The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively.
"Reedy’s ambient composition style engulfs us, creating a cocoon of sound that allows listeners to absorb every emotion the music exhumes. His album is a series of contrasts that inadvertently comment on the complexity of love, and at the album’s end, invoke feelings of having completed an emotional journey."
"A beautifully melancholic, highly impassioned ambient album full of slowly evolving textures and pensive chord progressions. I definitely look forward to hearing what Reedy does in the future."
