While John Lennon retreated into private life in 1975, he also fought a major legal battle that flew under the public radar. Mafia-connected Morris Levy, owner of Roulette Records, released Roots, an unauthorized version of a rock ’n’ roll oldies album John had been producing. Levy claimed the former Beatle had verbally agreed to market Roots via TV.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

Jude Southerland Kessler

Author, The John Lennon Series

"Scott, I started the audio book and it’s fascinating! Thank you so much! You do an excellent job with 1970s John! I listen to many Audible books and some narrators are just okay. You have done a superb job! I can’t wait to meet Jay in August at the Fest! His story is riveting!"

5-Star Review from Audible.co.uk

"Scott R. McKinley's narration was clear and well-paced. He didn't try to overshadow the story, but delivered it with calm respect. He has a soft American accent which will be comfortable for British listeners and his impression of John Lennon's voice and accent was spot on. He obviously worked hard getting that right and he deserves full praise for that."

Peter Kenny

Voice Over Artist, "The Witcher" Series

"...It sounds great, a nice measured tone, the voices apparent but not intrusive and just sufficient of a hint to capture a feel of the persona... (Particularly the Lennon). Some of your Judges and friends etc, I wasn't sure it was you speaking the timbre was so different. Excellent stuff."

5-Star Review from Audible.com

"...The great fascination for me was walking through John Lennon‘s mind and seeing how he creates music and then finally placing it gently and carefully within the vinyl that we all hear. Scott McKinley did a magnificent job narrating. Each character has a distinct voice and when listening to his ... Lennon, I actually thought I was listening to Mr. Lennon. Bravo to Mr. McKinley!"

About Me

I love doing voices.

 

I love the sound of a sentence carefully read, when the inflections settle in at just the right spots. I love performing in front of an audience, a class, a microphone, (even on phone calls)!

I’ve been known to throw in a dash or two of dialects for seasoning. I’ve been performing and recording books, stories, and trainings for twenty years or more. It’s been the best part of my work life. Voicework is my profession. I read record and produce audiobooks, and do voice overs for eLearning, web sites, commercials, PSAs, video games, animation.

 

You got a thing? Yeah; I can voice that.
