Hello Emerson is a rising band from right here in Columbus, Ohio. Kish and I have had the chance to see them perform several times, and they’re great.
They have a new song out called “Am I The Midwest?” I’ve linked the YouTube video for the song above. If you’re a born and bred Midwesterner — even if you’ve since moved away — I bet the song will strum some mystic chords of memory for you. It’s a great song that really captures a living, breathing piece of this part of America that so many of us call home.
Hat tip to the GV Jogger and Dr. Science, whose son Jack plays keyboards for Hello Emerson.
