It is a rare breed of musician that can successfully be both a music producer and a recording artist. With a well deserved reputation as a “Music Designer” par excellence, Ben Pelchat (AKA remixer Turbo Zebra) hails from the iconic Kensington Sound studios, where he can be found producing #1 charting albums and award-winning TV/film music. He has worked with Grammy Award winners and outstanding artists from all over the world, as well as serving as frontman for many great bands over the years.
Ben composes, sings and is a multi-instrumentalist - a musician’s musician. Now going solo, he is creating material that is rapidly gaining recognition. With eclectic and poetic songs that draw influence from Bowie, Michael Jackson and Beck, Ben’s bilingual Quebecois heritage also brings comparisons to such artists as Arcade Fire.
His current projects include a collaborative Christmas song with Jade Mya, a full-length ground breaking pop folktronic album with famous LA-based RnB producer Earl Powell and Montreal-based indie producer Alexy Guerer, and a video by director Paul Taborovsky for Ben’s November release of his new single “Ocean Deep”.
