Benjamin Harrison on SoundBetter

I've performed and recorded with Cirque du Soleil on four of their flagship touring productions and can record soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophone for you in any style. Check out my latest album releases to hear more of my playing.

I graduated from the Elder Conservatorium of Music with a Bachelor of Music Performance, specializing in Jazz Saxophone. During my studies I held the 1st tenor saxophone chair in the Downbeat magazine award-winning Big Band One, and in 2008, received the dB Magazine award for Top Undergraduate Saxophone.

I've toured as a band-leader, musician and programmer on Cirque du Soleil's productions of 'Quidam', ‘KOOZA’, ‘VOLTA’ (with music by Anthony Gonzalez of M83) ,'Alegria', 'X: The Land Of Fantasy' and 'MESSI10'.

I'm a P. Mauriat saxophones and Légère signature reeds endorsed artist and play all saxes; soprano/alto/tenor/baritone.

Check out my album releases on Apple Music / Spotify for my most recent work.

I record from my fully equipped sound treated home studio using Neumann microphones, Universal Audio Apollo x6 and top of the line equipment.

    Working with Benjamin has been an absolute pleasure. Not only the music is beautiful and incredibly well executed (he plays all the instruments!) but also the communication was perfect, instructions were crystal clear and there was always space for being creative. I can't recommend him enough!

    Working with Benjamin was an absolute pleasure. The music was beautiful, instructions were as clear as they could be, and there was space for creativity too. I would love to make some more music together, I can't recommend him enough!

    The piece Benjamin composed was elegant, perfectly composed and performed without flaw. His sax solo was the exact touch the song called for and I can't imagine a better one or a better fit. Excellent work!!
