About this Event

PUMA BLUE

Puma Blue is the alias of South Londoner Jacob Allen, who has been delicately honing his purposefully paradoxical sound, blending downtown jazz sax lines with J Dilla grooves and a heart-wrenching vocal akin to Jeff Buckley, Chet Baker and Billie Holliday. This blend is completed by Allen’s punk-inspired grit and the ferocity of his live performances, backed by a four-piece band, spewing out tortured love songs and sensual rhythms topped by his haunting falsetto vocals.

as this mix may sound, it feels as if it just spilled from his mouth one afternoon, sounding simultaneously like the soundtrack to a black&white b-movie or skyscraper sunsets and yet freshly un-earthed, contemporary yet classic.

Currently working on his debut EP, Puma Blue is the dark, funk-punk-soul-jazz poet we’ve been waiting for.

Westerman

as Westerman, British singer/songwriter Will Westerman makes low-key, atmospheric indie pop with a cerebral bent à la Steely Dan, one of his influences. At first recording mostly with acoustic guitar, light effects, and percussion, the Londoner's earliest singles appeared on streaming sites throughout 2016. He made his label debut on Blue Flowers Music with the Call and Response EP in October 2017. Featuring more textured arrangements that added keyboards and electric guitar, it marked a shift away from gentle folk-pop into a space between '70s soft rock and contemporary bedroom electro-pop. He reinforced the transition by having his friend Bullion produce the two-track single "Confirmation"/"I Turned Away," which arrived in early 2018
