Songwriting, Producing and Arranging

Indie icon Ben Kweller has captured the hearts of fans and critics for over 15 years. His no-rules approach to music making, constant touring, and refusal to be pigeonholed, has sprung forth a career that rolls on regardless of fads and trends. His genre-jumping catalog of five albums, four EPs and multiple singles have sold over half a million copies worldwide.

When it comes to creating music for others, Kweller brings a wide range of talents to the studio and writer's room. He's a multi-instrumentalist adept at guitar, bass, keys, drums, and programming. As a producer, he takes the old-school approach: Song first. Arrangement next. Bells and whistles last.

His songwriting skills run deep with lyrics, melodies and hooks that are memorable, fresh and authentic. Kweller's talents have been called upon by creators of all walks, from artists like Ben Folds, The Dixie Chicks, Hanson, Rhett Miller, Bright Eyes, America, Talib Kweli, The Strokes, and Guster to corporate juggernauts like Ray Ban, Netflix, and ESPN.

His music has been featured on many major motion picture soundtracks, most notably, The Wedding Crashers, Up In The Air, The Lone Ranger - Wanted, The Way Way Back, and Mr. Deeds. Shana Goldberg-Meehan, creator of the hit TV show Friends, called on Kweller to write and produce the main title theme song for her ABC sitcom, Better With You.

Creative projects like these coupled with the challenge of helping artists reach their potential is what Kweller thrives on when he’s not working on his own stuff.

Kweller works and resides on a 28 acre ranch in the Texas hill country, 45 minutes west of Austin.
