-Reid Karris – drum kit, looping, glockenspiel, mbira, toy piano, melodica, organ
-All songs written, performed and recorded by Reid Karris

Over time the songs that I have been writing for the solo project have become more rhythmical and with more focus on the glockenspiel for melodic texture. While volume one consisted of loosely fitted together songs recorded live in a crowded room volume two was recorded in a studio setting. Even though the music follows the structure you would hear while I was performing live the glockenspiel, toy piano, organ and melodica were recorded separately which allowed some room to expand a bit but I tried to keep the music as true to the solo performances as I could.
