Producer/songwriter/beatmaker Benjamin Falik is Julia Lewis. Yes, they’re one and the same. Falik is ambivalent about the idea of personal fame, so that’s why he has a pseudonym: “It’s little bit of smoke and mirrors,” admits Falik, a Berkeley native. “I like playing with people’s expectations.”
Lately, huge things have been going in Ben’s favor. He recently won a competition, selected from among 3,000 people to write with Babyface through his publishing company Good Vibes Music Group. He’ll be participating in Spotify’s Secret Genius session. And, he’s working on his first producer album, set to release late summer/early fall.
