Show Description

Rising Tide Live was #HackneyLive’s first live music show. Labrinth created a song especially for the show, of which his live band turned from studio recording to live performance before your very eyes over the hour. The song was performed at the end of the show by the live band and BBC Radio 1 Hackney Academy’s emerging talent Kersha Bailey. The show also featured a sofa discussion with a panel of industry experts.
