“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery” is a famous Oscar Wilde quote that undoubtedly applies to Aeromyth. This Aerosmith tribute band is praised as The Ultimate Aerosmith Tribute Experience across the globe since 2007. The representation of the original band that is displayed individually and in its entirety is astonishing. Aeromyth takes you back to the 1970s, and swiftly rock through the 1990s.
Their one goal is, “The suspension of belief while remaining true to the undeniable spirit of America’s greatest rock band.” They have perfected their technique in recreating a true Aerosmith experience down to the finest details. Yes, he looks like Steven Tyler and absolutely walks, talks, and portrays the part like only a rock star could.Read More

At nineteen years young, Al Johnson Performing Songwriter Contest finalist Emma Walsh may be only teetering on the precipice of formal adulthood, but her music is rich in maturity and sophistication. Having recently completed her first year at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University (Percussion Performance) we caught up with Emma to learn a little more about this blossoming musical ingenue.
Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival: What song inspired you to become a songwriter?
Walsh: In second grade, my parents got me two Norah Jones albums “Feels Like Home” and “Not Too Late” for Christmas. It was while listening to these two albums non-stop that I first realized that writing songs was a thing and that it was what I wanted to do. I’ve always loved creating new things, and through songwriting I can do that. I was always intrigued by how everyone kept coming up with new things to write about and sing about in songs, this fascination then became somewhat of a challenge for myself to write songs and then I ended up falling in love.
