TESTIMONIALS:

"Ben has been an absolute pleasure to work with on the Izzy Bizu project and became an integral and essential part of the team pretty much from the get-go. Ben is passionate and vocal about what he believes in but also manages to keep everyone on side, no easy feat!" - Rachael Bee (Izzy Bizu)

"Ben is both a true professional and a lovely chap! Tom is quite hands on with his live show but we wanted an experienced second opinion on areas of the set that we felt were lacking. Ben came in and was able to work alongside Tom to build more energy and structure into the set. His guidance and opinion made a big difference and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him!" - Duncan Murray (Tom Misch)

"Ben has been instrumental in helping build Amber Run (Sony/RCA) from the ground up in all aspects. From sonics, performance technique, programming, to helping source gear, sponsorship, vocal coaching and most importantly, mixing Front of House for all live shows." Jonathan Morley (Amber Run)

"Ben has been a pleasure to work with, right from initial rehearsals and deep into tour. You can sense his passion for music in the way he works - it is this attention to detail and his resultant musical mixing style which really sets him apart." - Fyfe

"Ben is a natural leader. He holds an atmosphere of true professionalism. His warmth and generosity get the best out of the artist and musicians, everytime. He creates some of the most awesome shows." - Richard Bundy keyboards, Vocals, MD
