ROO is an electric Indie/Folk/Swamp/Blues duo from Brisbane, Australia. The music is raw, honest and made with love. ROO is comprised of Roo (Vocals/Guitar/Songwriter) and Dean Hamilton (Drums/Percussion/Vocals).
First formed in 2003, ROO performed their original music in Brisbane under the names CORI and MAJESTY. ROO was reformed in 2014 with a view to recording in 2015 and performing in early 2016.
ROO released a DIY recording of 7 original songs in 2015 LOVE ROO XO and will release their 2016 DIY recording LOVE YOU II on Friday 17th of June at Beetle Bar.
ROO’s aim is to write, record and perform interesting original music and have it heard; and to support other musicians and associated artists to be seen/heard/get involved.
