CanaryPod: Topple Uncaged meets… Tara Harrison

Topple Uncaged meets... Tara Harrison
Steve Topple


Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

In a special episode, I meet a rising star from New York – but whose roots are firmly in Jamaica. Tara Harrison is a power-housing singer/songwriter. She has worked with legendary artist Lauryn Hill since 2012 and is currently on tour with her. But, her time to shine in her own right is coming. Harrison dropped her first track of the year, PSA, in January. And soon, she’ll be releasing her debut EP. It’s called Lady Lighter and boasts production from the acclaimed RoryStoneLove.

So, I caught up with Harrison for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We talked everything from Ms Hill to the growing movement of female reggae artists.

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?
