St. Lucia
St. Lucia
Originally from Johannesburg, South Africa, Jean-Philip Grobler grew up performing with the Drakensberg Boys Choir School, learning everything from Bach to minimalist opera. St. Lucia was born out of a moment in early 2010 when Grobler was looking to the past for inspiration. Growing frustrated with a rock project that was starting to feel forced, he delved back into the music that had first inspired him: Fleetwood Mac, Peter Gabriel, Madonna and other songs from his youth.

When The Night, the synth-pop outfit’s full-length, expands upon St. Lucia’s unique brand of dreamy, nostalgic pop. The band recently embarked on a headline tour of the US, selling out all 23 shows (including 4 shows in New York City). And this spring, St. Lucia will serve as direct support on Foster The People’s April/May tour.

Grobler remains heavily involved in projects outside of St. Lucia, serving as producer for the debut album by Brooklyn-based labelmates HAERTS, remixing songs for bands including Passion Pit, Foster the People and Charli XCX, and collaborating with DJs ranging from The Knocks to RAC. St. Lucia has recently toured with Ellie Goulding and Charli XCX, performed at festivals including Lollapalooza, Governors Ball and Firefly, not to mention shared stages with fun., Two Door Cinema Club, Young The Giant, The Shins and more.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Russ Manning joined Twin Shadow in early 2010. While on tour across Europe and Australia Russ began to write songs in 3.5 star hotel rooms and began mixing the songs in the van. By 2012 Russ had discovered a clear voice of New York in the evening; an alter ego exploration called Rush Midnight. New York label Cascine released his debut EP +1 with production support from George Lewis Jr. With influences spanning from Minneapolis '80s funk group Change, to The Police and Sade, Rush Midnight currently writes songs in his bedroom with the hope of one day writing in the outdoors.
