Hannibal Hills has been a "performer" from the beginning. At school, he trained in acting and theater arts at Southampton College, and also received a diploma in television. Although he
performed in many stage plays (by Lorca, Brecht, Stoppard, Pinter, and, of course,
Shakespeare), he also helped produce original works, and soon found himself mostly in the
directing role. More recently, in March of 2020, he won the "Best Newcomer" award (no
small feat for this middle-aged guy!) as part of his regional media's annual theater
awards. In March of 2021, he was thrilled to receive three Independent Audiobook Award
nominations. Hannibal was also a top wedding and memorial celebrant, before he could no longer
fight the urge to leap into audiobook performance.
It's a supreme pleasure for Hannibal to bring good writing off the page and into the minds and hearts of listeners. As a professional narrator, he devotes himself to understanding a text, and giving a book life with his voice—in a way that creates true entertainment, enlightenment, or merely an escape. Hannibal's vocal style is warm, clear, and sophisticated, with a depth of emotion from connecting with each project he takes on. Although he specializes in dramatic fiction, especially involving complex plots and highly charged emotion, his nonfiction is performed in a way that brings the truth of the text to both the heart and mind of the reader.
