David Legge is one of the most versatile voices in the Australian voiceover industry.
Since the mid-eighties, he has been providing a myriad of voices for any, and every form of voice recording imaginable.
Retail and corporate TV and radio, corporate in-house audio and visual, phone messaging, feature film post syncing…he’s done it all; not to mention over 80 different character voices.
If it’s not on his demo, just ask.
It all started from a very unusual source.
Back in the day, David played a few seasons of football with the St. Kilda Football club. A grand total of 3 senior games (it’s a very short highlights reel) and about 50 games in the AFL reserves for the Saints too.
It was there that he realized he could impersonate quite a few characters, while trying to make his footy mates laugh.
Every time there was a player function, David would be pushed up in front of the crowd to entertain. He says it extended his time at the Saints by about 2 seasons!
A supporter who was in advertising, advised him to get a demo together and jump into the voiceover business and since the mid 80’s he’s been one of the most prolific voice over talents in Australia.Creating voices for ad campaigns or getting the right voice sound for a corporate presentation is something he never tires at doing. He recalls one time when his kids asked him what he did today he said “well, this morning I was a tomato, then this afternoon I was a car tyre, then I was an engineer discussing oil pump options on an off shore oil rig! "
Some of the campaigns David has worked on include Coles, Toyota, Target, Hewlett Packard, BP, National Bank, Funtastic Toys, just to name a few.
His easygoing nature makes him easy to direct, and he has a home studio, which produces a quality sound.
David has hundreds of vocal style and character voices. Click below to hear samples.
