Jake Bugg

The (Boy in the) Band:  Jake Bugg


What’s the story?:   When a skinny 19 year old mopped top kid from Nottingham stepped up to the mike on the recent Noel Gallagher & Snow Patrol tour, no one expected much.  But with each passing song on his lone acoustic guitar, the boy known as Bugg carried the crowd through an eclectic songscape of early folk-pop, skiffle, and shoegazing Britpop, sounding like a disciple of the great British songwriters before him. His self-titled debut album is sure to ignite, and a bright future awaits.    


Sounds Like:  Liam Gallagher cry cry crying early Johnny Cash in the Cavern

The gateway song:    “Lightning Bolt”

Other songs:
