Jake Bugg is not so long age, and yet exudes his music something timeless and classic and stands in the tradition of great singer / songwriter Art. In October, the young man from Nottingham has conquered with his eponymous debut album went straight to number # 1 in the UK charts. In this country, his debut will early next year.
Meanwhile, one may well assume that even in our having one or the other already heard of this young gun: After all, Jake Buggs eponymous debut album in late October of zero entered at # 1 in the UK charts. He had previously been a hit: first with a gig with those top-secret show the Stone Roses in London Village Underground to a few days later Noel Gallagher whose probably most intimate solo show to open Ever (Gallagher was in Dingwalls in Camden occurred). While the latter the young man unceremoniously also committed for the rest of his tour of Europe and the United States, has Jake Bugg Now not only a lot of great gigs in front of him, but rather a great future.
But to get this straight right away: Jake Bugg is certainly not the guy who lives only by his "Connections" and so takes off because it protects other soaped. How could they? After all, he has spent the majority of the 18 years that he dwells now already on this planet in Nottingham - and to London's has only devious him after his label has asked him to do. If Ever something as an attraction has as this honey, then it is his own songs because the fOr talk to. "I think Noel has simply heard and him they have fallen," said Jakes modest comment.
And so it was - said Mr. Gallagher and the Stone Roses who were by no means unique in having those like his songs. Jake Bugg has already occurred across the UK; he has worked hard, extremely played many shows and won with each of these appearances broader fan base. His headlining shows in Manchester and London, which are pending in November, had already be moved to larger venues, and after also the release date of the album had to be brought forward in his home, speaks the chart position of course quite clear: Jake is undoubtedly the man of the hour.
He has a pretty good idea of what he can attributed this success: "Although I do not give a great deal of praise and compliments," he continues, "but generally, people come to the concerts to me and say that you can find sound simply refreshing. No idea, but apparently it is so that guitar music always comes back when someone has just explained again fOr dead. The people are just hungry for this sound. And I hope that more people once again pick up a guitar in the hand, rather than always rumzuhantieren only with synthesizers. "
That he himself regards all quite classic with six strings, he went himself but also only on after had brought quite a modern form on the idea him: One consequence of Simpsons It was the Jake brought to the music. "Since the song 'Vincent' by Don McLean ran how afterwards turned out," he recalls, "and I wanted to know who that was. I just wanted to learn to play this song and compose similar pieces yourself. - Yes, and so it went wrong with the music "
But first, he did what everyone does who falls head over heels in a song: He pursued this melody back to basics, plunged ever further into the history of music. At first, he worked his way through other pieces of McLean, then he met Buddy Holly and Richie Valens, and so it went on and on in search of that essence, that Something that distinguishes the really big songwriter. So he soon found his heroes: "Modern stuff I discovered much later. I know as yet, as I have heard for the first time Arctic Monkeys - and thus could not start so much. Only when I was a tad older, I realized: 'Ah, that's full to the 12; this is the bomb. 'But has taken some time. "
With "so the 14" he grabbed then the acoustic guitar his uncle and started based on the already learned songs by other musicians, to knit his first original compositions. It did not take long until crystallized first useful ideas: Strictly speaking was even one of the best tracks of his debut album, "Someplace", During those first steps as a songwriter. The beautifully-melancholic ballad already contributes clearly his handwriting and shows what a good hand for melodies he had even then. "In a couple of bands," he was previously been, but had him and the other guys pretty obvious quickly that Jake more fit to be a solo artist. "I wanted always to do my own thing, and since then everything happened so quickly, the plan seems to have indeed risen."
he signed his record contract only a year ago, only Jake so productive that since then a number of new songs have emerged; so many that eventually even had plenty of ideas to be discarded in order to end up with the fourteen tracks of his debut the same name. As for the themes of these pieces, he's not the type who likes long and broad discuss and make statements; However, he must also not: lines like "I go back to Clifton to see my old friends / The best people I could ever have met / I skin up a fat one / And hide from the feds" from the track "Two Fingers" speak for themselves, and in the end it comes in his compositions frequently about how to get away from it (those "fat one", the fat joint) or even the harsh realities of the world can make a little more bearable by music. In case of "Taste It" he throws himself into the future and feels more alive than ever, while its UK debut single "Trouble Town" like a line from a anmutet blues classics: "Stuck in speed bump city, where the only thing that's pretty is the thought of getting out".
"Some act of my life at that time, how me ... so much was real shit," reports Jake. "I'm not very good at it, it all unravel exactly, but they are all based on personal experience. When I write lyrics, I try to be honest not so much to think about; better it is but if you let it all just so gushing out of it. "
And that is Ever the element Jake Buggs sound is characterized: this effervescence, this flow, this unfiltered honesty. Whether it is from the crude-aggressive guitars "Lightning Bolt" or for his age too insightful and mature line of "Seen It All" or else another piece of his debut is - all that sounds as natural as pleasant unkalkuliert so obvious from the soul of a young man out bubbly. Jake Bugg is an artist, to the many have been waiting for, the one has been missing since ... well, say so: have appeared on the scene since those artists who ask him these days for their opening act.
His current ranked # 1 in the UK charts underlines what either way is obvious: Jake Bugg is the most exciting singer / songwriter talent that has to offer the UK in 2012.
