About Rowell Gormon
Rowell Gormon – “the Non-Announcerish Announcer”
Rowell (conveniently rhymes with “role”) is “the Man of 999 ½ Voices”, equally at home doing a relaxed guy-next-door read in one session, a convincing businessman or senior citizen in the next, and then voice a talking toy robot lizard, or a stuffy English butler, or an animated light bulb…all before lunch!
He’s been a no-nonsense narrator for clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Citigroup, Carquest, Home Depot, and Disney i.d.e.a.s. He’s done “down home” type narrations for Farm Bureau and Pfizer. He’s been a throwback “voice of doom” newsreel announcer for Sealy, a “Don Pardo” type for Burger King, a spooky storyteller for Frito-Lay. He’s been a grouchy old penguin for Ingles, a cute little star for Wake Med, a French-accented islander for Disney Cruise Lines, an irascible Germ for Sonic Drive-Ins, and a quirky cultured storyteller for the Utah Symphony. He’s taught people how to repair Schindler escalators, acted as recorded tour guide for the Vanderbuilt summer mansion in Newport, and introduced the Lego/Star Wars “Quest for R2-D2”.
His home studio is a museum of radio/tv/animation and film history.
Many people are lucky to have a “second childhood”. Rowell is beginning his sixth.
