From The Glasshouse x Nrthrn Baby: NE-O, Shakk, The97Renn and Too Common

Part of From The Glasshouse


Fresh. Unapologetic. Next generation talent.

From The Glasshouse is a regular showcase for independent and emerging artists from the North East and beyond.

This time around we’re teaming Nrthrn Baby; a Newcastle based music and culture agency that was built to give a voice to those that are underrepresented, especially those that sit within the realms of afrobeat, rap, soul and R&B (all genres which may not necessarily be associated with the North East). Nrthrn Baby proudly work with a diverse range of talent, and are made up of a team who represent just that. Their aim is to connect the dots of the North East and the wider music industry, providing game changing opportunities to artists and creatives across the board.

This month’s line-up features sets from NE-O, Shakk, The97Renn and Too Common.
