  • Tom Gibson - Blackhill Founder

    Recording Studio Southampton

    Run and managed by Tom Gibson. You should feel safe in the knowledge that your work is being dealt with by one of the most qualified producers in the country. Tom studied on the Tonmeister course at the University of Surrey which is one of the most highly regarded degrees in the world. He now has over a decade of experience in the music industry and in that time has worked with a number of top artists and engineers at a number of world-class studios. After growing up in Southampton, Tom wanted to bring this knowledge back to create something Southampton's music scene was lacking, a professional recording studio with a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere that enables artists to create their best work. 

    Tom has also spent the last four years in artist development. Not just helping 'up and coming' artists and bands find and hone their sound when they get in the recording studio, but advising new artists on the industry and answering many questions that new artists stumble over like - how to be an independent artist, where best to put your music, what things to look for from publishers and distributors, what managers are looking for etc. All invaluable advice to an up and coming artist.
