Primary Color Music is a team of music-lovers and music-makers dedicated to crafting the perfect song and sound for visual media.



Brothers Dan and Sam Billen were raised in a house of advertising/marketing.
Their dad, Bill Billen wrote and produced jingles in the 70’s and 80’s.
He eventually moved from broadcast to print where he remains today.


Sam started working in commercial music production in 2009 and formed PCM in 2013.
Sam has a Master’s Degree in Education and taught university-level ESL (English as a Second Language).
He also speaks Japanese and travels to Japan once a year to visit family.

In January 2015, Dan left his decade-long career in advertising, most recently as an Art Director, to join PCM.
Dan’s Paper Dali won the top national ADDY for best illustration in advertising in 2009.

When Ryan Pinkston joined PCM, he brought years of commercial music experience with him.
Ryan’s band, the Republic Tigers, performed on David Letterman in 2009.

Josh Atkinson was an English teacher in Japan for almost a decade, but moved back to join PCM.
Josh has been a longtime collaborator and friend – so he’s naturally a perfect fit!


Here are some of the clients we’ve had the pleasure to work with over the years:
