Popped Music began life in 2010 as a project to keep one foot in the door of the new music scene. In 2014 things began to pick up and the site has become loved by many and is growing week on week.
The adventure is only beginning!
Here’s a little more about us, the people who run this thing, write for it and shoot for it!
