Johnathan Rufus Welsh

Voice Over Artist


Hello and Welcome

Hello and Welcome to my website. My name is Johnathan Rufus Welsh and I am an Audiobook Narrator and a Voice Over Artist. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and how I came into this Wonderful Industry. I was born in the British Military Hospital in Gibraltar to an English Father, a Yorkshireman and a Spanish Mother from Lucena, Southern Spain. My formative years were spent in Germany, until my parents went to live in Hong Kong in the Far East. I was then put in boarding school in Ramsgate, Kent, England, where I remained until I left, when I was 18.

After a career in Psychiatric nursing and as a Cognitive Behavioural therapist involving a lot of talking, I embarked initially on trying my hand at voice over. Having been told for years that my deep voice might suit voice over or audiobook narration, I began in late 2018.

With some success in voice over, I turned to audiobook narration which has become my passion. To date, January 2022, I have narrated with Tantor Media and independent writers. I particularly enjoy non-fiction and as such I have been coached by the inimitable Sean Pratt. I also continue to produce voice overs. I am married and live near Belfast Northern Ireland.

On a lighter note, whilst recording a gospel singing album in Atlanta USA, my producer commented, “Man you sound like a tug boat.” And my wife often calls me “the fog horn.”

    Johnathan Welsh is great at what he does! He strives to capture the heart of the author, and as a professional, relates the same to the listener, in a style peculiar to him.

    – Afolarin Ogunyinka

    The narrator brought the book to life! Johnathan was easy to work with, and I am not sure I could have been more satisfied with how it turned out on his part!

    – Jesse Frazel

    Johnathan did an amazing job on my books. His voice is masculine and soft and energetic at once. I’m new to audiobooks but he helped guide me through the process and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome. He was a pleasure to work with and I will use him again.

    – Adam Moon

    When Johnathan approached me about recording a book of my stories, I didn’t know what to expect but I found I really enjoyed listening to his work. He showed great commitment to the project and completed it to a high technical standard.

    – Lynda Neilands

    Johnathan Welsh is a narrator with a difference. His work is professional, and he delivered right on time, with excellence, and when I needed any changes done, he responded aptly. I was so pleased with his work, I recommended him to my husband, and he did not disappoint.
