CASTING NOTES COMING SOON………
The stage is set and the lights are dim (It’s not the lead singer everyone is here to see). Then…..you hear it – the slow beat of the drums and the clashing cymbals (boom boom boom…..tish! ) – Ben Isackson has arrived on the voice scene.
In walks Ben. He’s got the swagger of a cool rockstar. Leather pants, wrist cuffs, chains. It’s 1am and he’s just finished his set on stage. Packing the musician gear away, and another side of Ben takes shape.
You know the saying….”but first coffee”? That’s Ben. Go on, sit down and have one with him. He can be the larrikin who has a joke for every conversation – but will also keep you on the straight and narrow as the voice of reason. A great conversationalist, Ben can see both sides of the story. The type of guy, who will always have your back. You want to be best friends with him – why?? Because your secrets will absolutely go in Ben’s vault. He’s the man to trust. Locked up tight.
Being on the music scene allows Ben to really know how to work his voice. He can drop the register low, get up close – and pull the listener in. A serious message, requires a serious Ben. Bring it up and it’s a younger, more excited Ben behind the mic. The latest TV promo you hear, has you setting an alarm for it. Enrolments for university have started – mark open day in your calendar. So really now, you’re technically “keeping up with Ben”.
That rockstar “too cool persona”, isn’t the Ben of “everyday”. He 100% a softie with a big heart. He’s not shy to show his emotions or cry while watching a tear-jerking movie. His sincerity can pull at all the heartstrings and show you his raw self. Ben doesn’t just make the dinner reservations – he’s pre-chilled the wine, and arranged a degustation of bite sized entrees for you.
So sit down and get comfy. Ben’s in the booth now, you have nothing to worry about.
Not too soft, not too firm – Felicity’s voice fits just right within that “middle ground”. Her voice has made it through the ravages of motherhood, managing a home, a family and a career – her voice stands the test of time, like a strong badge of honour.
In your twenties, you didn’t really think about being older. Sexy and graceful is the demographic Felicity now finds herself. Her voice is like the ultimate wardrobe basic – you know the one – the white t-shirt you’ve had for years in the wardrobe, and when you wear it, rock it like you bought it today. It’s the quality of the stitching – it’s stood the test of time just like her voice, but there’s really something about the cut of the neckline and the way the material just glides across the body, making you feel absolutely gorgeous. Felicity’s voice is familiarity personified.
It’s time to make a confession. We try on ridiculous lipstick when we’re around Felicity. Sometimes we go over the speed limit. Or eat the kids Halloween candy. Her personality is like a colourful, mischievous wink from across the room – she knows you’ve extended that professional blow dried hair now for a week *wink*
She’s a lady with her life in order. There is a secret satisfied look she gives herself when paying off the credit card balance before the due date. No shop-a-holics anonymous here. But if you do love a good purchase, then go and add Felicity straight to cart.
On a weekend run to the servo you fill up, wander inside to pay and grab a chocolate milk.
Coming back to the car, you lean on the bonnet taking in the afternoon’s view of nearby traffic. The suburbs stretch out in every heat filled direction. Red roofs, driveways and dogs.
Then you notice the guy beside you has a chocolate milk too. You give a half hearted cheers sign raising your bottle in his direction. The only difference is, that guy, Kieton Beilby, is the king of these streets and you’re just a passing visitor.
Kieton Bielby is the sultan of the suburbs. He’s as refreshing as a 7-11 slurpy, quick as a Macca’s drive thru fillet o fish and come Saturday Night, he’s the loudest shouting above the brand new EA game he’s kicking your butt with. Keiton delivers rapid fire insults with equal measure. As he delivers on his never give up promise of friendship to his mates made on the strength of a handshake years ago.
For writers, producers and clients Kieton is the man behind the wheel of the low and fast fully restored modified street car at the lights, he’s first in line at the motorcycle sale, he’s tried all your flavours of chips, drinks and burgers and he’s the last to leave the hospital when the doctor says his brother is not going to wake up.
Kieton isn’t just a young voice but a voice with authenticity and comes highly recommended from Scout Management.
