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 chat to a young musician from a family of music royalty: Jemere Morgan
Mr Topple x Jemere Morgan
Jemere is from Morgan heritage, his family being one of the most influential group of artists in reggae music’s history. But this young artist is proving a star in his own right. With a stunningly versatile voice, unique songwriting ability and lyrical prowess, he has recently released his debut album. It’s called Self Confidence and it a masterclass in how to diversify reggae music.
On Self Confidence, Jemere effortlessly flips between roots reggae, soul, RnB and hip hop – giving dazzling musical displays in each genre, and often combining elements of all of them. But more than this, Self Confidence is also cleverly constructed into two ‘acts’ both musically and lyrically. It takes the listener on not only an aural voyage but a philosophical one as well. Self Confidence may well be one of the records of the year.
So, I caught up with Jemere for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed Self Confidence, his musical heritage, touring, consciousness, the music industry and more.
Please note this episode was recorded while Jemere was on the road in a tour bus, so some of the audio quality is impaired.

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.
