Born in NYC, Blu DeTiger was drawn to the bass early on. She took the stage at CBGB, prior to the iconic club’s closing, when she was only seven. By 17, she was a staple in the city’s creative scene. While playing in a multitude of bands, she also distinguished herself as a DJ, playing live bass during her sets. By early 2020, while also writing and producing her own music, Blu was cutting her teeth touring around the world with a variety of artists. After catching Jack Antonoff's eye, she played “Saturday Night Live” with Bleachers and joined him at Bonnaroo's Superjam.

Blu’s releases have racked up over 170 million streams to date, including the hit single “Figure It Out,” which was featured on her independent debut EP How Did We Get Here? and charted at AAA radio, made NPR Music’s Top 40 Songs of the Year, and garnered attention from i-D, Paper, Variety and Flaunt Magazine, among many others. Her musicianship and inspiring personality have been spotlighted in campaigns for such brands as DKNY, Levi’s, Fender, Smashbox and American Eagle.
