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!

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    Ben has just completed the lead vocals and harmonies on a suite of songs - the successful completion and appeal of this album was in his hands. I knew I could rely on him, and once again, he delivered. His vocals are pure, as subtle as needed, and precise. His beautiful voice is the single element that lifts these songs from being ordinary to being a pleasure to listen to. I have come to rely on him for not only his artistry, but also his professionalism. It was a pleasure. Thank you, Ben.

    Ben is a great vocalist with an amazing vocal tone. Very professional and timely in his turnaround. But, equally important to me, is the fact that Ben really has the technical expertise and gear to create high quality, clean, crisp vocal tracks. It doesn't matter how great a vocal performance is if it isn't well recorded!

    A perfect performance from Ben, as always. He sang the lead vocals and created beautiful harmonies, including a flourish to the outro which took the song from normal to exceptional. He gets it right, every single time. He really is a pleasure to work with. And so talented! He amazes me.

    On this project I needed Ben to sing the lead vocal track, write the harmonies for it, and record those too. He did a wonderful job, lending the song an easy-listening charm that I could never have produced myself. He has a highly developed sense of musicality which makes every project turn out much better than anticipated. I hope to have many more opportunities to work with him.

    Ben was awesome to work with, had a blast helping him write for his project. The session was fun, easy and productive. He had clear vision of what he wanted which he was able to communicate and execute it well. Would love to work again in the future!

    As always, Ben did a flawless job. I've never had to go back to him for do-overs or clean-ups. His recordings are clean and precise, down to the last millisecond. There simply haven't been any problems, only happy outcomes. I don't know how he manages it, but every time his voice makes the project much greater than the sum of its parts.

    As always, Ben is a pleasure to work with - versatile, professional, and with a voice that knocks your socks off. He produces vocals that are much better than expected, and finds ways to make each song meaningful and as good as it can get. He is that bit of magic that every song needs. I'll be doing many more projects with him.

    To make this project a reality, I had to rely on Ben’s vocal abilities and also his aesthetics. He not only made sense of the unusual composition, but delivered a flawless vocal recording that is now the standout element of beauty in the song. Working with Ben is a joyful experience, and it’s a thrill (that I’ll never get tired of!) to hear him sing my lyrics in that irresistible, smoothly powerful, honeyed voice of his. I very highly recommend him.

    Ben's voice is as smooth and fine as silk. When he draws out a note or hits a crescendo, it is so perfectly pitched and strong, yet controlled, that it's pure bliss to hear. His recordings are high quality, and he meets deadlines. I most heartily recommend him. Working with Ben is a pleasure and a privilege.

    Ben has a voice that will give you goosebumps and put a lump in your throat, not only because his voice soars, perfect in every note and every inflection, but because he gives meaning and depth to your lyrics. He understands what you want, gives you exactly what you need, and makes your song sound wonderful. He’s a professional and worth every cent of his fee. I highly recommend him, and look forward to working with him again.
