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 met a rising star on the music scene: Jaz Elise.

Mr Topple x Jaz Elise

Jaz hails from Kingston, Jamaica. She grew up surrounded by music; her father is a pianist and guitarist and her mother an accomplished singer in her own right. Jaz honed her skills in local church choirs and at school.

Her first entry into the music scene was in 2018, with her debut single For You dropping in November that year. It was an intricate mix of dancehall and reggae. That and the conscious lyrics, giving thanks to the country that raised her, set the tone for her style. She recently followed this up with her second track Fresh and Clean, a delicious mix of afrobeat and dancehall which showcases Jaz’s ability as a vocalist perfectly.

So, I caught up with her for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed her musical upbringing, who has inspired her, the growing movement of female artists coming out of the roots Revival movement and more.
