I've been in the recording industry for over 8 years. I recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Production & Engineering, and now I own/operate The Hang Studios in Fort Worth, Texas where I'm involved in projects across all music genres. I love to develop artists and help bring their passion and music to fruition!
Producing & engineering immediately become my first love in 2009 when my dad pulled out an old Roland VS-2480 and taught me how to track my own songs my brother and I had been writing. I was raised in a very musical family, and with me being the youngest, I had to take on all the filler instrumentation. It wasn't until I learned how to engineer that I really stuck out in a family full of superb musicians. So I stuck with it ever since!
I spent about 4 years at Square One Studios, then received a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music and got my degree in Music Production & Engineering in 2016. Since then, my brother and I started The Hang Studios where we've been grinding away at the quickly growing Dallas/Fort Worth music scene.
My services include full production, recording, mixing, and mastering. I have made it a point to be as versatile as possible, so I've done projects of all genres: jazz, metal, country, punk, pop, etc. Let's make some music together!

Reviews of Ben Barnett
Ben is a highly qualified mixing and recording engineer with great attention to detail were it really counts... YOUR MUSIC! I'll be continually working with him at The Hang Studios for as long as I can!
Great producer and engineer who also has a great work ethic. Ben is finishing my album this year for Common Grounds and has been exceptionally fast and thorough. He's very versatile in styles such as Rock, Jazz, Electronic, Americana, indie and more. I've paid for more at other studios in the DFW area that were not as professional or reliable as this one. Ben Barnett is the guy to go to!
I've been working with Ben for a couple years and he is one of the most talented, most invested engineer/producer I know. We worked together on films, records, live recordings, ads and every single time I'm surprised by the final results! Ben works incredibly hard and fast but without loosing any quality in his work. Do yourself a favor and work with him!
Ben produced, recorded and engineered my latest album. We spent 5 days at The Hang Studios working on it, and it was one of the most joyous weeks of my life. Ben made the process incredibly easy, and the 12 songs we finished are full of happy memories. They are more musically advanced and technically precise than anything I've done before. I can see myself working with Ben for the rest of my life.
Ben has mixed 6 albums that I've put out since 2012. Just recently wrapped up my newest in April after doing the whole record in his studio. He is an amazing producer and engineer. Took my album to places I never expected it to go. I highly recommend him!
Ben is extremely professional and proficient. Ben has incredible insight and attention to detail. I've worked with Ben on probably a dozen projects and I am more impressed each time I work with him. I would highly recommend him.
I've been in the music business for over ten years and Ben is hands down the best audio engineer/producer I have ever worked with. I am always dumbfounded with how knowledgeable he is, how consistently world-class his product is, and how he never settles for mediocrity. I would highly recommend hiring Ben to work on your project. You will be glad you did!
