Warm, lush strings for your next song or project. 🎻🎻 Recording credits include Paramore, Hayley Williams, & Night Beds. Live performances on Jimmy Fallon, NPR's Tiny Desk Concert, and with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Commercially, my violin can be heard in ads for Subaru, Kay Jewelers, and the Dragon Age™ Inquisition video game trailer.

Hey there! I'm a classical violinist, composer, & producer based in Nashville, TN. I love working with artists, bands, and producers to add warm, lush, buttery string arrangements to their album, project, or song.

Over the last 10+ years, I've had the honor & privilege of working alongside with some of the most talented, humble, creative, & driven musicians I know. In 2011, I produced Night Bed's LP "Country Sleep" alongside the incredible Konrad Snyder, and added many of the guitars and most all of the strings. Most recently, I've recorded strings with Hayley Williams, Paramore, HalfNoise, Molly Parden, & Becca Mancari, to name a few.

  1. Review by Daniel James

    Ben Is my favorite violin player to work with and my first call whenever I need strings. I've been lucky to work with him on everything from small bedroom recordings to major label artist sessions and he has elevated every song he's been a part of. His tone and consistency are phenomenal and he excels in both charted sessions and open ended on the spot improvisation. He has an amazing work ethic and is a fantastic hang both in and out of the studio. Cannot recommend enough!

    Such a tasteful string player. Had him record on my contemporary worship project in 2019 and it added so much while fitting in seamlessly with the guitars, synths, and vocals.
