P.G. Banker on SoundBetter

I am a mixing & mastering engineer. I write music for film / TV/ ads: www.pgbankermusic.com

I have been writing music for film, TV and ads for the last ten years. Some highlights include co-writing music for the 2012 Coca-Cola Olympic commercial featuring female boxer, Marlen Esparza. And writing the theme song for the short documentary Mountain Man, winner of the 2011 Yosemite International Film Festival Silver Sierra Award. I graduated from the SAE Institute of Technology in Nashville, TN where I studied audio engineering. I have worked with many brands licensing music for TV and radio advertising campaigns, including: Coca-Cola, Walmart, Purina, Chili's, Verizon, Cracker Barrel and Prilosec among others.

    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.
