J. Laser is a project lead by Composer/Producer Jordan Lawlor in dystopian Los Angeles, California
Joined by a small family of collaborators (brother/drummer Jamie Lawlor, wife/bassist Laura Murphy) J. Laser aims to fuse the modern means of electronic production and sonic manipulation with the warmth and humanity of the classic song craft and instrumentation found prominent in the eras gone past.
You may remember Lawlor from his previous tenure with M83. At age 18, he was drafted by the French Dream-Pop outfit as a Multi-Instrumentalist on the ‘Hurry up, we’re dreaming tour’, beckoning a perilous leap from mild-mannered home-schooler to archetypal rock magus in a matter of months.
He spent the following years with the group, touring globally and contributing as a creative asset. Most notably on his ethereal, sovereign composition ‘Walkway Blues’ which was sited as a standout track on the band’s labyrinthine 2016 album ‘Junk’.
After a short lifetime austere studio contemplation and kinetic live performances, he returns to the arena under his own moniker. Determined to disrupt the mass hallucination we call culture with a fresh and luminous pallet of sound.
