In a special episode, I meet a sublime singer, songwriter from Jamaica. Zia Benjamin first blew onto the music scene on the Sean Paul hit Standing There. Since then, after taking a hiatus to return to journalism, she’s back with a bang. So, I caught up with her to talk about her diverse musical sound, her influences, the music industry more broadly and the growing movement of female artists coming out of Jamaica.

Enjoy!
