Ben McGuinn

Rich King Recording

Ben McGuinn's affinity for larger-than-life, epic sounding music production comes from his admiration for pioneers like Trent Reznor, Andy Wallace, Alan Moulder, and Butch Vig.

Ben specializes in producing, engineering, and mixing rock and electronic music – and he's equally experienced working with adult contemporary and acoustic artists.


Whatever the genre, Ben has a particular soft spot for complex arrangements disguised as bite-sized songs, and he's is a fan of the big, super-pop production of Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and Benny Blanco (Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Ke$ha).

Always happy to sit in the production chair, Ben really loves to see a project through from beginning to end.

The creative process of collaborating with an artist, exploring techniques and ideas, and working to develop a distinct sound in the studio is what drives his craft.

Ben will always pour himself into a recording project, and he's never happy until the artist is.

His experience with high-stakes recording projects, complemented by the creative production techniques learned from established pros, results in a well-rounded producer with confidence beyond his years and a knack of bucking conventions when the situation calls for it.
