After a well-received set at Rock-A-Field 2013 he is ready to take on Luxembourg again, this time with a new album under his belt.
According to the legend already surrounding Jake Bugg, he only first picked up a guitar at the age of 12.
Now a singer-songwriter hero to millions of teenagers fed up with X Factor wannabes, Bugg has been nominated for BRIT, NME and Ivor Novello awards, modelled for Burberry and toured with Noel Gallagher all before his 20th birthday.
He undoubtedly has talent, but has also found himself at the centre of a “real music” debate that leaves no doubt as to his immaturity--he has just reached the age when many a young man becomes an unapologetic music snob.
November release Shangri La, produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, received mixed reviews with the NME and The Guardian both giving it a lukewarm reception while The Independent hailed Bugg’s “raw songwriting ability” and gave it a 5-star album of the week accolade.
