Brighton warmly welcomes Jake Bugg back to the Dome
Announcing his upcoming album (the first with RCA records), singer-songwriter Jake Bugg is coming to Brighton Dome as part of his regional UK acoustic tour. With a brand new song, Kiss Like the Sun, Bugg is fresh from an appearance at Coachella 2019 with DJ duo Camelphat.
Jake Bugg was introduced to music via his uncle at age 12 and started writing his own songs a year later. He was featured on BBC Introducing in 2011, a program supporting “unsigned, undiscovered, and under-the-radar musicians”. Bugg then went on to win his first award for “Best New Act” during the 2013 Q Awards. He was also nominated for a “British Breakthrough Act” during the Brit Awards in the same year.
At just 26 years old, Jake Bugg has performed as the introducing act for many renown singers. This includes stars such as Lana Del Rey and Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds. He has also been present for quite a few festivals such as Glastonbury and Osheaga (Montreal, Canada), to name a few. Magazine Clash describes his music as “precocious talent fusing retro folk with blistering contemporary rock riffs”. Several of his songs have been used as soundtracks for some of the past decade’s most popular movies. These include Simple at This in 2012’s “The Fault in our Stars” and Me and You in “Dumb and Dumber 2”.
His music, a combination of rock and folk sounds with elements of pop, reflects his musical upbringing. It expresses the feelings of every broken heart in the sweetest way possible. This is especially seen in his most recent albums, On My One (2016) and Hearts That Strain (2017), described as “much darker” than his earlier work.
Jake Bugg will perform at Brighton Dome on 3rd March 2020, doors opening at 7pm. Book your tickets now for an acoustic evening of rock and folk sounds that promise to mend what is broken.
