Ben Botfield on SoundBetter

I'm a Professional Singer/Guitarist who has been doing this for as long as I can remember, I have a wealth of session experience both in the studio and online. I've had original tracks broadcasted on BBC radio, featured on EMI's production library and working with SoundBetter clients have gained millions of plays on Spotify.

My main concern is that you're satisfied with what I'm creating. Music is my life and I would absolutely consider myself a perfectionist. If you're not happy, I'm not happy..it's as simple as that.

My main vocal styles include: Pop, soul and blues.

Guitar: Rock, acoustic, blues.

And look, if a picture of me looking pensively in to the distance in my best tweed jacket doesn't make you want to make music with me, I don't know what will!

    Ben did a fast and splendid job of playing bass on this track. And then once again, he demonstrated his engineering prowess with a top-notch mix. Ben gets a five star rating for musicianship and technical mastery! Until next time...

    Another great mix by the multi-talented, Ben. If you're looking for a great mix engineer with proven technical skills, great music skills and a superb ear, Ben is your man. He's meticulous and thoughtful in his approach. The end result is quality!

    What can I say? There a lots of talented musicians/composers/vocalists on the planet. Ben stands head and shoulders above most - right along side the best of the best. He's got the right stuff - and then some. Fantastic playing (many instruments)/singing/arranging on this blues tune!

    Ben's talent as a musician and vocalist, plus his keen ear, make him the perfect mix engineer. He has done multiple mixing engagements for me and each has been a spectacular success. Great attention to detail and dedication to quality!

    Ben did a fabulous jazz interpretation of a bubble gum pop song. He turned it into something special, played all the instruments and sang it all solo - except for one small piano solo. For all practical purposes this was a single-handed and masterful effort. He did the mix as well. Amazing talent. A music machine.

    If I could write a review a great as Ben's musical and singing abilities, I would. But, alas, I am not an author. He's pretty incredible. You ask him to bring the soft and sweet, he does. The rock - he does. The pop - he does. The funk - he does. The country - he does. No sure he actually has any musical or vocal boundaries. Pretty amazing. Oh, ask him to throw in some piano - he does. Lead guitar - he does. Rhythm - he does. Bass - he does. Midi instruments - he does. I could go on.

    When I playback Ben's takes, I get confused. It seems liked I have hired Santana, George Benson, Buble - and then I realize it's Ben. His talent affords him the ability to FLY musically and vocally in any number of styles. But there is one common characteristic in all of his work - quality and heart. OK, that was two characteristics. I could recite even more...

    I had the difficult task of writing a memorial song for the 30 year old son of our best friends who had died recently. Luckily, I discovered Ben and he was up for the challenge of expressing both the sadness and the joy of someone who died too soon but was a true force of nature and much loved. Ben's wonderful voice was able to give shape to all the "colors" the song required. Easy to work with, and a talented musician too. Flexible and open to suggestions. Will work again with him.

    Looking for a purveyor of honest vocal and performance talent, devoid of the ponderous flim-flam, elevated self-importance and glittery excess? Well Ben is the go to source. He’s a very pure voice among the razzle-dazzle of other current musical offerings. Ben , with full conviction in who he is working for can strip your tune down to its roots then add unmatched arrangement strategy interspersed between the verses and choruses. This was my first work with Ben and it will not be my last.BRAVO

    Ben helped, record the lyrics, create a cover melody, and fine tune the prose of a Christian Hymn that my significant other and I penned in the last year.
    I am absolutely thrilled to have stumbled across Ben's page. He is as talented as the other reviews clearly state, but most of all, he was respectful, considerate, and patient, despite the demanding nature of having to rearrange seemingly miniscule details for me.

    Best of luck Ben.
