I'm addicted to writing topline - coming up with melodies is so natural to me. I have mostly written in the R&B genre, but have also written soft rock, EDM, pop, rap, and indie songs.
Baritenor range. Melodic R&B and melismatic vocals.

Interview with Ben Ruettiger
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I am always writing to beats I find on the internet. So I'm currently working on many songs.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I can promise to remain genuine and reliable.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: That it's easy. In some sense it is, but it takes a lot of time to create a full piece of work.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Be upfront with the feel of the song as well as how much you are willing to pay. I am not set in stone for writing costs, so come by honestly and ask!
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I am a healthcare professional. Been doing this for 7 years now! As far as singing? Since I was able to speak, and have been songwriting nonstop for 5+ years.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Charismatic, soulful, easy on the ears.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: SO MANY. Top of my mind though is Chloe x Halle. I love their style and production.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Mostly R&B music. I do write some soft rock, EDM, and rap songs as well.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: Apart from topline writing, singing is my strongest skill.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: Honesty, melodic vocal runs, harmonies, and character.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: Listen to the instrumental track, record the melody, write lyrics to the melody and vibe of the track, and then record the song in my DAW. After the main vocals are recorded and the lyrics are finished I go back and record background vocals, harmonies, and ad libs.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: AKG P220 Condenser Microphone w/ Pop Filter, Focusrite Audio interface, AKAI Midi Controller, Sterling microphone shield

A: Write toplines, and recording vocal melodies. I am able to record quality background vocals, ad libs, and demos for songs that I write to.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Don't be too much of a perfectionist. I know, and you know, that you've sat in the studio for a solid 9 hours doing the same thing over and over again. It's tiresome!
