Meet the voiceovers

We’re Emma Thurston and Colin Day – we share a studio, this website… everything!

From our cool and groovy studio we give voice to projects for companies large and small, worldwide.

Some clients choose to team us up, but you can book one of us or both. Easy.

Between us, we’ve more than 40 years full-time voiceover experience. That’s an awful lot of terms and conditions apply. But we’re still learning every day and loving it more than ever.

Emma Thurston


I was born in Surrey; trained at Elmhurst, but my dance career was painfully short. Went backstage. In 2006 did a voiceover by accident and about 18 months later found myself doing v/o full-time.

I enjoy all kinds of voiceover work and I’ve been lucky enough to voice TV and radio commercials for some incredible brands, but if pushed, I’d say narration is my favourite genre. I like a nice long script to get my teeth into!

The Work
It’s sometimes a challenge, especially the highly technical stuff, but it’s amazing how much knowledge you pick up along the way and I get real a buzz from telling a compelling story. Good preparation really helps, so my working motto is “fail to prepare, prepare to fail.”

My picky partner
Working with Colin? Well, yes he’s a picky perfectionist with ears like a cat and though he likes to think he’s in charge, a quick slap soon puts him in his place! Seriously, he’s a great support and my best working buddy. Makes a nice cuppa too, though not nearly as often as he should!

Colin Day


My background was radio. Landed my first on-air gig at Radio Wyvern in 1982 and that’s when I started doing the odd v/o part-time.

Radio days
Radio consumed me for a while, but in 1986 I joined Central TV doing live continuity announcing. That led to a lot more v/o work and before long I was a full-time voiceover travelling the country with a Filofax, a strange haircut and a mobile phone the size of a bungalow…

Home studio
Built my first studio at home in 1990 and I started a “voice-overnight” service. No internet back then. The work went out by courier, often on quarter inch tape. I don’t miss editing with a razor blade, that’s for sure.

Fast forward a decade or so…
Met Emma in 2005 and we began working together almost right away. Wedding bells rang out in 2008 and we formally launched our company Thurston Day Ltd soon after. Obviously I’m her biggest fan and completely in awe of her talent, but don’t tell her will you?
More than 30 years since my v/o debut, I can honestly say I’m learning more now than ever before. Staying relevant is obviously key and things move very quickly. Every day brings a new challenge and I couldn’t enjoy it more.
