“I grew up listening to reggae records, so when I heard a demo of ‘Prisoner’ written by Emily Warren and Scott Harris I felt the song was so relatable to me, I identified with the incredible melodies and lyrics. It’s got emotional levels that take me to both happy and melancholy places, whilst being authentically reggae, which I love” Era said.

The accompanying video finds Era in Jamaica.

“I started loving reggae music when I was 16, and that led me to go visit Jamaica and shoot the video there,” she explained.

“I had an incredible time whilst I was there and the vibe on the video was perfect! ‘Prisoner’ is the kind of song you love hearing because of the beautiful melancholic melodies and the happy reggae beat. At the same time the lyrics talk about me not wanting to take, or be no prisoner. I’m so happy and excited to have it out in the world.”
