself, apart from the odd case of dribbling, he also provides his vocal services to FIBA World Basketball, narrating the weekly half-hour TV show aired in more than 160 countries (ESPN in Australia).
More recently, his voice has been found on campaigns for Crazy John’s, Metricon, Billy Hyde Music, Disney, Kia Soul Live At The Chapel, Telstra Next G, Toyota and Pitos. And in 2009, Damian’s was chosen as the first ever voice of Aussie icon Caramello Koala in the online adventures of Freddo (freddo.com.au). Damian Nicholas possesses an extraordinary range of character voices, a love of making people laugh and, on occasion, will travel to exotic locations with seemingly dirty names such as Pakenham Upper.
