VCCP Kin Takes a Stand Against Impossible Vocal Standards with 'Ugly Voices'

In a world of auto tune and RP Robot voiceovers, everyday people are constantly faced with examples of unnatural and unattainable vocal clarity. 

Ugly Voices intends to change this by shining a light on untapped talent with the first ever voice over agency for real people.

By taking a stand against unrealistic cookie cutter voice-overs, Ugly Voices celebrates every cough, stumble, mumble and slur: real, authentic voice talent. 

Take, for example, Terry McCartney whose accents span Liverpudlian, Scouse and Smoking’ or Arabella Umberella “who has an uncanny knack of turning any script into an unintelligible, slurry mush of poshness”, just two of the many voiceover artists on Ugly Voice’s books. 

It’s about time voiceovers caught up with the rest of the world and started using real voices for real adverts; after all, beauty is in the ear of the beholder. 

Check out their website and Twitter account to hear for yourself.

Oh, and happy belated April Fools’!
