BIOGRAPHY

Nick caught the VO bug in the 80’s as a rookie radio DJ and journalist when he was spinning 45’s by Kids in the Kitchen, Wham and U2.  Voicing and making commercials was a part of the gig and so reading stuff kind of stuck. Although he’s also had oodles of time in front of the camera, Nick is moved by sound. The nuances of tone, timbre and timing fascinate him and there is little that he has not put his voice to. You may know Nick as, “That guy from the ARIA Awards!”

REVIEWS

  1. We were searching for a host for our annual STAR Employee Awards event. As an employment and disability service provider, we were looking for a warm, friendly and experienced host who could bring to life our awards within an exciting online platform. Nick handled the script, new platform and technology, live crosses and interviews brilliantly, bringing a mix of both humour and humanity to the awards. He was patient and professional, generous of spirit and many of my colleagues commented on how wonderful Nick was as a host. I would engage with Nick again in a heartbeat.

  2. Looking for options to present to client, Nick appeared as the ‘In the Spotlight’ feature artist on the RMK landing page. Nick has an accessible warmth to his voice which is why we ended up working with him on our campaign.
    An absolute pleasure to work with, Nick is easy to direct and offers up alternative suggestions – it was finally his suggested approach that made the cut. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Nick – a consummate professional and a really nice person.

  3. Nick was a fantastic host for our 4 part podcast series we recorded with him. He is an adaptive and empathetic interviewer, which made for really engaging and informative pieces. Nick was comfortable with the research element and working off script. He showed great professionalism throughout the process. Was a pleasure to work with!

  4. Nick is always a real pleasure to work with. He’s highly professional, generous with his time and always goes above and beyond to deliver a read that is spot on for our requirements.

  5. Working with Nick as narrator for an audiobook version of our novel was a wonderful experience. We chose Nick because his voice is so loaded with empathy and warmth, and because he appeals to both male and female listeners alike. Because our novel will be released internationally, we were also looking for a ‘mid-Pacific’ read, something not overtly Australian but neutral enough to appeal to Brits and Americans alike. Nick was able to strike the perfect balance. I don’t think we would could have found a better fit.
    He also has his own professional recording facilities at home in the way of
    ‘Studio Beatnick’ which made the whole process such a manageable, easy and enjoyable way to compile our audiobook. We’ll be working with Nick again.

  6. After many years I recently reacquainted myself with the voice of Nick Bennett and I immediately remembered what a great voice it is. Nick has a tremendous range and can instantly perfect the style and tone required in a script. Plus, Nick is super friendly and great to work with.

  7. Hats off to Nick for making the recording session so straight forward and enjoyable. This was my client’s first voiceover and she couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Nick delivered exactly as required – and not satisfied with anything less than perfect he persisted with takes until he was 100% happy. The end result was spot on. Highly recommend Nick, great to work with.

  8. Across an intensive 5-day rural & remote commercial production schedule Nick was truly great to work with. Going above & beyond with production requirements, presenter feedback, & a demanding shot list, he added both creativity in front of the camera & a helping hand on-set for our small crew. We had an absolute blast collaborating with Nick throughout the entire production; Looking forward to the next one.

  11. Whenever we need a voice that can sit across three different radio brands and genres, we call Nick. He has the ability to make a read sound effortless and believable. Our clients love him.

  12. Nick works live and often unscripted. He has redefined the role of an awards announcer keeping the 5,000+ live audience in the Sydney Super Dome and million+ viewers entertained throughout the three hour telecast.

  13. Is it getting hot in here? No … that’s just the warmth coming from Nick Bennett during a recording session. Nick doesn’t do awkward. He’s friendly and charming right off the bat. You’ll feel like you’ve known him for years. Being a writer himself, scripts just ‘speak to him’ and he intuitively knows what subtle nuances are required to bring them to life. His voice strikes the perfect balance between natural / genuine and corporate / professional. A highly sought after combo that’s about as rare as rocking horse poo. And he’s willing and able to quickly fine tune his read on the fly, however you like it. Nick is one of those guys who’s not satisfied leaving the booth until the job is 100% nailed. Then he’ll give you one more take, just to be sure. It doesn’t matter how shit the script is, Nick will help you sculpt it into a dolphin.
