Dion Graham

After a few seconds of conversation with actor Dion Graham, it's clear why he has received so many awards for his audiobook narrations. Graham MGSA'87 has the kind of voice that might be heard on a whaling ship or in a logging camp ; rich, deep, full of authority and range. When he, slides into, say, a raspy rendition of Miles Davis's voice, as he did for the narration of Miles: The Autobiography, the performance, is as good as anything , on film, or stage.

Graham, who holds an M.F.A. in acting from Mason Gross School of the Arts, is perhaps best known for his portrayal of state's attorney Rupert Bond in the HBO series The Wire. He also narrates the long-running A&E crime documentary The First 48. But, it is his audio narrations ,that garner the spotlight; Graham was recently named a " Golden Voice " by Audio File magazine, and Booklist's 2012 "Voice of Choice," the latest, in a long line of awards.
