Though you wouldn’t know it from the name,St. Vincent is the stage name for singer-songwriter Annie Erin Clark. She has released three studio albums, some more commercially successful than the other, but all to high critical acclaim.
Raised in Dallas, Clark graduated from Lake Highlands High School in 2001, attended three years of school at Berklee College of Music, and then dropped out to move back home and pursue a music career. After touring overseas with the Polyphonic Spree, and then here in America with Sufjan Stevens, Clark broke away in 2006 and began her solo track.
Her albums, Marry Me, Actor, and Strange Mercy reflect a critical stage in Clark’s life, whether it was her transition to college, the relaxation period after her first solo tour, or simply her realization of self discovery and awareness. By incorporating various instruments, including guitar, piano, organ, violin, trumpets, and a variety of others, St. Vincent creates a unique sound of music that must be heard live to be truly appreciated.
See St. Vincent in all her glory at KXT’s Summer Cut Happy Funtime Festival at the Gexa Energy Pavilion on June 1st.
