Shaneen A. Harris, poet and author from Akron, has teamed up with the Akronist to produce the “Poetry Unchained” show, a look at poetry and its various forms and uses. Harris says that poetry may be found just about anywhere and her show aims to prove this.
Says Harris: “Poetry has served to help educate us, motivate us, inspire us, empower us and also entertain us.” Poetry is found everywhere, it’s all about how you look at it and listen to it.
In this episode, Harris sits down with Jaron LeGrair, a local singer/song writer and voice/speech trainer who creates poetry with his piano and with his voice. He explains his background and where he gets his inspiration from while offering a quick lesson on how to write a song.
