Alternative singer-songwriter, Uyoka, is an artist of many faces. Her eclectic music style – brought to life by her captivating contralto vocals – experiments with elements from all music genres to create a style that is all her own.
Uyoka is a self taught musician, and her influences include a broad and disparate list of musicians, ranging from Linkin Park and Tracy Chapman to Hikaru Utada and Mariah Carey. Her evocative lyrics are rooted in emotive poetry, which she began writing at age 14.
When it comes to her music, Uyoka is an adventurous risk-taker, always pushing beyond the expected. The genre-defying vocalist loves to do things differently. To her, music is fascinating, fluid, forever in flux – and she is driven to explore it in as many ways as she can.
