Ben Leinbach is an award-winning producer, composer, recording engineer, and multi-instrumentalist
A collaboration with Mawk Phoenix. Vocals and lyrics by Mawk. Instrumental music by me.
Accentuating an artist's essence through a well-conceived supporting track; chiseling away at a musical production in search of the perfect alchemy of elements to bring a track to life; creating entrancing rhythm textures, sonic sanctuaries of beauty, or evocative cinematic zones -this is I love producing.
I've engineered recordings with Joan Baez, rappers E-40 and Spice-1, Ledisi, Pops and Peto Escovedo, saxophonist Joshua Redman, former Testament guitarist Alex Skolnick, Tim Alexander of Primus fame, Dawn Robinson from En Vogue, world music innovator Jai Uttal, The Braxton Brothers, The Turtle Island String Quartet, new age music pioneer Steven Halpern, monster bassist Michael Manring, former Santana percussionist Orestes Vilato, and many others.
My mixing goals: Fuse all the elements of a multitrack recording into a dimensional, dynamic, and fully engaging sonic experience; structure the hierarchy of sounds in such a way as to maximize the emotional impact of a recording; bring clarity and power to a song’s essence and message.
