Hello, my name is Ben Hillman and I welcome you to my new and improved website. I am a musician / composer / producer from the greater Boston area. This site contains information about the numerous musical projects I am currently involved with, as well as some insight to upcoming projects and events.
There have been many changes in the past year, the most exciting of which being the advent of my newest project, The Royal Family. On October 4, 2000 The Royal Family debuted at Bill's Bar in Boston to a packed house of eagerly awaiting fans, and proceeded to install a new ventilation system in the joint (also known as tearing the roof off!) It was also the first public performance of their upcoming single, "It Must Have Been The Music," slated for release sometime in early 2001.
Along with the new single, there are plans for a whole new record label and production company. Expect to see a series of releases and events from the RJ3 / Mega Def production crew, involving a number of local artists and musicians.
When I'm not buried in the studio, I'll be making a live appearance with any number of acts including The Royal Family, Michigan Blacksnake, The Jason Samiagio Quartet and others. Just click on the "Dates" page to see where I'm gonna be next, and as always, I thank you for your support.
Quick shout-outs go to Mom, Pop, Bro and Sis, to Neph and the entire Royal Fam crew, to Greg, Mik, Tony, and all the MB's, to D-Tension of HyperTension Entertainment, to all my friends who've supported me over the years, and of course to my partners in crime, Cowboy and JRS.
Don't forget to tune in every Wednesday night at 9pm to "Soul Power 91.5" on WJUL 91.5 FM in Lowell.
