The Hoosiers most recently consist of Irwin Sparkes and Alan Sharland and need no introduction. With the multi-platinum debut album 'The Trick to Life' back in 2007, the band have since released 3 more albums, including the singles 'Goodbye Mr A', 'Worried About Ray' and 'Choices'.
After their second album 'The Illusion of Safety' in 2010, the band went through a period of going their separate ways in order to take a break for a while. However in 2014, their next album 'The News to Nowhere' was worth the 4 year gap and the band released the album on their own terms.
It was only the following year, in 2015 when the band then released their next album 'The Secret Service', which put them back on top and let everyone know that they had a musical point to prove.
The band are still huge on the festival scene, and often do multiple festivals every year to big crowds. We are so happy to be happy to bring them to Suffolk, and pleased that they will be supporting the charity. We can't wait to see them at SMiLE!
Just Jack, AKA Jack Allsopp was born and raised in Camden, London. He emerged in 2003, with his critically acclaimed debut album, The Outer Marker, which was followed in 2007 by the album “Overtones” which featured the huge single and Ivor Novello nominated hit Starz in their Eyes.
In 2009, he followed with another successful album “All Night Cinema” featuring hits The Day I Died and Embers. Jack took a break in 2010, in order to teach song writing on a degree course in Brighton, as well as focus on his family life. He returned in 2017 with the album “What We Did Today”, featuring songs relating to being a father and experiences from his 7 year break.
His new found sound is warm and unique, and his SMiLE exclusive stripped back acoustic set is sure to warm the heart.
Sahara Snow, AKA Danny Hall is no stranger to SMiLE. Danny was part of the band Little Giants back in 2017, who played the first festival. For a band not known by millions, their set had everyone talking after the day had finished.
Unfortunately since then the band have split, and gone their own ways as artists. Sahara Snow is Danny's new project and he has already been getting noticed. He was spotted by Phil Taggart at BBC Introducing in 2018, and Danny's unreleased singled 'State to State' was played on his show after leaving them a demo copy.
We are pleased to have Danny back on stage, and only in the early stages of his new music, we are sure he will go on to be a big deal. His new music is due to be released in mid 2019.
Tagore Chayne is a solo singer-songwriter from Bristol. Not only will Tagore be playing his own slot at SMiLE this year, but he will also be playing along Just Jack when he performs acoustically.
Jack and Tagore are good friends, having both lived in Brighton, with Tagore also playing as Jacks support act on his most recent UK tour. Tagore has also played a part in helping Jack to write his songs, many of which feature on Jacks latest album.
But Tagore himself is a very talented musician, with his own singles receiving high praise, and his single 'Vividly' hitting over 27,000 views on YouTube!
St Luna AKA Luke Adams is another SMiLE returnee. Luke played alongside Danny of Sahara Snow when they were both part of band Little Giants who played SMiLE in 2017.
Now his solo work as St Luna has received recognition from BBC Introducing, and he is due to release his debut single 'Relax' on 10th April. With other music in the works, it's a massive year for Luke.
Little Giants played a great set in 2017, and had everyone asking about them. Although not all in the same band, it's good to have Luke and Danny back at SMiLE.
