P.G. Banker on SoundBetter

I'm a producer and multi-instrumentalist with a catalog of hundreds of works that have placed on TV networks like: CBS, FOX, MTV, VH1, CMT, History Channel, Discovery and lots more. I work on artist projects as well and I love the process of writing and recording music: www.pgbankermusic.com

I have been writing, producing, mixing and mastering music for film, TV and ads since 2008. I have written hundreds of songs and had thousands of placements. Some highlights include co-writing music for the Coca-Cola Olympic commercial featuring female boxer, Marlen Esparza. And writing the theme song for the short documentary "Mountain Man", winner of the Yosemite International Film Festival Silver Sierra Award. I graduated from the SAE Institute of Technology in Nashville, TN where I studied audio engineering. I currently teach Composition & Songwriting at The Dark Horse Institute in Franklin, TN.

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

  1. Review by Darian L.

    Exceptionally professional. A wealth of knowledge. Very helpful in getting the best version of the mix. I didn't feel like "just another drop in the bank account," but felt like P.G. was sincerely interested in my project being the best it could be. I would definitely use his services again.
