Recording artist Iyeoka explores her roots in Boston and her evolution from a pharmacist who dreamed of being an artist to a successful songwriter and poet.
- I really never thought it would necessarily happen to me, that I would have a song that's like and internet, YouTube sensation. With the presence of the internet, with the presences of these tools, it's a new audience. I'm on top of technology. I like the test out a lot of different applications, it really does allow me to communicate with others. You know, with people that I'm co-creating with. Boston is one of the hubs of slam poetry, and it was a place to grow that was weekly opportunity to discipline myself to write a poem or a song or a hook.
You know, going from high school, to college, to working as a pharmacist, to evolving into my musician self. It's been a process in figuring out what is the discipline in this?
