Why Deadliest
Catch: Bloodline
Fans Are Gushing
Over Josh
Harris' Voice
A fan of “Deadliest Catch: Bloodline” took to Reddit to discuss Josh Harris and his voice, stating, "I started Deadliest Catch: Bloodline today. Josh Harris' voice blew me away, especially in the voice-over segments. He has an incredible bass quality to his voice that rivals Sam Elliott. He should definitely do voiceovers for some more programs."
Others also felt the same way, with u/KittenofBalnain saying, "The guy has one of the more soothing voices on TV,” while u/triple20twenty stated they think Harris could take over Mike Rowe's VO should he ever retire. However, these statements caused an immediate deluge of comments that referenced Harris’ hard-living lifestyle and that his voice sounds like a voice of a heavy smoker.
“Sapiens” notes that deep male voices usually carry an aura of authority and strength, which makes them generally pleasing to hear. This preference crosses both cultural and sexual lines, which makes perfect sense as to why somebody who sounds like Harris or Barry White acquires fans simply with the timber of their voice.
