Join Roo Panes on Tour this November as he celebrates the release of his new album 'Quiet Man'!
As a singer and songwriter, Roo Panes operates in the region where Ben Howard, Sufjan Stevens or Bon Iver would otherwise be located: He, too, is interested in emotional, timeless songwriting and also describes personal experiences in his songs. But what is always striking: While the mentioned colleagues often focus on melancholic moods, Roos music is based on a positive feeling. He almost always celebrates life in his songs when he focuses more on love and hope than on their counterparts - and underpins this optimism with warm sound carpets of acoustic guitar, piano, strings and brass. Roo Panes comes from Wimborne in Dorset. In addition to the three EPs Once (2012), Weight of Your World (2014) and Land of the Living (2013) released to date, he recently published the albums Little Giant (2014) and Paperweight (2016). A regular guest on the programme and on the playlists of British radio stations - among them Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), Annie Mac and Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Zane Lowe (Beats 1), Jo Whiley (BBC Radio 2) and Dermot O'Leary (BBC Radio 2) - are among his fans and supporters; for the latter he even recorded a live version. His songs record over 160 million streams on Spotify alone. The corresponding view numbers on YouTube/VEVO are well over 13 million views and only underline his international popularity. The new album Quiet Man was completely written by Roo Panes. The 29-year-old Brit recorded it at Deep Litter Studios in Start Point, Devon. His most recent live performances were a successful club tour in 2017 and several festivals, which he left behind with an enthusiastic audience. His show in Berlin in November is almost sold out and you can see him live again in spring 2019.
