I recently discovered this wonderful singer/songwriter named St. Vincent (who takes her name from a Nick Cave lyric), and I can't get enough. She also a talented guitarist, and has a collaboration album with David Byrne. Plus she's real pretty to boot! Is anyone here familiar with her?

I was introduced to St. Vincent by way of My Brightest Diamond, as both Shara and Annie toured with Sufjan Stevens. Her current persona is becoming a bit of a turn off. Uncertain whether it's put on (thanks, David Byrne), or, perhaps she simply is a bit of a dick. Nonetheless, the music remains solid. I'd highly recommend attending a gig if possible; she's fantastic live.

Apparently. :)

St. Vincent climbed stage scaffolding, stole the audience’s clothes, and totally obliterated ACL — watch

Quote:
St. Vincent’s Annie Clark often draws comparisons to David Byrne for her quirky on-stage persona, but during yesterday’s performance at Austin City Limits, the purple-haired singer-songwriter gave her best impression of Eddie Vedder. When not wreaking total havoc with her guitar, Clark swung from stage scaffolding and dove into the audience to take people’s clothing, even ending up with someone’s crutch.

Moderate fan. Have known about her for last 5-6 years or so and have her first 2-3 releases. I haven't kept up with her to the extent that i know the rhyme or reason of her current stage persona & antics, but it's probably the usual, "I'm trying new things, pushing boundaries", etc., mindset.
