J.T. Moring, who sings and plays banjo, guitar, and percussion with the group, is working on a solo project. "Last month, I went out in the desert and this month I went to Omaha, so I didn't get much recording done. But I did do a lot of listening to the demos and thinking about arrangements. This week I've been back in the studio and making good progress. I found I needed to re-do two rhythm tracks at better speeds, one faster and one slower. One song I re-wrote the lyrics to make it fit better as the album opener, and I added one song for the closing number. I think. I'm afraid recording follows the 80-20 rule: you spend the last 80 percent of the time finishing the last 20 percent of the task. We'll see. The next part is some of the most fun, where I get to add all the bells and whistles - and bouzouki and banjolin? - to make the arrangements sparkle." Instruments used so far include "Lots of acoustic strings, but also the pennywhistle and harmonicas, plus an electric keyboard that has nice organ sounds. I really enjoy playing bass, which I only get to do in the studio."
