For those that use iTunes (doesn’t everyone?), the Free Single of the Week is Jake Bugg’s ‘Lightning Bolt’. You can download it free here –>itunes.apple.com/us/album/lightning-bolt-single/id620456099 in the U.S.
It amazes me that Jake Bugg is only 19 years old. I have t-shirts older than him!
I first became familiar with Jake Bugg after reading an awesome concert review (complete with excellent pictures) on the blog Every Record Tells A Story. You can read it here–> EveryRecordTellsAStory.com/2013/03/27/jake-bugg-live/ (This blog is full of great stories out of the UK. I highly recommend it.)
The first thing that strikes you when you see Jake Bugg live is that he reminds you of a sulky teenager (because he is one) in his Adidas trainers and Fred Perry shirt – but then he opens his mouth and out comes the most amazing voice. This is a voice that cuts through all the nonsense in the newspapers and leads you to ask “How does someone that young get to be so good?” ~ EveryRecordTellsAStory.com
This was all kinds of awesome!
Quite a voice.
Seems like he has an Old Soul.
If you close your eyes and listen you would never know his age.
