THIS PODCAST CONTAINS LANGUAGE AND CONTENT SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED IN THIS EPISODE ARE THE OPINIONS OF THE HOST AND GUESTS.
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 the First Lady of the renowned Ghetto Youths International record label, who has just dropped her debut EP, Conversations in Key: Sherieta.
Mr Topple x Sherieta
Sherieta has been in the music industry for many years. She is already an established songwriter and backing singer, having worked with some of the biggest names in reggae like Marcia Griffiths and Tarrus Riley. But she has also steadily released tracks of her own, including 2010’s Reggae is Life. Now, under the guidance of the Marley heritage Ghetto Youths, she has released her debut EP. Conversations in Key is a stunning project. The six tracks showcase her remarkable voice fantastically, along with her unique songwriting ability and top class musical arrangement and production. Conversations in Key has cemented her status as one of the most exciting musicians to emerge from Jamaica.
So, I caught up with Sherieta for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed Conversations in Key, her journey to this point, musical inspirations, the current movement of artists emerging from Jamaica and more.

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.
