Jean-Philip Grobler, aka ST. LUCIA, originally from Johannesberg, began his musical journey performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School around the world, until he left the creative "small pond" of South Africa for England, where he spent three years studying music in Liverpool. He ended up in New York City, where he started working on the tracks that would ultimately turn into his self titled debut release on Neon Gold.
The atmospheric quality of St. Lucia's electronic pop is powerful, with the musician's global travels and history of secret hideaways effortlessly passed onto the audience through his dreamy, shimmering synths.
Joining the tour are Australian quintet GOLD FIELDS, who will debut songs from their forthcoming LP, Black Walls, which will be released in February 2013 through Astralwerks.
