ABOUT

Ben “PrivateSchool” Thomas has established himself as one of the most sought after engineers in Philadelphia. He has worked with a magnitude of major label artists and has had a influential hand in crafting the sound of the new generation of independent music coming out of  Philadelphia.

In 2017, Ben served as the engineer for Jazmine Sullivan and Bryson Tiller’s song Insecure for the show of the same name. He also served the engineer for Brian McKnight's album Genesis. Ben’s work on both of these projects earned him two Soul Train Award Nominations as well as an NAACP award nomination.

Currently, Ben is working as the main engineer for both RECPhilly as well as Studio Breed. He is also a co-owner of nicethingsMUSIC, an independent record label distributed by The Orchard (formally Sony Red), and is taking a larger role in the Philadelphia Chapter of the Recording Academy. Outside of music, Ben has spent time editing podcasts for iHeart Radio’s 'Art of the Hustle' as well as ADR and audio mixing work for the online TV Series 'Single and Anxious'.
