Having met at Confetti College of music technology in the late 90s Sam Brown and Huw Jones formed a prolific music writing partnership and gained acclaim in composing for TV and radio.

Looking to expand the recording services they could offer they established Paper Stone Studio in 2003, in a building that was originally a 1940s cinema. Starting off in the old projection room, they were now able to offer full band recording and voiceover services.

Some bands found the old projection room a little cramped, so in 2007 Paper Stone annexed the old cinema auditorium as studio2. This beautiful space with arched ceiling and wonderful acoustics was renovated and is now one the largest live rooms in the midlands, complete with grand piano and giant rolling sound screens.

In 2012 Tom Smith joined the team and shortly after became chief engineer of Paper-Stone Instruments. Paper-Stone Instruments have since become a highly regarded award winning virtual instrument producer.
