In 2018, singer songwriter Roo Panes released his album ‘Quiet Man’ to critical acclaim. A performer often likened to Nick Drake, he promoted the album with an extensive run of live dates including a sold out show at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
A year on, ‘Quiet Man’ is to receive a deluxe reissue. The new edition includes three previously unreleased studio tracks – including the new single ‘Commentator’ (listen below) and six live tracks recorded at the Shepherd’s Bush gig.
The new single is very much classic Roo in that it blends intricate guitar work with a soft and understated vocal that accentuates the fragility within the performer’s talent.
In addition, Panes has confirmed a new run of live shows to promote the reissue, including one at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London at the end of the year:
