Miami University Audio Engineering and Music Production (AEMP) is hosting the Roxford Music Fest, a free concert, 7 p.m. tonight in the Uptown Park. The concert will feature local singer-songwriters and bands.
AEMP member Julie Mullen helped plan the concert. She said AEMP works with several artists throughout the year. The concert is a way to showcase their talent.
“AEMP is a student organization that works with local musicians to record and market their music, which includes mixing and editing their recorded music for CDs, posting their music online and booking shows,” Mullen said. “We record several bands throughout the year and we thought it would be good to show them off in one big concert.”
The concert will feature artists Crossinova, Corey Bush, Red Samantha, LΔst Lights and DJ Ish. Some of the artists will also be selling their CDs at the event.
Singer-songwriter Corey Bush has been playing music since he was 10 years old. He said he considers his genre of music alternative rock.
“I usually like writing about personal experiences, just something that the audience can relate to,” Bush said. “If I can relate to it, I have a sense my audience will be able to relate to it too. It’s all about heartfelt lyrics and sincerity.”
Bush said he hopes the concert will give people a chance to hear his music.
The concert will last until 10 p.m. No ticket is required for entry and passersby are welcome to stop by and stay as long as they want.
