Our 2020 Excursions artist lineup
Sam Emerson Bodary’s songs have proven a maturity beyond his age, with an approach “so round, clever, and grown-up that he could easily be fifteen years older.” Now at 25, Bodary leans into How to Cook Everything, Hello Emerson’s second record with K&F Records and first with Columbus’ indie Anyway Records. www.helloemerson.com
Yuppie (August 7)
Yuppie creates music to encapsulate living in a Midwest city fighting to grow and be relevant, very similar to them as a group. Signed and releasing music through a local label “Invention City Records”. Yuppie is a revolving door of musicians coming together on a project to create. Yuppie people come and go, yet always accepted. The project at the core is run by Zack Sliver, a self-pronounced Yuppie, who is the lead singer and guitar player. The newest EP “A Place to Call my Own” was released January 2020, accompanied by a music video shot by Ethan Frederick, a local filmmaker. www.theyuppiemusic.com

The Echodolls (August 9)
The Echodolls is a small music production group, made up of Sam Dakota and various friends. The Echodolls is a mix of Glitch Pop, Techno, and Industrial music, with an aesthetic of digital and analog corruption. In total, Sam gets help from friends willing to pitch in with Technical Help, Vocal Segments, sound mixing expertise. Together they explore new sounds, attempting to integrate the auditory aesthetic of Data Music with Music Theory.
All The Echodolls' tracks are self-released, and are not currently with a label. Overall, Sam hopes to release an Album of remixes, called Refactored Melodies, later this year; and together, the group hopes to release a yet-unnamed EP of original music. soundcloud.com/echodolls
Eleanor Dakota (August 9)
Eleanor Dakota was raised on radio. Music radio in particular. From the beginning, her innate musicality was evident—she would coo in harmony and rock to the beat. Eleanor plays multiple instruments (drums, too). She can sight read music. And she finds music in everything.
During this time of pandemic, at the age of 17, Eleanor has been working on an album. She submitted this rough draft of one of the tunes that will be on her debut: “No Love of Mine”. soundcloud.com/user-288015515
