Jake Bugg

What do you do?
I get to travel the world and play music, it’s what I’ve always wanted to do - it’s the best thing ever.

Where are you from?
Clifton, Nottingham

Describe your style in three words?
“Keep it Simple” - for the shows.

You can make a record with anyone from history - who would it be?
It’d be sweet to jam with Jimi Hendrix.

Which British subculture means the most to you?
I guess the Grime scene, it was a big part of where I was from on the estate. It gets people out doing stuff and not just hanging around. Obviously, it’s nothing like what I do, but I certainly appreciate it for sure.

Your favourite guitar riff or solo of all time?
The beat from 'Use Me' by Bill Withers, that’s a great beat that is.
