For Pierre’s biography, these attributes instantly spring to mind: deep, manly, rich, authoritative, convincing, commanding, gravelly, cavernous, booming, smoky, husky, raspy, gritty, tough, rough, gruff, hard, action hero-like…
But also these, less obvious and yet an intrinsic, important part of his body of work: genuine, gentle, caring, warm, sexy, velvety, smooth, softly spoken and suave, classy, sophisticated, groovy, current, trendy…

He switches effortlessly from a rich, strong, authoritative, commanding voice to lighter, cooler, softer, more intimate tones. To check this out just listen to his voice over audio reels, commercials, promos etc.
