A quartet version of Lioness, the Dayton-area band fronted by vocalist/guitarist Nathan Peters, will be performing Friday night in Yellow Springs at Emporium Wines and Underdog Cafe. Peters, alongside bassist Ben Cooper, came to WYSO's Excursions to play some live cuts, and spin a new studio track from their upcoming 2020 album.

Members of Lioness, with opener Kyleen Downes, will perform at Emporium Wines and Underdog Cafe in Yellow Springs this Friday, January 17 at 7 PM. More information can be found at Facebook.com.

Evan Miller is a percussionist, lover of sound, and is probably buying too many cassette tapes online right now. Evan got his start in radio in 2012 at WWSU at Wright State University, where he was studying percussion performance. He followed through with both endeavors and eventually landed a lucrative dual career playing experimental music at home and abroad and volunteering at WYSO. Maintaining a connection to normal music, Evan also plays drums in bands, and fills in for Niki Dakota on Excursions. When not doing something music-related, Evan is most likely listening to podcasts or watching food videos at home with his cat.
Born a Hoosier, but only living there in spurts, Niki Dakota spent much of her young life moving around the United States with her archeologist mother. Throughout these years, there was always a ukulele somewhere close at hand. By the time the family settled in Cincinnati, Ohio, Ms. Dakota found herself in pursuit of professional music-making as she headed-up the Alterna-Folk band, Plow On Boy. In the course of her first live radio interview to promote the band, Niki’s keen excitedness manifest itself in extreme chattiness. At the conclusion of the segment, the DJ closed the mic and said, “You need to be in radio."  That was in 1990.
