Annie Clark aka St. Vincent, might seem like an overnight success if you’re just hearing about her. The Funny thing about “overnight success,” as any artists in the entertainment business will often tell you, is that “overnight” success is something that is generally years in the making.
Case in point is St. Vincent. She started in the early 00’s touring and playing on other people’s records for indie darlings like the Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens before signing with Beggars Banquet in 2007. It was also at this time that the transition from Annie Clark to St. Vincent became official (St. Vincent is a reference to the hospital where beat poet Dylan Thomas lived his final days).
Fast forward to 2014 and St. Vincent has found herself with records in the top 100, collaborations with Talking Head’s legend David Byrne and a front seat in the mainstream music consciousness with her fifth full-length release, St. Vincent, and 80’s inspired video for the hit song “Digital Witness.”
