Asheville, NC (October 31, 2006)–A high-end, full-service recording studio has opened in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. The studio, called Echo Mountain, is located in an old church, restored by recording engineer and Echo Mountain owner, Steve Wilmans.
Echo Mountain’s Live RoomEcho Mountain offers a live room with three isolation booths in what was the sanctuary of the church. The stain glass remains in the windows, which adds to the majestic vibe of the room. The control room features a Neve 8068 console and custom monitoring by George Augspurger who designed the facility.
Jessica Tomasin, who is the general manager of the facility, is interested in creating an environment that fosters talent and can be a recording refuge for the many bands and artists that are developing in the Asheville area. “This music community here is amazing, diverse and unique,” she said. “We are excited to be a part of the projects that these bands are putting together. In addition to large-scale album projects Echo Mountain is active in post production, providing facilities and engineering talent for film work, advertising agencies and voice over clients. The studio offers a large selection of vintage, analog and digital gear that can make any project, large or small, flow with perfection. Their coveted mic collection is varied and expansive with the best mics in the universe offered.”
One of the goals of the studio is to become a destination for musicians, audio engineers, and record producers throughout the country that desire the tranquility that Asheville provides along with high-end equipment. To that end Wilmans has also bought a large house that will comfortably sleep twelve located just a mile from the studio. Like the studio, the house features all the amenities that ensure comfort, style, and entertainment.
