ABOUT BEN KING

I’m a music producer, composer, arranger and musician.   You might come to me if …

  • you have written a song, and you want to record it so it sounds as good as it did in your imagination when you wrote it.
  • you have a film, and you need just the right soundtrack to make it come alive.
  • you’re in a band, and you are 100% happy with what you have, and you want to record it just as it is, without losing the excitement of the live performance.

I have spent the last 20 years playing in and writing songs for bands (Grand Rapids, Goldenhorse), producing artists and writing bespoke soundtracks for film and television.    I call on my many and varied experiences every time I work on a new project.   I work closely with my clients, so that we can work towards the best possible results.

Here’s some kind words from one of my clients.

“Ben King is a seemingly bottomless resource of good ideas. He is my go-to man for when I am truly stuck with a song. From aspects such as sound quality to specific things like which instrument to put where, I have never found Ben to fail me in bringing out the intricate beauties of a good song. Listening to his work both with Goldenhorse and lurking in the background of famous New Zealand albums, I can pick out the places where he has made his mark. I would recommend him as producer for anyone who takes their music seriously.”
