| Housed in Asheville’s original Salvation Army building, the new API studio finds the perfect balance of old and new. The 9600 square foot, 3 story building gives our clients a myriad of recording possibilities. The George Augspurger designed control room is on the bottom floor of the studio, along with a main space and 4 isolation rooms with incredible sight lines. There is also a comfortable lounge, seating area, and shower that doubles as an echo chamber. For a larger room sound, the API studio has an open tracking space on the second floor with tie lines to the control room. Cameras and monitors are available for clients who want to use both spaces. With a variety of vintage microphones and amps, and analog and digital options we can create the environment that a client needs to be their creative best.
Truth and Salvage Co.
The North Carolina-based roots rock collective Truth & Salvage Co. formed in 2005 around the talents of guitarist/vocalist Tim Jones, keyboardist/vocalist Walker Young, guitarist/vocalist Scott Kinnebrew, drummer/vocalist Bill "Smitty" Smith, keyboard player Adam Grace, and bassist Dean Moore. Boasting four singer/songwriters and a history that spanned the East and West Coasts, the group's unique blend of Southern rock and indie pop was honed in Los Angeles and perfected in the mountains of North Carolina. The group's eponymous debut album was produced by Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes and released on Silver Arrow Records in November 2009. The band's second album, titled "Pick Me Up," is slated to release this July 23rd.
The incomparable harmony of soaring, sultry vocals, prolific lyrics and unique fusion of Americana, bluegrass, R&B, and roots music makeup the “heartfelt country soul” Underhill Rose has become known for. The Asheville, N.C. based trio is led by Eleanor Underhill, an accomplished lyricist and banjo picker, with an alluring, smoky voice and Molly Rose, the powerful songstress with a soaring vocal range and dazzling stage presence. The addition of bass player Salley Williamson produces an impressive third harmony to this lovely trinity.
