This performance saw him signed by Mercury Records and by 2012, when he was just 17-years-old, he had released his first album, Jake Bugg.

The album went straight to Number One in the UK and has sold almost 750,000 copies, meaning it has gone double platinum.

His career continued to go from strength to strength, as after his album release he served as the support act for Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds at the Belsonic Music Festival in Belfast.

The young performer began working with Johnny Cash collaborator Rick Rubin, alongside his previous songwriting partner Iain Archer and released his second album, Shangri-La.
