Christian Black has been an audiobook narrator for over 2 years with 40+ titles. As a stage/theatre actor of nearly 20 years, along with a few years of commerical voice over work, he brings elements of both to the art of storytelling.
His experience in interpreting an author's text allows him to intuitively bring characters to life in a natural and realistic way. His dynamic vocal range allows him to transition between masculine and feminine genders with ease, as well as voice a multitude of different characters varying in age and accent.
Along with this vocal versatility, he brings a passionate and vibrant energy to his performance, with a voice often described as commanding, sensual and virile.
Christian's passion for bringing stories and characters to life is one he'd love to share with you! If you're an author or publisher interested in having a book reach a wider audience through audio, please reach out by contacting him below.
He often narrates alongside his wife and fellow audiobook narrator, Laurie West! If you're looking for a female narrator as well, visit her site here!

"Laurie West, Christian Black dual narration was the perfect cast to perform this story. The story is character driven and Laurie and Christian brought out the characters edginess and personalities. Laurie's inflection is sweet and Christian's deep baritone matches perfectly with Laurie's intonation bringing the story and the characters to reality."

"Laurie West and Christian Black were the perfect cast to bring these characters and their story to life. They did an awesome job portraying the characters, humanizing them, giving each their own distinct voice and personality. I loved how they took each role and made it their own sounding believable and just as I picture the character to sound. You could hear how much heart they put into their work as they capture the characters emotions and project them into their performance. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to."

"Nolan is a tough character, as he hides his emotions. Black brings it all out and lets us feel him, even when he is hiding. The nuances are there for us to feel it."
