Puma Blue is the alias of Jacob Allen, singer/songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist, based in South East London, UK.
He produces the music himself in his bedroom, and has been acclaimed for his voice, lo-fi sound, raw guitar playing, as well as jazz and hip hop influences. His debut EP ‘Swum Baby’ was released June 2017. This followed popularity of a demo release of 'Only Trying To Tell You', a song he released in 2014 under his own name. 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.
