according to Happy Magazine in Australia, “If you’re not already familiar with this name, it’s definitely time you changed that".
At 21, Panther flourishes within the Wellington music scene with his upcoming EP taking him as far as London to work with Stuart Hawkes (Sheeran, Winehouse).
Curating an eclectic range of up-and-coming Kiwi features, his debut EP, ‘Retrospect’, circles around the highs and lows of adolescent heartbreak, and is an honest concentration of Panther’s effortless and endearing musicianship.
Wellington songwriter Jack Panther started writing music as a young teen and now – at 21 – he's about to release his debut EP Retrospect.
He performs 'Club Bathroom Stall' (the second single from the EP) and chats to Jesse Mulligan.
In the past, Jack has worked with other vocalists but is getting more comfortable with his own voice as he gets older, he tells Jesse Mulligan.
"A debut is always a bit daunting, though."
He says it was a friend who came up with the performance name 'Jack Panther'.
"I was sitting in a car one day with a couple of friends, we were just driving along, and my friend Ben just said to me 'Oh, what about 'Jack Panther'?
"It kind of grew on me after a while and since then it's kind of stuck."
