About this Quote

In this quote, James Iha is talking about the impact of being a successful Asian artist in the music industry. He discusses that he has actually heard from others that it is very important for people to see someone like him, who is both widely known and successful, as it provides representation and inspiration for others. This recommends that there might be a lack of diversity in the music market, especially in regards to Asian representation. By being an effective musician himself, Iha is breaking barriers and paving the way for other Asian artists to follow in his footsteps. His words highlight the importance of representation and diversity in the music industry.
