The voice behind THE MUSIC OF US

Today I have the pleasure of presenting the narrator of my novels, The Music of Us and Dancing with Air: Don Warrick. He has many faces; but even without the flair, the costumes, and the makeup that helps actors step into their role, he has a wonderfully versatile expression in his voice.


For the audition script I chose three segments, on e in the voice of a 'mature' Lenny, one in his 'young' voice, and one in the voice of Natasha, writing a long letter. I wanted to know that the narrator I will choose can hold the illusion of voicing a woman, not just in a quick exchange of dialogue but also in an extended monologue, because Natasha is a very special heroine to me. And then, the moment I heard Don's audition, I knew he was the one. Correction: he was all three!

Here is his short video, 'my life in five minutes':

    1. Just so Aaron, a wonderful voice (I should really say, voices!) And with each voice, he taps into a whole different array of emotions. Amazing!
