Both of Jake’s parents tried their hand at music careers when they were younger. He started playing guitar at the age of 12 and would later attend Farnborough School. He started getting very interested in music while growing up and was influenced by many artists. He studied music technology but later dropped out to write and perform his own songs.

In 2011, Bugg made one of his first big performances on stage at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival – he was selected after submitting material to their website. Thanks to the opportunity, he was signed to Mercury Records and his songs started to receive airplay, and his “Country Song” would be used in a national commercial for Greene King IPA. The following year, he released his self-titled album which started to gain the attention of critics. The song “Two Fingers” charted highly, while the album reached the top spot of the UK Charts, selling over 600,000 copies and would increase his net worth significantly. In 2012, he appeared in the program “Later… with Jools Holland” before playing as a supporting act for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. He also performed live at the BBC Radio 6 Music show “Live at Maida Vale”.

In 2013, he started working on some new music and would announce his next album “Shangri La” along with a new single “What Doesn’t Kill You”. The album received positive reviews and would earn him a nomination for a 2013 Brit Award for “British Breakthrough Act”. His net worth continued to increase when he performed at the 2013 Glastonbury Festival. He continued to tour and perform at several locations including the Reading and Leeds Festival. His song “Me and You” was also featured in the film credits of “Dumb and Dumber To”.

In 2014 Jake started working on a new album. His music was featured in the film “The Fault in Our Stars” and the song “Feel What’s Good” was featured on the soundtrack of “The Giver”. In 2016, he released a new song “On My One” and followed it up with “Gimme the Love”. The album was entitled “On My One” and was released in the middle of the year. His song “Trouble Town” became the theme for “Happy Valley”, and he also became the shirt sponsor of soccer team Notts County.

For his personal life, no romantic associations as yet. Bugg cites Oasis, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, and Metallica as some of his main influences in music. His formative musical moment was hearing “Vincent (Starry, Starry Night)” on an episode of “The Simpsons”.

Quotes

#Quote
1As a songwriter, it's very hard to listen to music that's not coming from the heart and soul, personally.
2I don't need an award to inspire me to keep making music.
3I play music because I love it and I'll keep playin' till I'm old.
4I don't care about the word 'pop'. The Beatles were pop; it's just what's popular.
5YouTube is a good way to discover new music now because it comes up with that thing at the side with other artists you might like.
6Before I was 12 years old, I had no interest in music; I was just into football. Then I heard Don McLean's 'Vincent' come on at the end of an episode of 'The Simpsons.' You know when you hear something and you don't understand why you like it, you just do? That's how I felt. I just thought, 'I want to be able to write songs like that.'
7It can be disheartening to see acts that don't necessarily have any input on their own material to do so well in the charts.
8One Direction? The young girls will grow up and forget about 'em.
9My mum was a single mum on the dole.
10At school, people would say I should go on 'Britain's Got Talent,' but I would never have done that because it doesn't seem genuine; it doesn't feel natural.
11If a song is longer than three and a half minutes, it'll need something to keep you entertained.
12Sometimes Lennon needed McCartney and sometimes Simon needed Garfunkel. You'd go mad doing everything on your own.
13Bob Dylan is great. I've been compared to him a lot. I think when people see a person on stage with a guitar they just think, 'Bob Dylan!'
14I would love to have been born in the '60s.
15Three thousand people singing back your songs is an incredible feeling.
16Obviously, with your first album, you want to make sure you are really happy with it.
17The papers, you know, they're always gonna just make stuff up. They think it's in the public interest.
18[on being nominated for a British Male Solo Artist award] It's very nice to be nominated for something you enjoy doing anyway. But awards and things like that don't hold a lot of sentimental value to me. Having something in solid form telling me I'm the best or whatever - it wouldn't change the way I pursue music or the way I make records.
