Biography[edit]

June Panic first began performing and recording in 1990, and released his early material on cassette tape for the label 3 Out of 4 Records.[1] His first CD was the initial release for the label Secretly Canadian; he released several full-length albums with the label. In 2007, he released a triple album containing 48 songs he had originally recorded on a four track and released between 1991 and 1996.[2]

Panic plays every instrument on his releases.[3] His lyrics often contain intentionally twisted or idiosyncratic imagery, a trait noted by reviewers.[4][5]

Current live backup band:

Dom Marks - Drums/Percussion
Chris Nelson - Bass Guitar
Amanda Panic - Bass Guitar, Glockenspiel, Backup vocals
