The band has grown out of a collaboration with Warsaw-based, Seattle singer, Jules Jones. Jules and I met a couple of years ago when she moved to Warsaw to work in the film industry here, producing, and writing, as she does, with her partner, Sam. It took us quite some time to get our act together but towards the end of 2018, we released a Christmas single on too many fireworks together as Milton and Jones.
It had always been the plan to bring together a band to play retro, 60s-tinged power-pop, so we did just that; inviting drummer Tomek Dorobczyński and guitarist Maurycy Bór to join us.
We have called ourselves Pop-up Books, and we have begun to rehearse some music that Jules and I have written, alongside a couple of my own solo songs that I’ve ‘donated’ to the band.
You can find us @wearepopupbooks on most of the socials, and our website is http://www.wearepopupbooks.com.
I’m looking forward to seeing where the band might go in the future. In the next few weeks we will release our debut single, and we’ll perform at the TEDxWarsaw 10th anniversary event.
After that… new songs, new recordings, and many new shows, I hope.
