Ben on SoundBetter

HEY YOU. I'm here to help with any of your creative needs. I've garnered over 100 million streams online, and released through Interscope, Glassnote and Warner Records among others. My music has been licensed with Google and Apple. I specialize in Experimental, Electronic, Indie, Hip-Hop and Singer/Songwriter.

Hey I'm Ben--I've worked as a professional musician and producer for 8 years. I've worked with CHVRCHES, Armin Van Buuren, Gryffin, GRiZ and Emancipator to name a few.

I can turn your demo or rough idea into a full song through matching your vision, embellishing on a work in progress, or brainstorming something new. Would love to help put your idea out into the world that communicates exactly what you want to express, and do it in the best way possible.

I grew up as a classical pianist, and I also play percussion and guitar. I work in Ableton and Maschine, and have a wide array of synths and plug-ins to get the job done.

Tell me about your project and how I can help, through the 'Contact' button above.

    I really can't recommend Ben enough. He has gone above and beyond on my project and understood exactly what I was looking for! He took the time and care to get the exact result I was after. Will definitely be using again!

Interview with Ben

  1. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
