Mike Hurley is someone you could have passed in the street and have no clue who he was. But hear his voice, and you’d more than likely know it instantly.
He was a living legend in the voiceover world; appeared on radio, television, countless adverts let alone all the corporate gigs he would have voiced too.
One of the things he was most well known for, was ‘the’ voice of Hovis; the deep gravelly Yorkshire accented ads. But the fact is, he could alter his voice in a heartbeat, and was so versatile it was almost ridiculous! He could go for bright and chirpy to sounding like an old man in a flash. A true professional, and an amazing talent.
Many years ago, there was even a documentary on him highlighting his career. It’s well worth a watch.
