The 15-year-old country music star EmiSunshine is currently making a tour of the United States, and making a couple of stops in Ohio along the way. The singer, born Emilie Sunshine Hamilton, made a detour to WYSO's studios to talk with Niki Dakota on Excursions about her music career (starting at age 9), her tour behind her latest album Family Wars, and play a few songs live on air.

EmiSunshine makes two stops in Ohio on her current US tour, including one this week in Findlay, OH on Thursday March 5 at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts, and on Friday March 27 at The Ludlow Garage in Cincinnati, OH. More information can be found at TheEmiSunshine.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.
