Annie Clark - St. Vincent


Annie Erin Clark (1982), better known by her stage name St. Vincent, is an American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. She began her music career as a member of The Polyphonic Spree and was also part of Sufjan Stevens' touring band before forming her own band in 2006.
Her debut album was Marry Me, and was followed by Actor (2009). Her third album, Strange Mercy, was released on September 13, 2011. September 2012, she released a collaborative album with David Byrne titled Love This Giant.
Clark appeared on the film soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
Clark's music has been noted for its wide array of instruments and arrangements, as well as its polysemous lyrics, which have been described as teetering between "happiness and madness". In response to this, Clark has said, "I like when things come out of nowhere and blindside you a little bit. I think any person who gets panic attacks or has an anxiety disorder can understand how things can all of a sudden turn very quickly. I think I'm sublimating that into the music."
