Since 2012 Jake Bugg has scored a Number One album with his self-titled debut, received nominations for ‘Best Album’ and ‘Best Solo Artist’ at the forthcoming NME Awards and is shortlisted for ‘British Breakthrough Act’ at the BRITs. Catch him on the NME/Radio 1 Stage at Reading & Leeds this year.
Bugg’s social observation and wry Northern wit is reminiscent of his heroes Arctic Monkeys, but his sound goes all the way back to Elvis and British blues. Bugg reignited the British public’s fervour for old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll. He’s also been showing US fans how Brits like to rock, spending the last few months in the US playing big gigs.
