Jessica Tomasin is manager of Echo Mountain Recording in Asheville, N.C.

John Vettese/WXPN

During World Cafe's Sense Of Place trip to Asheville, N.C., we spent a lot of time recording sessions at a beautiful set of studios downtown called Echo Mountain. There are two main rooms: the original studio, built in a chapel complete with stained glass; and the annex, which boasts an even larger room. Echo Mountain's client list is filled with local and national bands, and almost everyone we taped for Sense Of Place had recorded there before.

In this segment, Jessica Tomasin, who has been the studio's manager since 2006, tells the story of the space and gives a little Asheville history.
