Three years ago, the pharmacist and part-time poet Iyeoka from Boston decided to start prescribing nothing but medicine for the soul. Her third album «Say Yes» puts this daughter of Nigerian immigrants on par with Tracy Chapman, Lauryn Hill, Shirley Bassey and Sade.

He does it with depth and a sure sense for powerful grooves.
