Clark is still laughing about her latest “breakout” moment. While she was fooling around with a banjo at an Austin apartment during the 2006 SXSW Music Festival, Castanets’ Ray Raposa walked in and, having just met Clark, asked her to play the instrument at his showcase that week. My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden saw the show and hipped Stevens to St. Vincent’s music. A few emails later, Clark was in Europe playing in his band and serving as the opening act. So why’s she laughing? “I’d never touched a banjo before that night in Austin.”

Doubt it. But they both might have the same jazz and avant garde influences...resulting in some occasionally similar abstract guitar stylings. See the bottom of the first post of this thread for info on her uncle's influence.
Honestly, I feel like there is a bit volta influence in the guitar playing.
Here's some great pics of Annie...

thats gonna be an awesome show. i think the national are the best indie band from the US right now.
I've found her to be like a less annoying Regina Spektor. I'll be seeing her support The National in November.
