Since releasing his debut album Little Giant to critical acclaim, Roo Panes has racked up an excess of 120 million plays on Spotify and over 6 million YouTube views. 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, released in 2016, is equally truthful, with a sound matured, richer but no less authentic.
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.
