About a year and a half ago young Nottingham based singer Jake Bugg handed influential DJ Steve Lamacq a CD in the street and 18 months after Lamacq played his first demo, Bugg recorded his first BBC 6 Music Session.

The hotly-tipped singer-songwriter began playing guitar at the age of 12 and began writing songs when he turned 13. The recent release of his new single 'Lightning Bolt' has seen his profile increase, with the track receiving much airplay and critical acclaim. A few weeks ago he performed on 'Later... With Jools Holland' and has also been on tour supporting the brilliant Michael Kiwanuka.
