St. Vincent is an American musician and singer who has a net worth of $8 million. St. Vincent released her debut solo album in 2007. She then released a number of other albums over the next decade and a half and won a variety of awards and accolades, including three Grammy Awards. She has been praised by publications like "Rolling Stone" for being one of the greatest guitarists of all time.

Early Life

St. Vincent was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma and given the name Annie Erin Clark on September 28, 1982. Her mother, Sharon Christine, worked as a social worker and administrator for a nonprofit organization while her stepfather, Richard Clark, worked in corporate tax administration. Her mother and father had divorced when she was three years old, after which time her mother and two older sisters moved to Dallas, Texas. Clark was raised as a Catholic and Unitarian Universalist.

When Clark was five years old, her mother gave her a red plastic guitar from Target. She began playing her first real guitar at the age of 12. As a teenager, she worked as a roadie for the guitar-vocal jazz duo, Tuck & Patti, which was comprised of her aunt and uncle. While attending Lake Highlands High School, Clark participated in theater and the school's jazz band. After graduating in 2001, she enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. She left the school before graduating in order to focus on her professional music career.

She was also briefly in a noise rock band called Skull Fuckers. In 2006, she left the Polyphonic Spree and joined Sufjan Stevens' touring band. Around this time, she recorded and released an EP titled "Paris is Burning."

In 2007, Clark released her debut album under the name St. Vincent called "Marry Me." The album was well-received by critics and Clark was compared to artists like Kate Bush and David Bowie.

In 2008, Clark was nominated for three PLUG Independent Music Awards: New Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Music Video of the Year.

The album, which was released independently, did well on the charts, peaking at the number 9 position on the "Billboard" Independent Albums chart. One of Clark's songs, "Rosalyn," was also featured in two of "The Twilight Saga" films.
