With three stunning EPs under his belt, Roo Panes promoting his debut album and new single Tiger Striped Sky at the Ferret on Sunday.
Roo’s rich melodies are underpinned by beautiful string arrangements, thanks in part to his grandmother, a classical concert pianist, the hymns of his local church and his parents’ collection of Nick Drake and Bob Dylan records.
Hailing from a small town in Dorset, Roo’s surroundings have a strong influence on his music as well.
Part of a close family, Roo’s twin sister Deborah lends vocals at live shows and his sister Lucy creates all his artwork.
Blackpool’s Jess Harwood and flamenco-folk virtuoso Tom Metcalfe complete the line-up.
