Says The Petras vocalist Brielle LeBlanc, “We all have something that’s special about us, something that makes us shine. And we’ve all had the feeling of being misunderstood, judged, or envied for it. This song is about not being afraid to shine… to celebrate the “Sapphire’ in all of us!”

Sapphire walks in the room and the whole table turns

Out of pocket but she’ll never learn

On fire like a rocket in the night

Always gets anything she likes

Things are moving forward with them for summer, “We shot the Sapphire music video with a beautiful classic car – it’s on the song’s album cover and it looks amazing! What people don’t know is that much of the original footage for the video is missing, so we’ve had to re-imagine the whole thing. I think what we’ve come up with is even better. It’ll be worth the wait. Sometimes life happens and you just have to roll with it.” In the meantime, The Petras have announced shows in Kingston and Toronto with more songs and videos set to be released this summer. ‘It’s going to be epic!”

Written by LeBlanc (also of rock band Luscious) and guitarist Rowan “Rogue” Picard and featuring Zoe Evans on bass and Madisen “Maddy” Benoit on drums, “Sapphire” was produced by Juno award winner and founding member of Glass Tiger, Michael Hanson at Altravox Studios. Ryan Lewis of Elevation Music Studio recorded and edited the track.

The Petras and Hanson are currently working on material for an EP.
