The Pop Standen style includes original works, mixed with a blend of "Country Rock Swinging Blues" all played with attitude.
From Yamba to Port Douglas, Christchurch to Port Hedland in the last few years Pop has appeared in hundreds of venues and played in more than 600 shows.
Born on the Atherton Tableland up in the rainforest covered mountains above Cairns, POP left school at 15 to become a Butcher. While completing his apprenticeship he bought his first guitar and started to teach himself the basics. He played for a short while in some small groups, in and around the Tablelands without getting too serious. After completing his apprenticeship and a successful couple of years playing rugby league in the North, he got the travel bug and headed for the "big lights".
