Biography

Raised on a diet of Brit pop and Bob Dylan, Jake Bugg, born Jake Kennedy
on February 28, 1994 in Nottingham, England, developed through 2012 into a
spectacularly popular young troubadour whose ear for infectious, acoustic melodies
brought him a Number 1 album. Picking up the guitar as a 12-year-old after
hearing Don McLean's song “Vincent” on an episode of The Simpsons,
he started uploading his own compositions to the BBC Introducing website for
unsigned artists and, at 17, was invited to appear at the Glastonbury Festival.
Signed by Mercury Records, he toured with Lana Del Ray and Michael Kiwanuka as
the music industry began to drool over early singles “Lightning Bolt” and
“Taste It”. His track “Country Song” became part of a huge
advertising campaign for Greene King IPA beer and an impressive performance on Later...with
Jools Holland
sent his self-titled debut album straight to the top of the
UK charts. He capped his incredible year by earning a Brit Award nomination for
Best Breakthrough Act.
2013’s Shangri La hit Number 3 with the
single “What Doesn’t Kill You” just missing the top 40. In 2015 he
captured the NME’s Best Solo Artist award. 2016’s On My One tackled
darker material and again went top 5. Hearts That Strain hit Number 7 in
2017. 2021’s Saturday Night, Sunday Morning became his fifth straight
top 10 album.
