New Release: Roo Panes – Quiet Man / My Sweet Refuge

Following the release late last year of the brooding single A Message to Myself, Roo Panes has announced details of his third album Quiet Man, out on 15 June

In addition, Roo has shared the gorgeously uplifting and stirringly romantic My Sweet Refuge – take a listen below…

Whilst preferring to let the listener interpret his songs, Roo has described his new album as having “a general theme of encouragement”. From the more introspective and personal A Year In A Garden and aforementioned A Message to Myself, which are about personal growth, to Ophelia, a song as staggeringly beautiful as its name with a heart-warming message of encouragement to a loved one (“Take heart my love as when I see you I see hope”), and current single My Sweet Refuge, which wraps a loved one in a blanket of appreciation and love. At the more robust spectrum of the album with its rousing horn section is Warrior, which is lyrically a spirited show of confidence from one friend to another, whilst on the gentler end of the record comes the tender romanticism of Quiet Man, picked as the album’s title track as the song emerged from what Roo describes as “a place of stillness, peace and contentment”. Words that summarise the album as a whole

Quiet Man was written by Roo Panes and recorded in Deep Litter Studios at Start Point, Devon and produced by Chris Bond, mixed by Boe Weaver and mastered by Tim Debney
