The Glass House was an American R&B/soul group from Detroit, Michigan.

The Glass House was an assembly of house musicians put together by Holland-Dozier-Holland for their Invictus Records label in 1969.[1] The group was led by Ty Hunter and included Scherrie Payne, sister of soul singer Freda Payne. The group released two full-length albums and had a string of chart hits through 1972, but once their popularity had dried up, Invictus dissolved the group.

Shortly thereafter, Ty Hunter and Scherrie Payne joined the Motown roster. Ty joined the singing group The Originals. Scherrie Payne joined The Supremes.
