Music Mondays: It all started in a "Starry, Starry Night"



Jake Bugg, also known as the person who introduced me to good music, is for me, one of the best musicians out there right now. I started listening to Jakey back in 2012, so two years ago, and to be honest I didn't liked him at first... at all. Now here I am, watching his Reading gig for the third time this afternoon.

I still remember that night at like 23:00 when I found out that Spotify had an app called We Are Haunted, which had a "new artits" tag. I clicked it and there was Jake, he wasn't even in the top ten. The first time I listened to Lightning Bolt I was like WTF (understand that I came from listening to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, no offense).

Then, after some time, I looked him up on youtube and I came across his mini-performance in a radio station where he sang Saffron. I inmediatly started watching all the videos there were available at that time. The next day I was buying his first album.


Bugg started playing guitar after listening to Starry, Starry Night in The Simpsoms when he was twelve, then he started writing at fourteen. By the age of 17 he was invited to play at the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury. In 2011 he signed with Mercury Records, and by now he has two albums in the market while he is working on the third one.

Now after a paragraph full of facts, I'd like to add my personal opinion. Jake Bugg's music has changed the way I see life and how I see myself. Back in 2012 (worst year for me), I used to put my headphones on and cry while listening to Note to Self on replay till I stopped. I also started to play my guitar again after his album was delivered. I started taking chances and also spending my time on things I love, like music.

Don't ask me why, or how because I don't know. Jake's music has made me smile more than I could ever thank him. His songs have helped me in ways I couldn't think were possible, and I'm incredibly thankful for that (so probably this won't be the last post you read about Jake on my blog).

So please, lovely people on the Internet, give it a try and listen to his music because it is incredibly awesome.


FINAL NOTE TO JAKE BUGG: I don't know where I would be without your music so thank you. Thank you for making me rely on music again. Thank you for loving Oasis as much as I do. Thank you for doing so much without even knowing it. Please if you can and want, don't stop making music, like ever (ok maybe at some point).

PD: Oh shit, things got cheesy, sorry... Btw, I'm not a stalker
PD1: THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING AND READING (if you still actually reading my blog)
PD2: Back to the old format in case you've noticed.
