The Walrus of Lurve
Listen...we are not all blessed with the creamy smooth tones of a Barry White, some of us may sometimes sound more like a Bob Dylan forced through a cheese grater...but tell you what...I'd rather listen to John Hurt listing the telephone directory than Don LaFontaine (Look him up you'll know him!) reading the Lord of the Rings...tell that story and worry not about your tone...your tone is you! Your tone is what makes you different to all the others... your tone is why you got the gig.
(Note to self today as I listen and re-do nearly every bloody sentence because I don't like my tone!)
