Biography

St. Vincent is a name of at least three artists:

1) A pseudonym of Annie Clark (b. 28 Sept 1982), a USA multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter. She was a member of The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens’ touring band. Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, she began playing the guitar at the age of 12 and as a teenager worked as the tour manager for her uncle’s band Tuck & Patti. She grew up in Dallas and attended Lake Highlands High School, graduating in 2001. Following this, she went on to attend Berklee College of Music, dropping out 3 years later. Soon after this, she joined The Polyphonic Spree. In 2003, during her time at Berklee, she released an EP with fellow students, entitled RatsLiveOnNoEvilStar.

Clark joined Sufjan Stevens’ touring band in 2006, bringing with her a tour EP entitled Paris Is Burning. It contains three tracks, including a cover version of Jackson Browne’s These Days.

Clark released her début album, Marry Me, 10 July 2007 on Beggars Banquet Records. Named after a line from the cult-hit television show Arrested Development, the LP features appearances from drummer Brian Teasley (Man or Astro-Man?, The Polyphonic Spree), Mike Garson (David Bowie’s longtime pianist), and horn player Louis Schwadron (The Polyphonic Spree).

In 2008 Clark was nominated for three PLUG Independent Music Awards: New Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Music Video of the Year, and on 6 March 2008, she won the Female Artist of the Year award.

Her second album for 4AD, entitled Actor, was released on 5 May 2009. It was written entirely by Clark and produced by Clark and John Congleton of The pAper chAse.

    @XDRory: Annie seems unstoppable. Since 2007, she barely had a break. There's a big chance that she will release another album next year.

    I wonder if it would be too much to ask for new St. Vincent album in 2015?

    I really love all of her work, but I do say that my heart would soar if she put out another album that had stuff like Human Racing or What Me Worry?. Go back to that early sound, but with her newer outlook.

    Great mixtape for an 11 year old with a great electronic taste.

    eu acho esse @ towardsecstasy tão estranho, quase todos os dias ele vai na pagina de algum artista, que tem fãs que geralmente não ficam nessa de "pisou", e comenta que tal artista é tapete de outro. Você realmente tem 29 anos?
