Neighbourhd and B:Music, the music charity responsible for Town Hall and Symphony Hall, are proud to present a brand new collaboration celebrating the immense talent in the West Midlands music scene.
A series of performances were recently recorded at Symphony Hall, a B:Music venue with Neighbourhd bringing together some of the best artists in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
An EP of the collected work will be released in July - in the meantime, you can get a sneak peak of some of the tracks on Thursdays at 7pm from the B:Music Facebook and YouTube channels.
