About Kicker Productions

Who we are and what our clients say

Having spent over 40 years in the entertainment industry, working alongside some incredibly talented people, I’m thrilled to have discovered Kicker Productions. The team behind the brand are highly respected in their own individual areas but together they make a formidable team of professional creatives. They have emulated some of the most demanding musical arrangements to an almost indistinguishable level and it’s usually only when the original lead vocal fails to begin that I realise I’m listening to their track not the original recording. Nothing is ever too much trouble or beyond a last minute tweak. You’ll struggle to find anything close to this company’s skill set and I hope to have the pleasure of their services for many years to come.

Head Sound Engineer

Ben’s career began at the age of 12 when he started playing guitar and singing in various bands. This naturally progressed into an interest in live sound and recording.

Ben’s role as head sound engineer at Kicker, is to mix and master our wonderfully arranged productions from Mike, to create a sonic experience that will leave your audience wanting more. Ben takes great pride at attention to detail in his work and always strives to make the shows and tracks the best they can be.

Ben has been involved with countless productions over the years by being a front of house sound engineer, monitoring engineer and now studio mixing engineer for Kicker Productions. Through his experience in these roles, he has confidence that he can satisfy sound engineers needs when it comes to your performance.

When he’s not busy in his purpose built mixing suite, you can usually find him enjoying a beer with his canine friend, Spud.
