Welcome to #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you a new podcast on the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

In a special episode, I’m joined by Grammy-nominated musician Protoje. His critically acclaimed 2018 album A Matter of Time followed over a decade of releases. From the worldwide global smash Who Knows (featuring Chronixx), via three previous studio albums and mixtapes, he’s cemented his reputation as not only an ingenious artist, but an outrider of the roots/revival reggae movement that’s coming from Jamaica.

So, I caught up with Protoje in an overarching interview. We discussed A Matter of Time, his progression and influences as an artist, the revival movement and more.

Enjoy!

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
