Billy in his Recording Studio
Thompsound Music is violinist Billy Thompson‘s music production company. The three main services currently offered are the Recording Studio, Location Recording and an Online Session Musician service.

Recording Studio
The Recording Studio is best suited to solo projects and is perfect for a singer/songwriter or other solo artist to build up a project. Having said that, the premises are more than adequate for a small band to record live should this be what is required. There are more than enough channels to accommodate this.

Location Recording
The Location Recording service allows Billy to come to you wherever you are. So the project can be recorded at your desired space. This is particularly useful for choirs or other large groups – or if there is a special gig your band would like recorded then we can come to you.

Online Session Musician Service
The Online Session Musician service offers World class session musicians for music, TV and film projects. To date, clients from around the US, South Korea, London and elsewhere in the UK have used this service with great success.

“Great online session services for any musician”
