Austin Lee Matthews is a voice actor based in the Los Angeles area, best known for his work on video games, anime and cartoons. Primed and ready to roll out at any time, Austin is a powerhouse in the booth. He’s cast for his vocal power, massive range, endurance, ability to take direction, and kind, professional manner. Whether he’s in the studio or recording from his home setup, voice over is Austin’s home, and he treats every role with the respect and love that one should show their own home. Austin’s voice can be heard as Roche in Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Cid in Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon: Every Buddy, Ash Carbide in the Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel series, Xander Shakadera in Beyblade: Burst Turbo, Jun Kiwatari in Kakegurui, Ultron and Frank West in Screw Attack and Rooster Teeth’s Death Battle, Demon King Jester in Cyberdimension Neptunia; 4GO, and tons more.
Since his start in 2009, Austin has gone on to the AX Idol finals in 2011 and being the first callback of the year for the Anime Expo open auditions in 2014. Austin is a Cal State University Fullerton graduate with a degree in Radio TV and Film. His primary educational focuses were in sound design and screenplay writing. He has taken many voice acting classes and workshops, and has received high praise from teacher and client alike. When he is not screaming in front of a microphone, Austin spends his free time composing music, playing video games and D&D, and writing radio plays. And also probably still screaming in front of a microphone, because let’s face it. That’s pretty dang fun, too.
“Austin is certainly one of the funniest and most creative voice actors I’ve worked with. You give him some direction on his role and he’ll run with it until he can’t run anymore; then he’ll run even further!”
-Joshua Goring, Spacecat Studios
“You only have to listen to understand the vocal diversity of Austin Matthews. While we usually employ him as an “announcer,” he still manages to vary style and delivery to suit the client’s copy. Austin is not a one read repertoire, that’s why he is requested so frequently. Listen and you’ll understand why I have no hesitation in recommending Austin for your project.”
-Neil Holmes, Voice Creative
“Austin is a man of many voices, and has an uncanny ability to create snappy (and hilarious) banter between two distinct characters for our ad campaign. His fast turn-around and professional manner was a bonus to boot. Highly recommended.”
-Dan Rutledge, Right Idea Media & Creative
“Perfect! Thanks so much to Austin for working fast with us. Brilliant guy.”
