Since releasing his debut album ‘Little Giant’ (2014) to critical acclaim, Roo Panes has racked up an excess of 170 million plays on Spotify and over 15+ million views on Youtube / VEVO. He has been described by Uncut as a ‘Britfolk pin up’ whose music ‘taps a deep well of folk heritage.’ Q Magazine has said Panes finds ‘a positive message in thoughts best left in the dark of night.’ His sophomore album ‘Paperweights’ (2016) is equally truthful, with a sound matured, richer but no less authentic.
Roo’s long-awaited third album was released in June 2018 and sees Roo once again work with Chris Bond - a man with numerous production accolades including Ben Howard.
Roo Panes’ music is succinct, honest songwriting, from a place of deep personal expression, resonating with universal truths and values. His is a deep voice, one that sounds aged beyond its years, and yet, it’s telling of timeless stories, endless heartache and forever love. It asks that we all find the right way to see the world around us.
