The Hoosiers, whose hits include Worried About Ray, Goodbye Mr A, Cops and Robbers and Choices, are about to follow up their debut chart-topping album The Trick to Life and the top ten follow up, The Illusion of Safety, with a new single and album, both titled Bumpy Ride.

Lead vocals and guitarist Irwin Sparkes, bass and rhythm guitarist Martin Skarendahl and drummer Alphonso Sharland, follow a line-up of other big names who have performed Intimate Performances for Real Radio Yorkshire - including Paolo Nutini, Scouting For Girls, The Feeling, Sara Bareilles, Beverly Knight and Heaven 17.

Frontman Irwin said: “Sheffield is a great town which we have played a six time now, the last time was for Tramlines back in 2010.

“Though we have played across the city we’ve not done The Winter Garden before so we’re very excited to be playing such a unique venue with Real Radio.”

Steve South, Managing Director of Real Radio Yorkshire said: “We continue to outdo ourselves with the calibre of artist we present for our listeners with the Intimate Performances. The Hoosiers are a number one selling artist and a household name renowned for their brilliant live performances. What more can I say but I can’t wait to see them, this promises to be one of our best to date.”
