George Ezra: more charming than Jake Bugg

Saturday, 1 November, 2014

Sony Music is placing a big bet on George Ezra, the 21-year old singing-songwriting University of Bristol dropout. But it could be a winning wager. Ezra made news recently when it was announced that he’d sold out his February 2015 UK tour in just 10 minutes. There’s a number one album, too, and this catchy top 10 single, as well. It’s all fuelling the buzz. No doubt, he is very marketable: the looks, the swagger, the wryness, the honeyed voice. What’s missing, though, is the compositional talent of Jake Bugg. There’s more to the music game than charm. That said, charm is not such a bad attribute.
