Puma Blue is the alias of singer/songwriter, producer & multi-instrumentalist Jacob Allen, currently based between London & Atlanta. He released his debut album 'In Praise Of Shadows' in February 2021, featuring songs 'Velvet Leaves', 'Opiate' & 'Silk Print'. He produces the music himself at home, focusing the sound around his falsetto voice, soft lo-fi textures & dark, soulful drums. Originally growing from the south-east London music scene, Jacob has frequently collaborated with his friends & peers, including Biig Piig, Lava La Rue & long time friend Lucy Lu, honing his music between intimate live shows & late-night producing sessions. He has previously cited D'Angelo, Björk, Radiohead, Sade, Burial & John Frusciante amongst his biggest influences. His live shows are where his music truly comes alive, performing with a band of close friends & blending improvisation with sensual J Dilla influenced grooves & a vocal often likened to Jeff Buckley. His debut EP Swum Baby was released independently in June 2017. This followed popularity of Jacob's demo of 'Only Trying 2 Tell U' originally released in 2014 under his real name. A song he gave a proper release in early 2018 with new, delicately sparse production, alongside B-side 'Moon Undah Water'. Following this was a 2nd EP 'Blood Loss' in late 2018, and a live solo album recorded (unbeknownst to him) 'on his own. (Live at Eddie's Attic, Atlanta)'. Jacob also sometimes makes music under the monikers Ruby Bliels & Boss Nass.
