Today’s Artist of the Week is the one and only Blu DeTiger. Learn more about the artist below and check out our socials.
Blu DeTiger is a funky indie-pop artist that grew up in Manhattan and is the daughter of sculpture and painter Jonny Detiger. She started playing bass at age seven, taking rock and jazz theory lessons. By the time she hit her teenage years, Blu was taking inspiration from funk artists like Prince and Zapp as well as her mentors such as Steven Wolf who has worked with Alicia Keys and P!NK. She gained a following DJing in New York as she had a reputation of adding her own funky bass grooves to mixes. Other musicians, including Caroline Polacheck, Kitten, and the Knocks, took notice of her talent and took her with them on tours. On her music journey, Blu started turning heads with single releases but really made her mark with a viral video of her playing bass to Meghan Thee Stallion’s “Savage” in 2020. Later that year she released the single “Cotton Candy Lemonade” which made it on her 2021 EP How Did We Get Here?. She is currently crushing the 2022 festival circuit and made Jack Antonoff’s guest list for his SuperJam at Bonnaroo this year. She will bring the heat to Sacred Rose!
