Annie Clark aka St. Vincent is a forward-thinking, guitar-shredding, singer, songwriter and has a flare for edgy performance. When I saw her in 2015 at a music festival in New York she blew us all away with the combination. The performance aspect included strange dancers, crazed upside-down guitar playing, and finally when she “collapsed” on stage from shredding so hard, she kept playing as her “ambulance team” carried her offstage in a stretcher. I saw her again recently wearing a scandalous outfit and performing completely solo. This is someone you must see live if you can. Her songs are unique, powerful, and great to listen to, but live – wow!
Three of the four videos on the YouTube playlist are live so you can get some idea of what she can do as a performer and on the guitar. On this playlist:
