New Release & Video: Roo Panes – My Sweet Refuge

Roo Panes has released a video to go with latest single, My Sweet Refuge. The track is taken from his upcoming third album Quiet Man – out on 15 June

Featuring fan shot footage, he explains “We just thought it would be a fun idea to invite listeners to help make the video with short clips of what they considered to be their ‘refuge’. It was awesome to put together actually, and hear all the stories that came with clips! And really interesting to see how other people’s ideas brought the song to life in new ways”

Take a look below…

Roo Panes is a singer-songwriter of a similar ilk to contemporaries such as Ben Howard, Sufjan Stevens and Bon Iver in that he too creates emotive and timeless songs from a deeply personal place. However, whilst the aforementioned artists more often than not deal in the currency of melancholy, positivity is the backbone of Roo’s music. Each of his songs feel like celebrations of life, where tales of love and hope are weaved into his pastorally warm music created by acoustic guitar, piano melodies, string and horn sections

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 at Fluid Mastering

Forthcoming dates include…

21 June – Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London
21 July – Lamer Tree Festival
