Roo Panes has been putting out songs since 2014, when his debut album Little Giant was released. It was followed by a number of EPs and albums, the latest being The Summer Isles from March 2023. Roo Panes plays 12-string guitar and has been described as a classic singer-songwriter, reminiscent of Donovan. His inspirations are Bob Dylan and Nick Drake, and he was born into an artistic family: his grandmother was a classical pianist and his mother theatre trained. His only Danish festival in 2023.
