He started playing guitar aged 12 after being introduced to the it by his uncle Mark and says his formative musical moment was hearing Don McLean’s Vincent on an episode of The Simpsons.
He originally played bass guitar in his cousin's band but by the age of 16 he had dropped out and was writing and performing his own songs influenced by the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Donovan, the Everly Brothers and Jimi Hendrix.
Bugg was chosen by the BBC to appear on their "Introducing" stage at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival aged 17, and because of this was given a contract by Mercury Records.
His songs were then placed on various BBC Radio play lists and one of them, "Country Song", was selected for use in a national TV beer commercial for Greene King IPA.
At the London 2012 Olympic games, Bugg's song "Lightning Bolt" was played during the build up to the 100m mens final.
He released his self-titled album in October 2012 and has released five singles including Two Fingers, Taste It and Trouble Town.
