Roo Panes fell into a river as a child, earning him the nickname of a similarly unfortunate Winnie-the-Pooh character. He grew up playing classical music in Dorset, but got bored of reading from sheet music, and discovered a love of improvisation. He crafts tender folk songs with a rich, husky tenor. He is a male model. And as soon as the din of that fire alarm currently going off in your reproductive organs has died down, you should listen to his new album, Paperweights. Because, to top it off, he may also be responsible for the finest folk album of the decade.
