Recording engineered by Julian Dreyer at Echo Mountain, Asheville, NC

Asheville, just a reminder: Echo Mountain is putting Asheville into the awareness of America’s musicians as it attracts not just Daytrotter and Sollee but artists like The Avett Brothers, Dawes, G. Love, Justin Townes Earle, Steve Martin, the Zac Brown band, Band of Horses and more every year.

You know how everybody wants to come here, to live here? Echo Mountain is helping musicians feel the same way.

From Daytrotter:

He jokingly suggests that they’re going to bury us with our cars and he shuffles out a gorgeous rendition of the Sam Cooke song “A Change Is Gonna Come” – which has as much to do with now, the Democratic National Convention as it did with the civil rights movement and whites-only water fountains, hotels and restaurants. He applies his own cool-water sexiness to his messages, a sexiness that has nothing to do with sex, just a lot to do with an unwavering passion and songwriting chops that are going to make Sollee into a gamer.
