PUMA BLUE

Puma Blue is the alias of singer/songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist Jacob Allen, based in London, UK.

Producing the music himself in his bedroom, Jacob has been recognised for his emotive falsetto, gritty lo-fi sound, particular visual aesthetic, as well as R&B, jazz and hip hop influences.
He first gained a following from his 2014 SoundCloud demo 'Only Trying 2 Tell U' and slowly cultivated a cult following from live shows around London & on the internet. His debut EP ‘Swum Baby’ was independently released in June 2017, shortly followed by two stand-alone singles, a re-recorded cut of 'Only Trying 2 Tell U' & live favourite 'Moon Undah Water'. His second EP ‘Blood Loss’ was released in November 2018, a more ambitious, circular body of work consisting of 8 tracks that blend into eachother.

The last year has seen his first shows, sold out, in Japan and South Korea, as well as his first US/Canadian tour.

Live he most often performs with his band, blending watery textures with soulful J Dilla influenced grooves and a vocal likened to Jeff Buckley and Chet Baker. Originally growing from the south-east London music scene, Jacob has frequently collaborated with friends and peers, including Lucy Lu, Biig Piig & Lava La Rue and honed his sound between intimate live shows and late-night producing sessions at home.

He has cited D'Angelo, Radiohead & John Frusciante among his biggest influences.
