Jae Laffer is recognised as one of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters with his band The Panics.
The Panics built a solid fan base in Australia as a consequence of relentless touring and radio support before relocating to Manchester, England. They went on to receive accolades from several contemporary artists including the likes of Kings of Leon.
The Panics won an ARIA and Triple J ‘Album of the Year’ for Cruel Guards and the single Don’t fight it became a Triple J hit anthem and was used to dramatic effect in TV series “Underbelly”. The album is considered a classic at home and abroad.
In 2013 Jae wrote and recorded his first solo album When the iron glows red playing the majority of instruments produced the recording. The album has an overall theme; dealing with the challenges of life and work while balancing it with trying to realise your dreams and ambitions.
The Panic’s music has also been featured in many films and TV, showcasing the sheer depth and beauty of their rich catalogue of songs.
