BJ Harrison

Cozy. Quirky. Cultivated.



“… amazing storyteller.”

TIME (online edition) 5/30/22



It started when he did Muppet impressions at a talent show. He was 8. He killed it. BJ later became a scenic artist and sculptor for TV and film, where for 20 years, he listened to audiobooks every day.

In 2007, when his Classic Tales Podcast hit the scene, BJ Harrison wowed audiences with his voicing skills. Now, over 650 audiobooks later, he continues to impress critics and listeners alike. From eldritch witches to young ingénues, from marble-mouthed gangsters to Shakespearean Danes, BJ has an astounding array of character voices, dialects, and accents at his fingertips.

He still does a mean Swedish Chef, but nowadays it only comes out when he’s banging pots around in the kitchen. Or cooking.

“BJ Harrison is hands down one of the nicest, most helpful, most professional people I’ve ever worked with. My readers love him, which is an added bonus, but more than that, he does a phenomenal job on my books. I honestly had no idea how talented he was when we first started. Nor how much I would need that talent for all my many characters.  I am blessed to have such a great narrator on my team. Thank you, BJ, for being one of the best in the business.”

– New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Kristen Painter

“BJ Harrison is one of the most talented and professional artists I’ve worked with over the years. Within a few sentences I forgot he was there and was swept into the story.  I highly recommend BJ for his beautiful voice, intelligent narration style and large range of character voices, all coupled with a friendly, professional attitude”

-Award-winning author Tal Boldo

“In the world of audiobooks the reader is essential for a good listening experience, and BJ Harrison is one of the best… if not the best. I’m a fan of his and have spent many hours listening to and enjoying his work.”

-Academy Award-winning film composer Joe Renzetti

“BJ Harrison is a master at his craft, with smooth narration skills that reflect every nuance of emotion and bring stories to life with every breath. He’s professional, efficient, and I highly recommend his services.”
