Jake Bugg released his stunning new album ‘Hearts That Strain’, recorded in Nashville, September 1st on Virgin EMI. He visited Inchyra as part of a solo acoustic album tour of the UK.
Working with Grammy Award winning producer David Ferguson and Matt Sweeney, Jake recorded the album in Nashville with some of the best players in the history of popular music. As part of American Sound Studio’s legendary house band The Memphis Boys, Gene Chrisman and Bobby Woods provided the chops on such pivotal records as Dusty In Memphis, In The Ghetto, Suspicious Minds and Dark End Of The Street, cutting their teeth in sessions with Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin and Dionne Warwick.
“They’re old guys but they’re amazing,” Jake says. “It was ten to five and then that’s it. They'd pack up and we’d done two or three tunes. It was a mad vibe being from England and meeting these absolute legends and then cutting some tracks with them.”
To coincide with the album’s release Jake stepped out for this intimate solo acoustic tour in November. We were delighted to welcome him to Inchyra for one of only four Scottish dates on the tour. The Byre welcomed the largest audience to date for a truly memorable night - with support from rising star Georgie.
