Mal Blum (born July 7, 1988) is an American songwriter, musician, writer and performer from New York. They have described themself as "a #transgender #nonbinary #transsexual #pansexual #bisexual menace."[1]

They spent their early career promoting self-booked DIY solo tours and supporting musicians including Melissa Ferrick, Jenny Owen Youngs, and Jeffrey Lewis. In 2014, they signed to Don Giovanni records and announced they would be working on a new album produced by Marissa Paternoster of the band Screaming Females. Before that point, they had never worked with a record label and fan-funded or self-funded recording costs. After the Don Giovanni release of You Look a Lot Like Me in 2015, Blum began touring nationally as a three piece with a bassist and drummer, contributing to what critics called a "more developed but still gritty, punk" sound. They came out as trans and had top surgery during the four years they were working on their latest album, "Pity Boy", which released in 2019.[2]
