Celebrating AudioFile’s 2021 Golden Voice Narrators: Michael Crouch
Honoring Excellence in Audiobook Narration
Every Monday through Friday, AudioFile’s editors recommend the best in audiobook listening. We keep our daily episodes short and sweet, with audiobook clips to give you a sample of our featured listens.
AudioFile’s Robin Whitten and host Jo Reed discuss the remarkable vocal agility of narrator Michael Crouch, newly named one of AudioFile’s Golden Voice narrators. He is brilliant at helping listeners make an emotional connection with characters; he has a versatile voice, bringing stories to life with fluent accents, subtle shifts, and exceptional timing. Michael gives listeners a powerful bond with characters of any age, whether it’s capturing Simon’s voice in Becky Albertalli’s smash hit Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda or voicing Lydia Fitzgerald’s impactful and fascinating Lights All Night Long. Robin shares a sound sample from the latter and more thoughts on Michael’s skilled narrations. Look for Michael Crouch’s longform interview with Jo Reed on the podcast on June 11 and learn more about all of AudioFile’s Golden Voice narrators on their website.
