Bass prodigy and burgeoning pop icon Blu DeTiger was born and raised in NYC. 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. Since then she's garnered millions of fans through her viral bass covers on TikTok. Now signed to Capitol Records, Blu released collaborations with Chromeo and Biig Piig and is currently working on her debut album. Forbes selected Blu for the digital cover of its “30 Under 30 2023” issue and began its music coverage with her remarkable story, noting, “DeTiger, 24, is one of the few women bass prodigies across the industry.”
