Jake Bugg Biography (Wikipedia)

Jake Bugg (born Jake Edwin Charles Kennedy, 28 February 1994) is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. His self-titled debut album, some of which was co-written with songwriter Iain Archer, was released in October 2012 and reached number one on the UK Albums Chart. His second album, Shangri La, was released in November 2013 and his third, largely self-produced album On My One in June 2016. His main influences are Don McLean, Donovan, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, and the Everly Brothers. In an interview with Absolute Radio in 2014 he also mentioned that the American heavy metal band Metallica was a huge influence to him when he first picked up the guitar as a 12-year-old.

His 2012 single "Trouble Town" is the theme for the BBC TV series Happy Valley broadcast in 2014 and 2016.
