DEMO 1 – feminine, late 20’s, Scottish accent (ideally city – for instance, Edinburgh) – impulsive, tired, strongwilled, weathered

1. (impressed) “Aye, that’s a big catch, that one.”
2. (worried) “The shadows on the waves… they grow long and fierce.”
3. (frustrated) “C’mere, you bastard.”
4. (tired) “Day in, day out, toiling for naught… time to head to the wharf again.”

DEMO 2 – masculine, late 30’s – early 40’s, Scandinavian accent – gruff, wise, suspicious

1. (sympathetic) “You seem tired. Long day on the water?”
2. (intrigued) “What do you have for me today?”
3. (smug) “A woman’s heart is a deep ocean of secrets.”
4. (matter-of-fact) “Some go to church and think about fishing, others… well, you know the rest.”

DEMO 3 – masculine voice, any adult age, ideally Northern Scottish accent – working class (feel free to experiment with tone/character)

1. (suspicious) “I don’t ken your face… you’re not from around here, are you?”
2. (concerned) “Aye, looks a bit heavy. Do you need a hand with that?”
3. (disbelieving) “You’re off your head, lass.”
4. (interested) “What’s the craic, love?”

DEMO 4 – feminine voice, any adult age, ideally Northern Scottish accent – working class (feel free to experiment with tone/character)

1. (disapproving) “It ain’t proper, a lady like yourself.”
2. (concerned) “Are your bairns keeping well?”
3. (judging) “All that hard work… you’ll ruin your soft hands, you will.”
4. (interested) “How are you fitting in here?”
