Steve Campbell is a Canadian narrator who has recorded over 135 titles, totaling over a thousand finished hours of audiobooks, equal to 10,000,000 words. He won the Independent Audiobook Award in 2019 for YA (Watcher by AJ Eversley – co-narrated with Chelsea Stephens). Steve has also been interviewed for an article in the Wall Street Journal, has been on multiple podcasts, and is a member of SAG-AFTRA.
Steve didn’t start out in the narration business. He previously worked at restaurants entertaining patrons and at an apiary before turning to construction, where he worked for almost 20 years, eventually founding and owning an incorporated company for 10 of those years. Once he discovered his love for narrating, he was able to go full-time with audiobook narration after only 1.5 years.
Severe ADHD did not slow Steve down. He was not only an athlete in school (with achievements of being the captain of his high school basketball and volleyball teams), he was also involved in fine arts as the lead in many plays, including a community performance of Romeo and Juliet. He was also the high school class president and Valedictorian.
Steve was also a lead singer in a church and youth band to crowds up to 300 strong and toured eastern Canada and northeastern US for a year doing multimedia dramas and music to crowds up to 1,500 in schools, churches, community centers, and minimum and maximum prisons.
Steve is happily married to his high school sweetheart, and they have two sons together. He’s a huge fan of movies and comics and didn’t discover his love for reading until he was 20 and hasn’t looked back.
