Jake Bugg: Live on BBC6 Music
If you have not already heard the praises of his name, meet Jake Bugg - one of my favorite new artists.
He is still in his teens, yet possesses a badass, troubadour attitude of an outlaw 20 years his age. He has been known to speak the truth, something I find refreshing in the music business these days. With public statements trashing the talent [or lack thereof] of One Direction, Jake Bugg's attitude speaks for what to expect in his music - truth, honesty and a bit of grit.
Although he was born in Nottingham, UK, he seems to relate more to the American singers such as Dylan & Cash.
Don't let his boyish charm fool you, Bugg holds two fingers up to yesterday and wants you to know that he is here to stay.
His album was released this year on Mercury Records. Get it here.
