About the Creator and Performer

Annie Clark made her recorded debut as St. Vincent in 2007 with Marry Me, and has since become one of the most innovative and enigmatic presences in modern music.
Each of St. Vincent’s four subsequent albums has met with critical acclaim and commercial success eclipsing that of its predecessor. These albums would include Actor (2009), Strange Mercy (2011), and her self-titled fourth album and winner of the 2014 Grammy for Best Alternative Album, making her only the second female artist ever to win in that category. In addition to these solo works, St. Vincent joined with David Byrne to record and release the collaborative album Love This Giant in 2012, and performed with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear of Nirvana at the band’s 2014 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, playing the season finale of Saturday Night Live that same year.
In 2017, working with co-producer Jack Antonoff, St. Vincent created a defining statement with MASSEDUCTION. As ambitious as it was accessible, the album broke St. Vincent into the US and UK top 10s while landing at #1 on the Best of 2017 lists of Jon Pareles of The New York Times and The Guardian—and placing high in the year-end rankings of The AV Club, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, Mashable, The New York Daily News, the NME, Noisey, Paste, Pitchfork, Q, Stereogum, USA Today, and more.

Featured Article: Turn Up the Volume—These Are the Best Listens for Music Fans


There’s nothing quite like the electricity that flows through the crowd at a concert: from the moment the lights come up on stage to the amazing sense of communal energy, it’s an experience unlike any other. So it's been a painful few months for fans, musicians, and venues as the pandemic upended album releases, festivals, concert tours, and other events. These listens offer a much-needed dose of the rhythm, artistry, and melodies you might be missing.

Not my cup of tea

Not a fan of her voice or songwriting.
The narrative is entirely self referential with little interest shown for the wider world around her. There are missing explanations, like why she did not get to attend the performance high school she wanted to go to, or the events leading to her father’s white collar conviction. Overall, disappointing.

A well produced insight on an amazing artist

Thoroughly enjoyed learning more about what went into the music. I’ve been a fan of hers for awhile, so much talent. The way she is able to tap into her emotions and present her art exactly how she wants is inspiring.

Love you, Annie!

I very much enjoy hearing artist's stories about their lives, careers and songs. This is such a fantastic dive into all of those themes. St. Vincent is such an incredible artist and performer, so I love hearing about where certain music and ideas come from. I wish this were several hours long, I could really listen to Annie tell stories all day. Thank you!

Greatest songwriter

I loved this audible original! St Vincent is one of my all time favorite artists and the work and thought and heart she puts behind her music is really shown in this audio. Totally worth it.

Good story, the style isn't my favorite

She has a nice voice and interesting story. I like how Audible puts the words of artist and events of background info together with the song.

Worldview from a fallen world

Life is not all about you and what you want or who you think you should be, or "finding your calling". The feeling in your heart that you want something different or more, comes from God seeking you out. I have never heard of you before, but I would urge you to please read The Bible just one time. It will change your life.

Oh how I wish

Oh how I wish to only have 1% of this woman’s vocabulary. So smart, articulate and the performances are perfect. And remember ladies: catholicism is sexy.
