Kavesan Pillay is a professional voice over artist based in Durban, South Africa, with almost 6 years worth of experience both locally and globally – working on projects ranging from radio and TV commercials to corporate narrations, online explainer videos, on-hold messaging systems and corporate e-learning.
Starting out in the backroom of the campus radio station during his varsity days, Kavesan ignited his passion for voice over while creating several commercials and jingles for many radio shows over the course of his studies. As a Business Science graduate with Honours in Marketing from the University of Cape Town, and now serving as a corporate brand communications manager, Kavesan has a deep understanding of building and marketing a powerful brand. This allows him to bring not just creative thinking and communication skills to his performance as a voice actor, but also a strategic brand view to help interpret how a client’s message will best resonate with the intended target audience.
Some of the clients Kavesan has voiced campaigns for include:
East Coast Radio / Lotus FM / Builders Warehouse / Unilever / OMO / Glo / Scania / FNB / Momentum Multiply / Superspar / Discovery SA / Casio / Rewardsco / Zeagrahm Expeditions / CMA-CGM.
Kavesan’s vocal quality has been described as warm, friendly and compelling, while sometimes veering into the deeper and sexier tones, and yet possessing a pleasingly neutral, worldly sound. This versatile palette makes Kavesan the ideal artist for global projects that need anything from conversational and hard sell deliveries, to the authoritative and even the intimate. Besides his unique, natural speaking voice, Kavesan also has a penchant for pushing the boundaries of his vocal performances – taking pride in his many accents, impersonations, as well as original and quirky character voices.
