Roo & The Howl - MileHI Music

Roo & The Howl

The word “roo” derives itself from the old english word for “quiet”, which when combined with “howl” provides a startlingly accurate description of Bekah Wagner, the Colorado songstress behind Roo & The Howl. Presently putting the finishing touches on the material for her debut album (due out early 2014), Roo’s music brings together sorrow and beauty in the best traditions of indie, folk and Americana.

Initially playing under her own name, Roo had a busy 2012 releasing an EP and playing a slew of shows including an opening act for Seattle band Ivan & Alyosha at the Hi Dive in Denver. Recently named by Pigeons and Planes as one of “12 Female Artists You Should Know” alongside fellow artists like Daughter and Laura Mavula, Roo is drawing listeners in with spare, stirring music that swells the emotions and pleases the ear.
