I'm a producer, composer, musician, singer and mixer with an extensive track record in film and tv. I love collaborating on projects, meeting new people, and discovering new ideas. My background in production work makes me fast and flexible, and I can produce music in a wide range of styles, play several instruments & am well versed in ProTools.
Along with years of advertising, production work and playing in bands, I've produced the music for seven Oscar nominated or winning films including two best song nominations.

Reviews of Arthur Pingrey
Great sounding mix and more than happy to make any necessary changes... fully recommended...
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!
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.
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!
