When 23-year-old Brit troubadour Roo Panes sent his music and a few pics off to Burberry in London, little did he know that he would not only be chosen for their excellent Burberry Acoustic showcase on the famed fashion label's website -- he would also end up as the "face" of one of their seasonal ad campaigns. Fortunately, Panes offers a lot more than just nicely structured cheekbones. "Little Giant," following up a pair of promising EP's released in the U.K., wears its Nick Drake influences comfortably as Panes delivers one of the most enticing and sweetly mellow "howls" of recent memory.
