Bio

Helena Pop play sweet anthemic folk songs. We just want you to have a good time, and for you to let others have a good time.

Helena Pop began when double bassist Ben Drury sat on a dingy basement stage in Canberra next to singer-songwriter Jack Livingston who was playing some sad songs. They've shared the stage with the likes of AJJ, Sugarcanes, Ceres and Jess Locke and were nominated for a NLMA in 2017 for Live Act of the Year.
