Paul Thompson Music Recording

Paul Thompson is a music producer and recording engineer based in Gresham, Norfolk. Offering studio  recording, mixing, mastering, mobile music recording and CD duplication.

 

Paul has recorded four commercially released albums of his own music, as well as numerous recordings for bands, choirs, and orchestras in the East Anglia region, including the Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra for a BBC Voices production.

 

Paul's cabin recording studio is well stocked with a selection of high-end outboard equipment, microphones and recording software (see equipment list below), and is ideally suited to singer-songwriters and acoustic acts. Located in the grounds of a beautiful walled garden, it is a perfect getaway for creative inspiration. For bands, choirs and orchestras, Paul runs a mobile music recording service, as well as PA hire / recording for live performances.

 

Having gained a Master's Degree in Songwriting from Bath Spa University (during which Paul lived in a motorhome that was converted into a mobile recording studio by Sound on Sound Magazine), Paul can help get your songs ready for recording, and offers tuition in songwriting and music production. Recording can be a daunting process, but Paul's knowledge of recording and production from the perspective of a working musician in his own right will put you at your ease, and help you get the most out of your songs.
