The Cabin Recording Studio


Paul Thompson is a singer-songwriter and music producer based in Gresham, near Sheringham, Norfolk. Offering studio recording, mixing, mastering, and mobile music recording.


Paul's cabin recording studio contains a selection of professional analogue and digital equipment, microphones and recording software, and is ideally suited to singer-songwriters and acoustic acts. Located in the grounds of the beautiful Gresham Hall Estate, it is a perfect getaway for creative inspiration. For larger bands, choirs and orchestras, Paul offers a mobile music recording service.


Having gained a Master's Degree in Songwriting from Bath Spa University, Paul can also help with pre-production, giving advice on song-structure and arrangement. 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.


Paul has recorded five commercially released albums of his own music, as well as many recordings for bands, choirs, and orchestras in the East Anglia region, including the Norwich Philharmonic Orchestra for a BBC Voices production. To listen to some examples of Paul's recording and production work, check out his music page.
