Puss N Boots first formed in 2008 as a live band performing around Brooklyn. With a repertoire anchored in Americana, country, folk, pop and rock, the band became an outlet for Jones, Dobson and Popper to switch instruments and allowed them to showcase a different side of themselves than on their various solo and side projects. After years of live performances, the trio decided to make a full-length album which resulted in their 2014 debut debut No Fools, No Fun (Blue Note). Comprised of originals and covers, studio recordings and live performances, the album was praised by Rolling Stone, Paste, American Songwriter and led to TV performances on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and CBS This Morning. The group has appeared at numerous festivals including the Clearwater Festival, Green River Festival, and the Newport Folk Festival, and they opened for Neil Young during his tour in July 2015. Earlier this year, Puss N Boots performed “The Grass Is Blue” at the GRAMMY MusiCares charity event honoring Person of the Year Award recipient Dolly Parton. Last month they released an Amazon Original cover of “The Grass is Blue”, which is available to stream on Amazon Music HD, a new premium quality tier streaming audio from Amazon Music. Jones, Dobson and Popper have also returned to the studio to work on new original music for their next album.
