Press release from Drop of Sun Studios:
Drop of Sun Studios is expanding its facilities to offer a wider range of services and affordability. Since launching in 2015, Drop of Sun has worked with local and nationally recognized artists, reinforcing Asheville’s reputation as a hub for musical creativity.
The development of Drop of Sun’s expanded multi-level studio — well underway at 821 Haywood Road – will cater to a wide range of musicians with two self-contained production suites designed by world renowned acoustic architect Wes Lachot. The centerpiece of the development will be a gorgeous two-story live room featuring three isolation booths and a large adjacent control room. There will also be a smaller studio suitable for production, writing sessions and overdubs. The new construction is in accordance with the new West Asheville commercial building form-based code, which requires new development to be positioned in line with streets and sidewalks. It is the vision of the community focused local residents and owners, Adam and Emily McDaniel, to not only strengthen Asheville’s musical reputation, but to provide a promising creative hub that extends foot traffic along the flourishing Haywood strip.
Established in 2015, Drop of Sun Studios and Production was founded by UNCA Musical Technology graduate Adam McDaniel. Studio partner and engineer Alex Farrar will share operation duties. Their professional grade creative space provides a welcoming and intimate atmosphere, inspiring musicians of every genre to produce their most fulfilling and authentic work. They offer an array of services including music engineering, production, mixing and mastering, a space for writing and pre-production, podcast recording, voiceover production, sound effects engineering and on-location recording.
