Jake Bugg Is No Justin Bieber
Super cute Jake Bugg has been described as looking like a "hooligan" version of Justin Bieber, but any similarity to the Biebs definitely ends there, especially when it comes to his sound.
The 18-year-old British singer/songwriter is poised to have a big year riding the latest wave of retro folk music that is obviously influenced by Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and other revered artists of that era. Bugg has already performed on Conan O'Brien's TBS show and has been making the rounds on a current tour that included dates in LA, SF and NY. He's also lined up to perform at SXSW and most of the big summer music festivals for 2013.
Not all gays will be able to get into Jake Bugg's music, but his adorable thick British accent and baby face are undeniably irresistible while watching him perform live and in his music videos. Check out a recent BBC Radio session, as well as the official video releases for two of his latest hit songs, "Lightning Bolt" and "Two Fingers".
