Ben Cullum  Songwriter/Producer/Musician

Studio Sunhatch Studios

Ben Cullum is a hugely gifted songwriter, producer and programmer. He is also a multi-instrumentalist playing keys, bass, guitar, drums as well as additional vocals on most records he produces. He ostensibly writes classic songs with pop and modern soul leanings. Ben is based in a beautiful setting, 20 minutes outside London. His studio, Sunhatch has a great sized live room, fully equipped with an enviable amount of classic vintage guitars and keyboards.

Ben has recently worked on projects for the likes of the hugely talented Celeste (who won the BBC Sound of 2020 award), Craig David, Charlotte OC, Kate Nash, Big Heath, Jodie Abacus, Sophie Faith and Dan Elliott (private Soundcloud link available on request). Ben has also co-written/did additional production on "Stop Right Now", the lead single from soul legend Gabrielle's seventh studio album "Do It Again". The single reached the A-list at BBC Radio 2, with the album peaking inside the UK top 5 at #4. Other recent credits including co-writing/producing Harley Sulé's latest single "Something Good" and co-writing Hannah Grace's single "Blue", playlisted by BBC Radio 2 and taken from her debut album "Remedy".

One of Ben's biggest successes is co-writing and producing Rizzle Kicks' hit single "Tell Her", which was A-listed at BBC Radio 1 and is in their top 5 most popular songs with almost 8 million streams. He also produced their song "Life's A Treat" from the Aardman film Shaun the Sheep and their infectious version of DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince's (Will Smith) classic "Summertime", which features Jazzy Jeff himself. Ben's breakthrough came from writing the hit single "These Are the Days", taken from his brother Jamie Cullum's multi-platinum album "Twentysomething". Ben has also had cuts on subsequent albums "Catching Tales" (including the hit single "Mind Trick" which has garnered over 10 million streams), "The Pursuit", "Momentum" and the Ivor Novello Award winning latest album "Taller". The albums have collectively sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Ben has also had cuts and singles with the likes of Matt Cardle, Sarah HardingBrian McFadden, Tunde Baiyewu, Charlene Soraia and Ferry Corsten.

Ben also has a huge passion for house music. Under the pseudonym Sunhatch, Ben has been signed to the likes of Toolroom and Motion, producing and remixing various singles.

In terms of other musical ventures, Ben has also secured syncs on the likes of Evian Water's Wimbledon marketing campaign, Very fashion's summer campaign, MTV's Swatch advertising campaign with Cathy Dennis, US cop drama Unforgettable, Isabella Rossellini movie Late Bloomers and the hit television series One Tree Hill. Additionally, Ben's music has been featured in a number of sports campaigns including two tracks for Manchester United.
