From the time she used to play in Sufjan Stevens’ band, writing little bluesy folk songs on the side, Annie Clark has changed so much. Reborn as guitar heroin, metamorphosing pop music with her clashing clothes and tearing into the crowds with strange and martial guitars, St. Vincent is a different women. In that time, she has released four breathtaking albums (the latest one, a critically acclaimed eponymous creation, was released earlier this year), has collaborated at length with David Byrne of Talking Heads fame (2012’s “Love Is a Giant”), as well as Bon Iver, Andrew Bird, and Swans, among others. She even got to be the front women for Nirvana, replacing Kurt Cobain at a Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame concert. The world of rock praises her for her angst, the world of pop for her class, and the crowds of all type for her spectacular live shows; St. Vincent is truly one of the greats of her time and her legend is surely just beginning.
