The Team

Toby Jones

Founder / Producer / Mix Engineer / Drum Teacher

Brandon Ford

Founder / Producer / Mix Engineer

Toby and Brandon studied music at Platform One to prepare for working in the music industry. They have played the main stage at Isle of Wight Festival twice together with their own originals band (2021) and supporting a popular singer/songwriter on the island, Beth Brookfield (2022). They both worked closely as a pair throughout their degree and started recording music, which lead to them realising a shared passion for music production and then founding Calliope Studios towards the final year of their degree. Ever since then their skills, gear and demand for Calliope's services grew and they both moved to their new studio in East Cowes, which opened in January 2024.
