South African-born and Brooklyn-based Jean-Philip Grobler, aka St Lucia, has led the kind of life everyone who's ever dreamed
of becoming a rock star has dreamed. Born in Johannesburg and spending most of his childhood travelling the world as part
of the Drakensberg Boys Choir School, Grobler has the musical resume other artists long for. Having worked with top producers
and other industry hit-makers, St. Lucia now sits at the head of the table, making the music he's always wanted to and loving
every minute of it. And fans can't get enough of his sensational sound. Get your St. Lucia concert

Jean-Philip Grobler is even more than just a radical synth-pop artist. His equal use of electronic and non-electronic instrumentation
makes him a prolific musician, drawing on the past and the present to create the sound of the future. There are prominent
piano chords, wandering guitar riffs and the odd sax solo littered throughout his sound, but with programmed beats providing
the heartbeat and earthly synths bringing the soul, the South African musical genius, who releases music under the moniker
St. Lucia, does creates songs of passionate electronic beauty.
St. Lucia has been making music since he was 11, and he's evolved through a series of genres and techniques to arrive at
the inimitable style he's arrived at now that has the critics in awe and the audiences on the their feet. It hasn't been an
easy road for St. Lucia, though. He spent three years in England studying music and more after that perfecting his sound and
landing on his musical signature. Now that he's found his groove, the grooves just spill out of him. Everyone is waiting with
baited breath to see what this hyper talented wonder kid is going to do next, and with tickets from StubHub, you can see him
perform his latest hits live!
So gifted is St. Lucia that Columbia Records signed on for his debut self-titled mini album and released it to critical
success and waves of audience enthusiasm. Few other musicians can claim their work from the beginning was so widely regarded
and embraced, which is just another sign of how incredible a musician St. Lucia is. Now that his full-length album is out
and already being heralded as the next big thing in music, the future is wide open for the South Africa native. Living in
Brooklyn clearly agrees with the brilliant musician, and everyone is itching to hear what he'll come up with next!
Although he's come a very long way since his days in the boys choir, Jean-Philip Grobler, aka St. Lucia, manages to weave
in his past as his beautiful voice melts easily around the immaculately layered music he creates today. He's occasionally
complemented on the mic by his girlfriend Patricia Beranek, a member of St. Lucia's live band, and together they breathe life
into the songs and music of Grobler's sensational sounds. Check out StubHub to get your St. Lucia rock tickets see this master musician at work!
