The Riff Factory Story

Riff Factory was established in 2013 by Stoke-on-Trent musicians Tom Carter and Ant Hulme. After years of gigging and recording experience, they decided to make their own mark on the local scene forming Riff Factory.

Riff Factory is now a big part of the local music scene with many bands making connections and even forming here.
