Reith also found success with Extra Mile, &ldquoNewly signed to Gotee, I was happy to be on tour with TobyMac, Relient K and Family Force 5, but didn&rsquot expect to sell much merch when compared to my tour mates, but we sold out of our initial run of Extra Mile Merch&rsquos designs and had to reorder.&rdquo
