Panes gained a wide audience in 2012 after participating in a campaign for Burberry as he joined actress Gabriella Wilde as Burberry label's new campaign star.[2] The contract also included recording music for Burberry Acoustic and modelling.

Panes received the nickname 'Roo' after falling into a river as a child. It was also a homage to a Winnie-the-Pooh character who met a similar fate while playing a game called Poohsticks. He went to university and graduated with a degree in theology,[3] and cites Jesus as an inspiration.[4]
