Recording artist/producer from Canada with songs in the top 40 back home. I've been recording and producing music for over 20 years. I'm a multi-instrumentalist/arranger. I studied theory and harmony at University and can orchestrate and write vocal harmonies fast. I also own a recording studio in the Malibu mountains, a short drive from LA.
My job as a producer/engineer is to help the artist find their sound. I've spent lots of time on both sides of the glass in recording studios and know how important it is that the vibe is good and that the artists feel open and free to express themselves. I always like to meet the artist, show them the studio, listen to music and discuss projects before we get started.
As a pianist/keyboardist, developing chord progressions and harmony is my speciality. I work a lot with chords and chord voicing so the song has the most natural flow and musical impact. I also do a lot of work with analogue and soft synthesizers.

I had a great experience working with Ben! His musicianship and the audio quality were both fantastic, and he delivered exactly what I needed. I look forward to working with him again in the future
I've been working with Ben for a number of years and it's never less than an excellent experience. He's a mellow but straightforward and hardworking co-writer, and a lot of fun (and also fast and decisive) in the studio.
Ben is an exceedingly talented musician. He's a reliable and helpful communicator and added to the way I think about my writing. Looking forward to working with him again.
I worked with Ben as the engineer and producer on my solo ep. He is a very talented musician and a pleasure to work with! As an artist, it is hard to find a producer that will really listen to your vision and your needs, adding to your project without taking it over. Ben achieves this balance very well. His attitude is laid back, positive and encouraging, and it's easy to see how much he loves what he does. I consider him a collaborator on my record and loved the experience of creating it with him.
Ben is an incredible musical being. He understands what the music needs and fetches it in ways that reflect great sensitivity and originality. I highly recommend his services !
Ben Wilkins is a multi-talented musician and producer. He is absolutely great at creating vocal harmonies and composing instrumental arrangements. He is a true professional that has a good taste. Besides recording songs with Ben, I had a chance to hear him performing live as well and his concert was flawless!
Ben Wilkins is nothing less than a musical genius! He understands music in a place where there's no space or time, and for that I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a music idustry professional. Singer, songwriter, producer,composer, you name it!!! 10 STARS!!
