Matt Adams - drums, bass, guitars, vocals, piano, toy piano, melodica, chord organ, lap steel, ceramic frog ocarina, percussion.

"These recordings were initially intended to be demos with the intention of re-recording all of them someday. I only managed to re-record 25 of them (some released, some unreleased), so here's the rest with some recent additional overdubs. Check out it's companion piece, 2020's 'Power Trio' album."
