Benyamin Holley on SoundBetter

Need a songwriter? A singer? A producer? A consultant? I'm able to assist you with any of your audio media needs. My speciality is in doing features (hooks and vocals), vocal tuning, beat production and mixing services for hip hop and indie artists.

Currently a student of Music Industry Recording Arts at St. Petersburg College with a specialty in Music Production. I have been recording using Ableton Live for the past ten years and I am currently learning protools. I'm a talented singer and songwriter as well, and I'm willing to contract those skills as well. I have a modest recording studio in my home which is open to vocalist clients or laptop producers who'd like to hone their productions on a slightly larger system in a treated room.

    I loved working with Ben. His knowledge and spirit are amazing. He worked hard and didn't cut corners on his mix

    Extremely versatile and takes pride in his work - absolutely committed to producing the highest quality regardless of the type of project. You can’t beat the price for perfectionism.

Interview with Benyamin Holley

  1. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  2. A: It's a false dichotomy. They both have their ups and downs.

  3. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  4. A: That I will do my best to bring out the vision that they have in their head for the music they are creating.

  5. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  6. A: What their goal is with the project, first and foremost.

  7. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  8. A: Don't come unprepared. If you're not sure what you want to do, I always recommend that we sit and talk for a moment to see how our time together can be best spent. Some people are happy to take your money while you try to figure out what you want to do once we're on the clock. That's not how I like to do things.

  9. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  10. A: A rich life experience, years of production experience, and the ability to pull people together to create a story. Because that's what a song really is, something that explores the wonder, or pain, of our short time here on earth.

  11. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  12. A: It's a modest studio, laptop, second monitor, ableton push and a novation launchkey, with a pair of krk 6's. And of course... a lava lamp. Or else it wouldn't be a studio now would it?

  13. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  14. A: Honestly, the guys who run the Six figure home studio podcast inspire the hell out of me. But as far as bands and such, I love Mike Posner, Travis Scott, and The 1975 right now.

  15. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  16. A: At my home studio, 90% of the clients I receive are recording vocals. The remaining are collaborating with me on a production, usually rap or electronic music.
