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.
