Breakconvention Live Presents Roo Panes - Land of the Living EP Release Show: Roo Panes + Emily & The Woods
Breakconvention Live Presents Roo Panes - Land of the Living EP Release Show with Special Guest Support Emily & The Woods – Live.
Hailing from Wimborne, Dorset, Roo Panes is pleased to announce his new five-track EP ‘Land of the Living’ will be released on December 2nd through CRC Music.
Taken from the forthcoming EP, ‘Home from Home’ puts a strong emphasis on cherishing your family and friends. Roo plays with the idea of whether home is less a destination and more of a contentment with life: “I guess I don’t care about what, when or where, cos I’m starting to realize the question worth asking is who?”
Blending rich melodies with his warm, enveloping vocals, Roo’s songwriting process is raw and natural; the lyrics to lead track ‘Land of the Living’ came to him in a dream and ‘Little Giant’ was written within a few minutes.
Having quietly released two EPs last year including the acclaimed ‘Weight Of Your World’, Roo is currently working on his debut album – due early 2014. He has been expanding his sound and has added strings, harmoniums and all matter of acoustic rarities to his repertoire.

Hailing from Wimborne, Dorset, Roo Panes blends rich melodies with his warm, enveloping vocals. Roo’s musical education came in part from his grandmother, a classical concert pianist and the hymns of his local church and in part from his parents’ collection of Nick Drake and Bob Dylan records. Unsurprisingly, his surroundings have a strong influence on Roo as well. Like many of his favourite romantic poets before him, he effortlessly stitches the sense of beauty, landscape and space into his songs.

Emily and The Woods are a London- based band fronted by Emily Wood. The newly shaped London based outfit includes brother Benedict Wood on guitar, Dave Bush on drums and bass player Sam Brown. Since meeting at school, 'the boys' (Wood, Brown and Bush) have been playing as a collective for as long as they could pick up their instruments, with each of them going on to study music.
Developing in a way that far removes the band from the previously labelled 'singer-songwriter' tag, Emily and The Woods' newly honed sound blends luscious vocals with subtle electronic touches. Wood's pensive tone is at the heart of the music, backed by pounding drums, dark and driving bass-lines and shimmering guitars. The 2014 EP 'Then We Collide' followed lead single 'Helios' which gained plays across Gilles Peterson and Lauren Laverne's shows on BBC6 Music, XFM and BBC Radio 1, where it was named Zane Lowe's 'Hype Track'.
