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 know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
