New Zealand, Australian and UK voice artist
My business partner and I had the pleasure of working with Toby Ricketts on our 5-part documentary series for CuriosityStream. To say we were creatively invested in the series is an understatement; we had directed every scene and written every line in each of the 5 scripts. It goes without saying, we knew that finding the perfect narrator for our series was key to giving our story a voice. Toby was that voice. Until we heard him utter those first few lines, we didn’t know exactly what the show would “sound like.” With Toby’s incredibly rich voice, his ability to vacillate between serious tones and dry wit, not to mention his ability to nail the timing and intonation of every take almost immediately, we soon found ourselves with a beautifully narrated series thanks in huge part to Toby. Toby is not only a professional of the first-class, he is flexible and fun to work with. He takes direction well but also offers really good ideas for fun/interesting ways to read certain lines. It was a pleasure working with Toby and we look forward to using his incredible talents in our next series.
I think I never was so satisfied with an voice actor before. Normally, many voice actors have good voices, good recording equipment and so on, but I’m almost always missing this special “spark”. A voice actor who not only reads the text out loud in a microfon, but really feels the message behind it and is able to transport authentic emotions.
Toby! Wow. I’m so impressed. Your voice is like butter. This is gorgeous. I will put this to music and send to the client for review to see if we need additional takes of anything, but I practically have goosebumps. How much would it cost for you to narrate my daily life?“Jason opted for a trip to the gym instead of the fast food restaurant today...”Thank you so much for doing an amazing job.
Amazing job! Thank you so much. Super quick. Great sounding voice. Identified and corrected issues with the script that we didn’t notice. Went above and beyond.
Fantastic! Toby is an exceptionally talented choice for voice over work. Move over Mathew Goode, Toby is replacing you.
Toby is both talented AND extremely professional. Quick response times, amazing quality, and very knowledgable in his craft. We will be working with him again and recommend him to anyone looking for an amazing voice actor and audio professional.

Wow! I’m blown away. Toby delivered my voiceover with incredible speed, and it sounded great. He was fantastic to work with, and truly seemed to “get” our project. He embraced the spirit of the piece, and it really set his work above the rest. I would recommend him with enthusiasm!
Toby is fantastic! He took my brief and executed it perfectly first time. The quality of his voice really adds value to any project and I will definitely be working with him again soon.
Absolute champion! Quick, reliable and the quality of work is amazing.
We worked with Toby on a national New Zealand campaign for Car Take Back and were so impressed with his work, we signed him straight up to our own voice bank. Maple Street Studios are very excited to work with Toby on numerous jobs in the future. A great voice and an impressively speedy turnover make for a very happy production company!
