It’s Jean-Philip Grobler’s birthday so in celebration, I’m sharing St. Lucia’s gem, “Elevate,” because why not? I’m also going to use this moment to mention that if you haven’t done yourself the favor of seeing St. Lucia perform live, you’re doing yourself a grave injustice. Especially if you frequent the NYC concert scene, if you pay close enough attention, you may even see Grobler and his wife, Patti Beranek, around at various shows because they’re chill people who support their musician friends. Anyways, happy birthday to you Jean-Philip!
