Ben Tolliday is an Australian sound engineer based in Los Angeles. A string player for over 30 years, he draws inspiration from his classical training in all his production.
Ben has worked on recordings in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand with artists as diverse as Alanis Morissette, London Symphony Orchestra, Hozier and Lord Huron. He’s worked in the studio with Alan Meyerson (mix engineer for Hans Zimmer), Rob Kirwan (U2, PJ Harvey), Guy Sigsworth (Björk, Frou Frou) and toured with Smashing Pumpkins and Lord Huron.
He was an engineer on Lord Huron’s critically-acclaimed records, ‘Lonesome Dreams’, and ‘Strange Trails’, including the RIAA Platinum-certified single ‘The Night We Met’, and the much-anticipated third album ‘Vide Noir’. Ben was score mixing engineer for Peggy Guggenheim: Art Addict (official selection at Tribeca, Telluride & Art Basel) and was the score recording engineer for Killing Ground (official selection at Sundance).
As part of his 2016 Churchill Fellowship, Ben worked at Abbey Road Studios in London with Mark Mothersbaugh on the score for Thor: Ragnarok, and with Henry Jackman at Sony Studios Los Angeles on the score for Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.
