The Pop Ups

Tell us about your music:

The Pop Ups have been a band since 2010.  We've been nominated for 2 GRAMMY awards for Best Children's Album, among others.   We perform with large scale props and puppets for a completely interactive experience. We like to write music with the ambitious goal of being educationally valuable for early childhood but completely relevant to adult tastes.  

About your songs (e.g., any unique instruments used, the origins of the lyrics, what inspired you, etc.):

This song was written to be drawn along to during the performance.  We wanted to write a song about colors, but also wanted it to tell a story that could be drawn along by listeners at home, or by one of us on stage!  It actually features an electric sitar-guitar.  A very interesting sound. 

What you hope children & families will get from this song:

We'd love for listeners to have a sense of wonder and be inspired to draw!
