Experienced mix engineer across genres such as Indie Rock, Americana, Blues and Folk.
Ben brings a passion for mixing and a love for music across multiple genres to his mixes. Using a hybrid analogue/digital signal chain, he will work hard to achieve your vision for the song.
Ben's experiments in sound and music began at an early age with a 1/4" reel to reel recorder. Fascinated by the ability to stack sounds by bouncing from one track to another, a love of recording was born. As a teenager he graduated to a four track Tascam Portastudio and an Atari 1040ST, making home recordings of friends’ music. Ben studied at the School of Audio Engineering in 1999.
Given his eclectic taste in music, Ben is comfortable working across a wide variety of genres from indie rock, pop and funk to heavier styles such as hard-rock. He also loves working with folk and Americana type sounds.
Ben’s mixing style is punchy and dynamic. He enjoys crafting a mix from the bottom up using a variety of creative techniques to bring out the best from the recorded material.
Collaboration with the artist is key to getting the mix right. Ben’s ability to communicate effectively in non-technical language makes the process of mixing your music creative and enjoyable.

Interview with Ben Worsey
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: I don't like to confine myself to working on one particular genre. I love to work on a wide range of projects as it keeps things interesting.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: A creative ear and a love for a wide range of genres of music, from the obvious (rock, pop etc.) to traditional African music, drone, ambient and all things in-between.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: Everland is a hybrid studio, that is it incorporates both the digital an analogue realms. I'm just as comfortable using outboard gear as plugins. At the end of the day it's really about selecting the right tool to achieve the sound that the artist hears in their head.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: An A-Z of a small selection of music that inspires me: Alt-J, Burial, Charles Mingus, Decemberists, Eddie Bo, Flaming Lips, Go Betweens, Heliocentrics, Iron & Wine, James Blake, Knife, Lauryn Hill, Magnetic Fields, Nomo, Otis Redding, Paul Simon, Quantic, Red House Painters, Sonic Youth, TV On the Radio, Ugly Duckling, Velvet Underground, Warpaint, XX, Yo La Tengo, Zola Jesus
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: I am most often involved in the process through both the tracking and mixing phases but I also enjoy being involved in just recording or mixing.
