I'm a producer, composer, musician, singer & mixer with an extensive track record in film & recording. I love collaborating and helping people realize their potential. My background in film makes me fast and flexible, & I produce music in a wide range of styles, play many instruments & am well versed in ProTools ,mixing/mastering & vocal tuning.
I am a producer first, and focus on the song, the singer and the beat. Check out the SoundCloud feed below to hear some of my recent SoundBetter projects.
Along with years of production work, recording and performing with top musicians and artists, I've produced the music for seven Oscar nominated or winning films including two best song nominations.

Reviews of Arthur Pingrey
Arthur is a true professional in every sense of the word. Open minded and super talented with a great vision. Ill be working with him immediately on some other tracks!
This was my first experience using SoundBetter and it was excellent. Arthur is a pro. He took a song that sounded flat and really made it sing. He was responsive to my input and I can not emphasize how amazingly quick he works. Thanks for everything.
It is a pleasure to build a professional relationship with Arthur, who has the experience, talent and openness to drive a project in the right direction. Thanks Arthur!
Arthur did a great job! My track sounds professional with his mastering job.Warm and deep in the same time.He followed my directions and fulfilled my wishes about the final product .High recommendations!
Great sounding mix and more than happy to make any necessary changes... fully recommended...
Arthur is an experienced, open-minded enthusiast with a clear vision for a project. As a singer/songwriter at a turning point in my career, I am enjoying collaborating with Arthur to steer my path in a new direction and I feel confident and supported by his involvement. Straight-talking, musical, bold, a good listener, positive and open-minded.
Arthur is a pro, in every sense of the word. From helping craft a vision for our project, to executing on the vision, to delivering beautiful & creative music - he followed through on every step of the process. He is a master at his craft. Thank you, Arthur!
Working with Arthur was everything that a production experience should be. He made my visions come to life with ease, and even expanded my concept with his suggestions. I would definitely work with Arthur again!
Every experience collaborating with Arty over the past 15 years has been a genuine pleasure. Whether he's arranging and producing in NYC or making Pro Tools edits on the fly at Abbey Road, he's a consummate professional and first rate musician. Can't wait until our next collaboration!

Arthur is modern day Samurai. Incredible skill, great humility, deadly talent. It was a true honor to have worked with him.
Arthur and I have worked together on numerous occasions. He is a skilled composer, arranger, engineer, producer and instrumentalist (he plays clarinet, saxophone and other woodwinds and is an incredible guitarist as well). Whether you need a tasteful clarinet passage or a vibey guitar part, or a song produced top to bottom, Arthur is your man.
Arthur's ability to collaborate and execute on a wide range of musical styles is top notch. His extreme facility on multiple instruments and software make his "well, let's at least try it once" approach super productive and fun. His ability to communicate and get the most out of his partners makes him a gifted collaborator. #RealDeal
Arthur is one of the best writer's and instrumentalists I've ever worked with. We have worked on very big projects together and I wouldn't want anyone else in there with me. Amazing arranger, writer, and hands down the best multi-instrumentalist one could hope for.
Mixing and producing 5/5 as well.
Arthur is a great musical mind and a fantastic collaborator. He is relentless in his quest to "unlock" the right music for the situation, and his wide range of musical talents give him a lot of angles to look from. Highly recommended!
