Fresh New Music: Jake Bugg
Brit singer Jake Bugg will turn 20 years old in February and already has an amazing career.

Bugg was chosen by the BBC to appear on their "Introducing" stage at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival aged 17, and because of this was given a contract by Mercury Records. His first album was nominated for 2013 Album of the Year and won Best New Artist. His song Lightning Bolt was chosen for a Gatorade commercial. This young man has a bright future.
