With three stunning EPs under his belt, Roo Panes is pleased to announce the first news of his debut album and a brand new single 'Tiger Striped Sky'. Due for release on 9th June on CRC Music, Tiger Striped Sky is taken from Roo's debut album which will be released in autumn.
Tiger Striped Sky highlights Roo's talent for well-crafted songs. Roo's musical education came in part from his grandmother, a classical concert pianist, the hymns of his local church and in part from his parent's collection of Nick Drake and Bob Dylan records. His songwriting has a subtle power to it, his process raw and Roo has been pleasantly surprised to discover covers of his own tracks surfacing on YouTube already a testament to their resonance.
Hailing from a small town in Dorset, Roo's surroundings have a strong influence on his music as well. Like many of his favourite romantic poets before him, he effortlessly stitches the sense of beauty, landscape and space into his songs.
