He also counts Bob Dylan and Hank Williams as major influences. In an interview with Digital Spy, Bugg said that he "grew up on hip-hop" and was "really into Eminem and 50 Cent". He has also cited Noel Gallagher as an influence.

When asked about his songwriting process, Bugg told American Songwriter: "It just comes. I don't sit down with the intent of writing a song about a certain subject. It just comes out, and I go with it." He has also said that he is "not very good at writing songs on the guitar", preferring to write on piano or keyboard instead.

In terms of the lyrical content of his songs, Bugg has said: "I don't really think too much about what I'm writing. I just write it and see what comes out, really. And then if people can take something from that, then great."
