6 Music Live at Maida Vale Jake Bugg, Jake Bugg

Lightning Bolt

Sound the BBC Introducing klaxon - this favourite of Noel Gallagher is ready to bring timeless rock and roll back in to fashion.

Calling upon the likes of Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Donovan, Bugg discovered the guitar after watching Vincent by Don McLean on The Simpsons. Writing seemingly effortless, melancholic songs, it wasn’t long before appearances at Glastonbury 2011 on the BBC Introducing stage and Later… With Jools Holland beckoned.

Despite his youth and understated live performances he holds big hopes for his music, wanting it to create impact and offer escape from the everyday. Jake Bugg is here to stay.
