Bugg has turned the music industry inside out with the unexpected success of his country folk songs with a rockabilly twist. He’s managed to take the sounds of the 1950s and 60s into the 21st century. But how did a teenager from Nottingham—a city whose music scene was previously notable for one hit wonders and novelty records—go from the bottom of the bill to the top in such a short space of time? Journalist David Nolan has immersed himself in the Nottingham music scene and tracked down the key players who helped Jake along the way. Here, for the first time, is Bugg’s story, in this unofficial biography.
