When Gyton popped his head into the world all those years ago, his parents decided to give him a name quite unlike any other. Gyton (pronounced guy-tn) has spent the last 30 years explaining to people how to pronounce this strange combination of letters and has recently discovered that it is a French surname. So the jshiton pronunciation has been getting quite a work out. Much better than gItn, or gAYton or gyNton or gRYton.
Either way being dealt such a peculiar title has given Gyton the ability to get his mouth around language and develop a love for the spoken word. Having started voice overs as an 18 year old while studying acting at QUT in Brisbane. Gyton has a wealth of experience. For the last ten years he has rocked the mics of Australia’s voice studios bringing smiles to the ears of many with his wholesome laidback tone.
