Headliner | Suncharmer
Suncharmer are a guitar-based indie band from Kent, consisting of 4 long-haired, tea-addicted, instrument-wielding alternate types. Having formed on a lonely Valentine’s Day in 2016, the band have been building a loyal fan base and have been attracting the attention of various festivals and venues across the country.
The band create high-energy, driving indie anthems with colourful melodies and psychedelic poetry that draws influence from Jimi Hendrix, T.Rex, David Bowie and Arctic Monkeys. After spending the majority of their first year working to build a solid reputation as a three-piece under the name ‘The Crew’, lead guitarist Josh Brice joined in December 2016 to add a new level of strength and creativity. The band quickly began to develop their much grittier (yet melodic) sound, and were soon asked to play events such as The Vicar’s Picnic, Woodlands Festival, Unfest, IPO Festival and Fat Tuesday in Hastings. Suncharmer have also been offered various prestigious slots at Local & Live 2018 events.
I Am Aquitaine
I Am Aquitaine; purveyors of progressive pop and party rock have a reputation as a formidable live act and are renowned for getting the crowd moving. Catchy hook choruses meld with grooving bass lines, psychedelic space travel collides with heart melting blues, slick new retro wave and trip-hop soundscapes. Having developed a reputation as a formidable live act through extensive gigging in the last 2 years I Am Aquitaine have played numerous seminal venues across the UK including London’s Barfly, The Forum in Tunbridge Wells and most recently a capacity headline show at The Dublin Castle Camden. Choice festival dates have included ‘Aberjazz’ in Wales, two consecutive years at ‘Mudfest’ supporting Toploader, Goldie Lookin’ Chain and Scouting for Girls, as well as playing the Bimble Inn stage at Beautiful Days.
Jack has been tapping his feet to the beat since before he could even walk or talk. His younger years have been full of music, dance and drama performances – if he wasn’t tinkling the ivories or singing for his supper, he was on stage rocking to the rhythm. Taking up the piano at fourteen, he grew a strong interest for music – learning songs that he enjoyed listening to, as well as branching into different genres.
Now twenty, his creative focus is firmly on his guitar and song writing passions. Inspired by musicians such as Ben Howard and James Bay, Jack picked up the guitar around two years ago and has not stopped playing since. Enthused by a number of poignant events over a short period, Jack’s songs have that personal touch while at the same time expressing sentiments with a broader reach.
