RSR221 – Hamish Benjamin – Lessons Learned from Mark Howard, Joe Chiccarelli, Steve Albini, Butch Vig, Vance Powell, and Eric Valentine About Recording Bands

Hamish talked about building your first studio, reaching for excellence in sound, building a business, and recording full bands in cool spaces from the pros: Mark Howard, Joe Chiccarelli, Steve Albini, Butch Vig, Vance Powell, and Eric Valentine.

My guest today is Hamish Benjamin a Recording Engineer and Producer from England, as well as the host of a new very cool podcast called 'Somewhere Sound' where he interviews great producers and engineers. Hamish is also the youngest guest to be on Recording Studio Rockstars at the tender age of 21. He started his podcast less than a year ago yet he already has a whos who list of incredible guests including Mark Howard, Larry Crane. Joe Chiccarelli, Steve Albini, Butch Vig, Vance Powell, and Eric Valentine to start.  

As an engineer himself, he runs a portable recording studio business also called 'Somewhere Studios' recording mainly from a hall in the south east of England. He specialises in recording bands live, playing together in one room, fusing traditional recording techniques with the benefits of modern digital recording. 

So I am excited to talk to Hamish today about what he has learned from his luminary podcast guests and from starting a studio business himself. And maybe even remembering what it was like to be 21 again. 🙂
