Jake Bugg is 18 years old.
Just let that sink in for a second – and now listen:
I couldn’t get tickets for the London dates – they sold out between my deciding to go and finding someone to come with me – so I’m going all the way to Cambridge to see him.
This is one of the more 70s pop/Beatles-reminiscent tracks from his self-titled debut album, some are a bit more Bluegrass, some a little more prairie folk, all from an album that’s reflective of an old soul with a young heart.
As I said, he’s 18 – and in his words: “I play guitar and sing.”
Merry Christmas all!
