Steven Marriott Bio
While his friends were contemplating future careers as doctors, accountants and teachers, Steven Marriott spent his high school days watching cartoons- I mean... researching a career as a voice actor. He attended animation voice over classes led by reputed voice over, Trevor Devall, after school hours where he got hands on training at various studios around Vancouver doing both pre-lay and ADR. Following this, he enrolled in the Acting for Stage and Screen (ASAS) program at Capilano University to further his training. It was at this point that Steven realized that he was quite content to leave his physical presence on the sidelines and focus on bringing his voice out to its full potential.
Branching out, his love of music lead him down a different path of studio time, and Steven found himself recording audio tracks for several years. Through this, he gained an understanding and appreciation for tracking and mixing to bring out the best quality product possible. With three EPs and several singles under his belt, he decided it was time to finally focus on his childhood dream, and put his voice to use on an animated level again.
After spending some weekends researching- I mean... watching cartoons, Steven began attending classes at On The Mic Studios. He has studied and practiced the animation side of voice acting under Gabe Khouth, Michael Adamthwaite, Lee Tockar (winner of Best Voice of 2016 at the UBCP/ACTRA awards) and Vincent Tong (nominated for Best Voice of 2016 at the UBCP/ACTRA awards). He also has pre-lay experience, working with Vancouver Voice Director, Karl Willems. In March of 2017, Steven recorded his animation demo at Kozmic Studios with Matt Smalley, directed by Vincent Tong.
In March of 2018, Steven signed with Principals Talent Agency in Vancouver. Amidst auditions and roles, Steven began to develop his commercial voice as well, training under such reputable voice actors as Noel Johansen and Bill Mondy. He is currently polishing his commercial and narration demo scripts before recording them.
While much of his free time is spent practicing and developing new voices, Steven has also built a home studio to allow him the flexibility to record and audition from the comfort of his home. In July of 2018, Steven’s webseries, ‘Pantry TV' was released into the world to rave reviews. And so, that brings us to the here and now, where Steven is wide eyed, motivated, and keen to take on the world one voice at a time.
