There’s a Bugg going around and I think I’ve caught it…bad joke?
No, seriously. Jake Bugg is a welcome addition to the music industry with melodic songs, breath taking guitar skills and a unique voice you would want to listen to all day.
Nottingham sensation, Jake Bugg, quietly strummed his acoustic guitar onto the music scene in mid 2012 after he was given a spot on the Glastonbury introducing stage and since then has been nominated for a BRIT award and his album Jake Bugg has went to number 1 in the charts.
The 19 year old star oozes raw talent, which makes me cry knowing that I’m nearly 21 and can barley play ‘Sweet Home Alabama‘ or anything remotely complicated on guitar, and with guitar and joint in hand he can control a crowd with the power of his lyrics and unique style.
When I first saw Bugg I assumed he was just another Oasis Indie kid wannabe.
I have never been more happy to be proven wrong.
Bugg is flowing with talent that has not been tampered with during recording and a passion for the music that he is producing.
Listening to ‘Fire’ – which was recorded on an iPhone and put straight onto the album without editing – is a testament to the quality of music that Bugg is producing.
‘Lightening Bolt’ was the first single that gained media attention of the then 18 year old who started writing and performing music at the tender age of 16 (lets be jealous of his young age and talent yet again) when he performed on Later…with Jools Holland.
Fresh faced and talented Bugg has been touring the UK and recently added more dates which sold out the same day of release.
‘Seen it All’ is the next single to be released and, alongside a video filmed entirely in Glasgow, the honest lyrics of trouble this young teen has experienced makes the song stick with you and urge you to listen to it continuously.
Bugg will also be playing at this years festivals and gaining more publicity and appreciation for the music he has to offer.
Although Bugg did not pick up the BRIT for ‘British Breakthrough Act’, voted by Radio 1 listeners, this musician has a lot to look forward do in 2013.
Now sit back and relax whilst listening to the latest offering from Mr Jake Bugg.
