I had the pleasure of working with Ben while touring with Hollywood Records artist Bea Miller. Aside from his wonderful bass playing, Ben brings a can-do attitude and positive vibe with him everywhere he goes. Ben has a genuine love for people, and that definitely shows in the music he creates on stage and in the studio. I'd highly recommend getting Ben involved in your musical project ASAP!
Interview with Benjamin Sturley
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I work out of a fully stocked studio in my home. I mostly run Logic Pro X, though I'm fluent in all DAWs. Excessive software, hardware, instruments, and monitoring systems.
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I recently scored a feature length travel documentary that's soon to be released on the Discovery Channel. It was a quick turn around with almost 80 minutes of music. I'm very proud of the score, and really happy to have been a part of the process. It's a travel/adventure documentary, and as a lifelong traveler, I was really able to relate with the story being told.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Communication is key--let's talk about your project.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been a professional musician and composer all my life. I started writing music, producing, and playing bass at around 10 years old, and I've made it a career since 18 years old.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Manipulating phase to increase the perception of width is really fun. Louder isn't (always) better!
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: People who are pushing boundaries and breaking routine inspire me. Lately I've been really into Labrinth's unique production and composition.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The most common type of work I do is film, TV, and media scoring. I also am a touring and session bassist for pop and indie artists.
