Bunbury Music Festival: She’s Poppy

Posted June 1, 2019 by shooting in Cincinnati, Music / 22 Comments

It’s Bunbury weekend! If you’ve been following my blog for a few years, then you probably remember me talking about Bunbury Music Festival, which takes place in Cincinnati, OH every summer. I was able to get media passes this year and it’s been a lot of fun. You’ll be seeing a lot of Bunbury posts this month for sure! Tomorrow, Sunday, June 2, is the final day and it should be a good one. I’ll be sharing more on the festival, the artists, the food, etc. in the coming days/weeks. For now, I thought I’d share a bit about the first artist I saw on Friday, May 31.

She’s Poppy

One of the things that I like about Bunbury is that it sometimes introduces me to new music, especially when I check out the artists beforehand. That was the case with Poppy, who I’d never heard of before. I listened to snippets of her music beforehand, but it was really her live act where I got to hear more of her stuff. It’s…different. Poppy is very eccentric/quirky/whatever you want to call it. I did enjoy some of her songs, and I think the “character” of Poppy is definitely unique and a bit fun (the singer’s real name is Moriah Rose Pereira).

I have to say though, that when she’d talk in between songs, it got a bit strange. I’m assuming she’s putting on a voice, because it’s a bit little kid/doll-like. I guess it’s all part of the act, and that’s cool, but it wasn’t really my thing. She has a lot of songs that deal with the internet, digital life, and that was kind of cool. I suppose this makes sense since her debut studio album is called Poppy.Computer.

I really did enjoy some of her songs, but she feels more like a performance artist – someone who does everything in character – and that’s not necessarily my favorite. However, she was a really fun way to start the Bunbury Music Festival.

  1. I haven’t heard of her. I have to figure out the music scene here. There’s nothing where I live but we’re about 1/2 hour 45 minutes from Portland and there are so many venues I’m not sure where to start lol

    I’m also spoiled. We had seats in FL so I never had to go early and wait in line.

  2. Outdoor music festivals are so fun! There’s one here we used to go to in this sculpture garden that was always amazing. I used to find a lot of new music that way too. I’m glad you found someone new you enjoy!

  3. I haven’t been to a music festival in ages but it really is such a great way to get introduced to new to you music. I’m intrigued by Poppy but the weird voice would probably be off-putting for me. I’m old fashioned in that I like my musicians to like sing 🤣even still this sounds like a great festie and hope you’re having a blast!

  4. That sounds like such a fun festival! My friend actually helped produce some of Poppy’s stuff, so that’s funny that you got to see her live. Can’t wait to hear more about the festival!
