Perhaps most known for her songs “Roslyn”, which was featured on the Twilight: New Moon soundtrack and was performed with Bon Iver, and “Slow Disco”, her music can be categorized in many ways, from soft rock to lounge pop. This multitude of genres has made her extremely well suited to the music world, as she keeps people guessing what she’ll do next.

St. Vincent has won many awards, including a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album for her self-titled album St. Vincent and a 2019 Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for the song “Masseducation”. Her most recent album, Daddy’s Home, was released in 2021 to critical acclaim. The album was produced alongside Jack Antonoff, who has famously worked with artists such as Taylor Swift, Lorde, and more.
