The English Singer/song writer Jake Bugg makes his big American break through with his new album Shangri La. Shangri La is also the name of Rick Rubin’s recording studio, he produced the album.  What a privilege it must have been to work with a legend. He also had Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Drummer) play a major roll on the album as well.

Jake grew up in Nottingham where he picked up a guitar at the age of twelve. His influences are The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Cash. These influences show vividly in his music.

Jake dropped out of school at the age of sixteen to pursue his music career. He hasn’t looked back since.


At the age of 19, he now has two albums under his belt and growing cult following.


They way I see it, for a young teenager his love for music and old school feel is remarkable. Catching the attention of Rick Rubin is one of the biggest compliments you can have. Rick doesn’t work with artist unless he really wants to.

Week in Review Nov. 19th: Chris Brown, Daughtry, Hunger Games, Webbie, Slim Thug and more

If Johnny Cash, Tom Petty and The Beatles join together to have a child Jake Bugg would be it. I don’t think he’ll find his way to the bright lights of pop culture, however I don’t think that’s what he’s going for.


I do expect to see a lot more from Jake in the coming years. His sound and style will bring him a large cult following and at some point in his career he will score the big hit of a lifetime.


Jake Bugg is definitely an artist to watch.

Marcus J. Clark is not a human being, but an experience. An energy that revolves around art, music, comic books and Film. A Gift to the free world containing supernatural artistic powers to transport every open mind to the contradiction that is The Savage Wonderland.
