About Incubator Sessions by B:Music & Poetry Co'Lab
Incubator Sessions are back for 2023. Over the next two months we invite you to come and experience exciting new sounds as musicians share their latest creations and test new music before its released, alongside our partners Poetry Co’Lab who bring you some of the most exciting poets from the region. This event is artist & audience interactive, meaning not only do we ask our musicians to co-create a new piece of music on the night but we also invite our audience to get involved by sharing their own poetry or jumping in on our energetic cypher. Whether you choose to sit back and enjoy or get involved everyone is welcome to share this warm creative space.
Incubator Sessions are supported by B:Music & PRS Foundation

Beezie Rap is an independent female artist born and bred in Birmingham, with an incredibly versatile flow, who flips across genres. Using music as expressive content Beezie creates relatable lyrics based on her personal experiences, and surroundings.
She engineers her own music, self-promotes, creates all promotional artwork and uses her video and film production degree to edit her own music videos. Beezie works very closely with Birmingham producer Mix Waves and Essex producer Mos Talented to give us some amazing music and has built a very strong international fanbase. Recently Beezie has been making her way onto UK Radio stations like New Style radio and BBC 1xtra where Beezie said that she’s ‘coming for the Queen of Brum’ title. With interest from BBC's Rap Game UK and battle rap platform Don't Flop we’re looking forward to hearing her debut performance at Incubator Sessions, Symphony Hall.
