Recording artist/producer from Canada with songs in the top 40 back home. Recording and producing music for over 20 years. I'm a multi-instrumentalist/arranger. I studied theory and harmony at University and can orchestrate and write vocal harmonies fast. I also own a recording studio in the Malibu mountains, a short drive from LA.
As a producer/engineer I love to work with developing artists to find their sound. I've spent lots of time on both sides of the glass in recording studios and know how important it is for the artists to feel open and free to express themselves. I always like to meet the artist in person or on zoom, show them the studio, listen to music and discuss projects before we get started. I mostly work with singer-songwriters and indie artists.
As a multi-instrumentalist, developing chord progressions, harmony and song arrangement is my speciality. I work a lot with chords and chord voicing so the song has the most natural flow and musical impact. I record with real piano, analogue and soft synthesizers, real drums/percussion and I score for strings, brass and orchestra and record with live musicians as well as extensive sample libraries.
Prices vary a lot depending on the type of production you're looking for and time/people involved.

Not only does Ben have a great setup setup with top of the line equipment (and a beautiful view), but deep knowledge into both the technical recording and music theory side of things. All of these aspects helped me finally get the sound that I have been trying to achieve. I would strongly recommend anyone who is trying to get a professional style recording.
Incredible experience working with Ben today. He is a musical wizard, just what I hoped. The studio is so beautiful and inspiring too with the view of the mountains. Can’t thank you enough!
Ben is a great producer who really gets that organic sound. He was able to capture the vibe I wanted for my 3 songs with his clear understanding of my vision and brought the songs to life in his beautiful studio overlooking Malibu. He does a great job at finding musicians and is patient and super helpful with recording vocals. It was such a pleasure working with him.
I had a great experience working with Ben! His musicianship and the audio quality were both fantastic, and he delivered exactly what I needed. I look forward to working with him again in the future
I've been working with Ben for a number of years and it's never less than an excellent experience. He's a mellow but straightforward and hardworking co-writer, and a lot of fun (and also fast and decisive) in the studio.
Ben is an exceedingly talented musician. He's a reliable and helpful communicator and added to the way I think about my writing. Looking forward to working with him again.
We had a great experience working with Ben. His recording space was not only well-equipped, but also clean and comfortable. Ben was as professional, knowledgable, and communicative as he was friendly and hospitable. He did a great job of allowing my band to experiment and encouraged new ideas while also providing expert feedback both musically and technically.
Once again, I've found Ben to be an excellent musician with a beautiful quality in his recordings. He did the complete production on a number of tracks in different styles, and they all turned out great! He also took the time to make sure the final result was exactly what I needed.
His way of working makes me very satisfied. Everything went very well. If there is a project in the future I will definitely continue to work with him. the impossible quiz
I worked with Ben as the engineer and producer on my solo ep. He is a very talented musician and a pleasure to work with! As an artist, it is hard to find a producer that will really listen to your vision and your needs, adding to your project without taking it over. Ben achieves this balance very well. His attitude is laid back, positive and encouraging, and it's easy to see how much he loves what he does. I consider him a collaborator on my record and loved the experience of creating it with him.
Ben is an incredible musical being. He understands what the music needs and fetches it in ways that reflect great sensitivity and originality. I highly recommend his services !
Ben Wilkins is a multi-talented musician and producer. He is absolutely great at creating vocal harmonies and composing instrumental arrangements. He is a true professional that has a good taste. Besides recording songs with Ben, I had a chance to hear him performing live as well and his concert was flawless!
Ben Wilkins is nothing less than a musical genius! He understands music in a place where there's no space or time, and for that I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a music idustry professional. Singer, songwriter, producer,composer, you name it!!! 10 STARS!!
