Parlour Panther

Parlour Panther is a bilingual Vancouver-based Indie/Rock band consisting of four individuals: queer power couple Stephanie Hodgins & Lee Newman with groove masters Charles Wesley & Toga D'Hoore. The band creates music in English and French that is full of rich harmonies, electric guitars, synths, and phat bass n’ rhythms. 

Parlour Panther is a trio that could be defined as gorgeous grit rock. These queers work hard to bring you music that inspires your heart, while also pulsing through your limbs - with dynamic performance, electric guitar, synth, infectious dance grooves and powerful vocals in overlapping harmony.

Band members:
stephanie hodgins - creator, vocal, electric guitar, producer, mixer, wizard.
lee newman - creator, vocal, synth, mastermind.
charles wesley - drums, vocal, prolific song contributor.

Parlour Panther's tour and festival circuit 2017 was an explosive success. Parlour Panther was the "band to see" buzzing around festival grounds at ArtsWells, MoM Festival and Woodstove Festival this year.

Steph is currently hard at work finishing up their first full length album “Hot Magic” which will be released in the next few months. Parlour Panther has also been writing new music and will begin recording again in the new year. Their EP “Foreign Lust” is full of danceable tunes and is available on all streaming platforms. 

"Fearless love.
East Van Queers, with tones delight
Persist through struggle, blaze of dance magic
From deep wells of hope we drink tonight
Harmonious voices, rhythmic bodies
Grit rock, flare, atmosphere groove
Parlour Panther, cuddle and kill
Feel pulsing hearts, let us be moved" (Maxim Cossette, 2017).
