Year-End Favorites Pt. IV: Jake Bugg-A Songwriter Springs Fully Formed from the Bosom of His Own Muse...

Jake Bugg is another 'kid' (19) from the U.K. who seems to have just sprung fully matured as an artist from the bosom of his own muse.
There are going to be obvious stylistic comparisons to Bob Dylan,Johnny Cas...Joe Strummer but in my opinion, the greatest comparison is in the level of talent.
Jake Bugg as his young age is just laying down some serious wordsmithing. I have been writing on an almost daily basis for over 30 years. I know the process of songwriting-it is tough. It is especially tough to not sound inept or pretentious. Being that age and and writing in a style that doesn't make you sound like a know-it-all punk kid is damn near impossible. Jake Bugg was just born to write songs and found his voice young.
You can read and see more about him here and you can also look forward to hearing more from him on our station and I suspect everywhere else in the coming year.
Enjoy! Cheers! C.
