At only 18 years old, Jake Bugg is Nottingham’s newest and most exciting musician - and what an inspiration he is.

Having started writing his own music at a mere 14 years old, he is the only solo musician from Nottingham to have ever topped the album charts and if that's not an achievement in itself, he is also recognised as the YOUNGEST British male to debut at No. 1 in album chart history.

His self-titled album described as “strong” “fresh” and “mature” beat Leona Lewis’ Glassheartand Mumford & Son’s Babel – a great result for Jake Bugg and the Nottingham music scene!

The album track listing includes:

  • Lightning Bolt
  • Two Fingers
  • Taste It
  • Seen it All
  • Simple as This
  • Country Song
  • Broken
  • Trouble Town
  • Ballad of Mr Jones
  • Slide
  • Someone Told Me
  • Note to Self
  • Someplace
  • Fire

Another recent success for Nottingham was the Branch Out Festival – a FREE festival which saw 50 talented local musicians perform on various stages throughout the City – it was such a hit with the Nottingham community and visitors to the area that it is hoped to become a regular event.
