Puma Blue is the alias of producer, songwriter & vocalist, Jacob Allen. Since the release of debut EP Swum Baby in 2017, he’s quietly amassed a global cult-following, counting artists including BTS, The Marias and Charlotte Day Wilson as fans and picking up support from media heavyweights The Guardian, Dazed, i-D and the Fader and DJ’s at BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, 6Music and KCRW along the way. He has sold out headline performances in Los Angeles, New York, London, Paris, Seoul and Tokyo as well as producing and co-writing for artists including Biig Piig and Lava La Rue. His debut album In Praise of Shadows, described by NME as “a brief moment of relief for those lost in the darkness – ****”, was released February 5th 2021 via Blue Flowers/PIAS.


We exist in our own world and we’re trying to create a wave.” That’s how vocalist Adam Kain describes Cruza. He’s joined on the band’s quest by guitarist Charity Joy Brown and multi-instrumentalist AJ Roth as they channel influences from the rock and R&B worlds into a series of dreamy and unique transmissions. Mixing heavy basslines and melodic guitar loops inspired by artists like Unknown Mortal Orchestra and King Krule with the soulful vocals befitting your favourite late-night playlist, Cruza exist in a liminal space. Neither alt kids nor R&B stars, they cherry pick from the past and present to create an atmospheric lane all of their own.
