Puma Blue is the alias of Jacob Allen, singer/songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist, based in South East London, UK. (b. Feb 24, 1995)
He produces the music himself in his bedroom, and has been acclaimed for his voice, lo-fi sound, raw guitar playing, and jazz and hip hop influences. His debut EP ‘Swum Baby’ was released June 2017.
Live he performs with a four piece band, blending downtown jazz sax lines with J Dilla influenced grooves and a heart-wrenching vocal akin to Jeff Buckley and Billie Holliday. This blend is combined with a punk-inspired grit, ferocity and looseness.
Also notable are his dubby textures, poetic lyrics (often with dark themes) and signature 'chorus' guitar tone.
As well as Puma Blue, Jacob also produces beats and hip-hop under the moniker Boss Nass (formerly Twisted Loco Nightclub and Butch Slims) and avant-garde/ambient works under the name Ruby Bliels.
