Nottingham’s Jake Bugg exploded onto the UK music scene in 2011 after an invitation to perform on Glastonbury’s “BBC Introducing Stage” swiftly led to a contract with the illustrious Mercury Records (Elton John, the Killers, Bon Jovi). Since then, Bugg’s released four albums, toured the world, and worked with some of music’s most notable influencers including Mike D, Rick Ruben, and most recently, Dan Auerbach who Bugg had gotten to know when he opened for the Black Keys on a handful of shows during their 2014 tour. Auerbach produced Bugg’s latest album Hearts That Strain, which Bugg is currently supporting with an acoustic tour. He brought his stripped-down Britpop sound to our Studio 1A during his Austin stop, and in addition to a new tune, he treated our audience to a couple of Bugg staples. Cheers!
Check out the rest of the Studio 1A here.
