Music Monday: Amsterdam ‘Lightning Bolts’

Amsterdam gave the world a Bugg of a musician (bad joke?)

Nottingham singer songwriter, Jake Bugg, is a sensation – not just saying that because I think he’s the savior of modern music or anything.

His debut single ‘Lightning Bolt’ was released last April from his BRIT nominated album (Jake Bugg) with the video, directed by Michael Holyk, posted on YouTube one year ago on Saturday (18 May 2013).

Since then Jake (19) has went from strength to strength performing in sold out venues, including Nottingham’s famous Rock City, and to festival revelers worldwide.

Singles released from his debut album include ‘Seen It All’, ‘Trouble Town’ and three others which are all infused with melodic tunes, Bugg’s unique singing voice and most importantly truthful lyrics that showcase how important it is to have this singer/songwriter in the business.

Working on his second album (eeep!) with Red Hot Chilli Pepper’s drummer, Chad Smith, and legendary producer Rick Rubin (Dixie Chicks, Green Day) there is more to come from the talented musician.

Dubbed the East Midland’s Bob Dylan, Bugg has a lot left to offer, and prove in some ways, so sit back and enjoy the Indie – Folk smash that is ‘Lightning Bolt’.

*I also just spent an eventful weekend in Amsterdam where this beauty was filmed (some sections in Brussels and Belgium) hence the post!*
