You will be spellbound! Joshua is joined by Asheville percussionists James Kylen and River Guerguerian to form a World Percussion Supergroup. Listen as they create an Acoustic Storm on hammered dulcimer, vibraphone, and world percussion. Joshua and James composed Acoustic Storm during a mountain thunderstorm in Asheville, NC. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Uzh0Myb5_0

I have recorded three albums with Randy Wills/Exceptions Studio, and I have been *completely satisfied*. Randy is a highly skilled and trained musician, producer, and audio engineer with over 40 years of experience. This studio has everything you need to create a professional recording. Randy recognizes that he most important thing to a quality production is performance. Randy has ability to coach your performance to the next level without being intimidating or killing the creative spirit. The recording gear is top-notch. This review is not intended to be a bear-analysis, but you can view the recording gear on Exceptions Studio website and will see this gear is top-of the line. Randy is an exceptional engineer and knows how to use the gear for professional results. The studio has 5 primary rooms: A vocal room, drum room, instrument room, concert-hall with wood floors & grand piano, and a mixing room. From soloist, bands, or orchestras, this studio is designed to record almost any need. The computer system has recently been updated to a 64-bit dual-quad-core processor machine with lots of RAM, Pro Tools 10, and dozens of plugin-ins. This should be adequate to handle most 24-bit/96khz productions for the next generation of audiophiles. Randy will also mix/master your project. I'm very happy with the results and have learned to trust his ear and judgement.

Highly impressed with the service and reasonable prices. They went out of their way to diagnose an intermittent issue with my cabin-air fan blower and repaired it at a reasonable rate. After service, I left feeling "I can trust these guys." Will absolutely use them in the future.

Excellent! Fantastic espresso and coffee that is always fresh, flavorful, and crafted by skilful baristas. Keep up the great work, Broadway Cafe. I look forward to seeing you whenever I'm in the KC area.

Fantastic espresso & coffee! I have been a coffee enthusiast for several years. I travel a lot and have enjoyed some of the best reviewed coffee houses in the country. Having tasted "the best", my taste buds say that Waking Life Espresso is stellar. If you're serious about your coffee, you won't be let down. Also, the home-like feel of the interior is welcoming and very enjoyable--this is a place you can relax and get work done.
