As a member of Polyphonic Spree, musician Annie Clark was a part of hugely successful group collaboration. As St. Vincent, she became an acclaimed musician in her own right, releasing three hit albums and playing widely attended, high profile tour dates. From her very first solo album, St. Vincent has become a favorite of audiences around the US and has plenty more to come, including her upcoming album, Strange Mercy. If that weren't enough, St. Vincent will soon embark on a number of 2011 tour dates around the US that will ironically leave her fans asking for more.
Annie Clark began her musical career at a young age, becoming a roadie and later an opening act for her uncle's band, Tuck & Patti. She attended Berklee College of Music for a few years before dropping out to join Polyphonic Spree. As a part of the group, Clark was afforded the opportunity to perform tour dates with David Bowie, but left soon after recording for The Fragile Army finished. St. Vincent then immediately began her solo career and released her debut album, Marry Me. The album became a huge hit and soon complimentary comparisons between St. Vincent and Kate Bush emerged from adoring critics. Her 2009 album, Actor was heavily inspired by classic children's movies and was mostly recorded using GarageBand. The album experienced similar critical acclaim, and faired even better commercially than her previous record.
As fans wait anxiously for the release of Strange Mercy, they're also waiting for St. Vincent's 2011 tour dates, which begin on August 25. After visiting some stellar venues in most major US cities for nearly three months, St. Vincent will conclude the tour on November 4 in Boston. Be sure to catch St. Vincent's 2011 tour dates before they disappear.
