If you think she is unlistenable, which is something I would never unless the performer is truly a phony, then, what is listenable to you, I am very curious.

I found this shot of the audience.... you can see it's not an 'age' thing.

I could say that about any artist that is playing solo acoustic.

I'm fond of this performance, which might be more to the taste of some of the folks here

She seems sort of okay.

Different strokes, I guess.
I think she's one of the most inventive guitarists out there in (almost) mainstream pop music. Plus she's a great singer, and I'm jealous of those of you who've had the chance to see her live.
Maybe knowing the songs as they are on record, the acoustic versions make more sense than if I just discovered them that way, sure. It's actually cool hearing how something very orchestrated on record still holds together when it's slimmed down to just some chords on acoustic.

Thanks, Joe. That was the point

My opinion as well. I don't get why everyone is acting like she's the next big thing, other than her fluid gender identity.

I’ll say the performance and theme of the song breaks the monotony that I often see is some genres like (dare I say) C & W. Each to their own.

Yet Annie Clark outsells all of them combined. You're obviously onto something

Although I do like all of those guys as well.

I'm well over 50--and 60--and this made me add two St. V. albums to my library. Like her a lot.

She is talented. I didn't care for the "Los Ageless" clip at all. Just seems like a new age art show.

I usually like singer-songwriter type music but her low-energy, "I'm bored with this" affect is off-putting to me. Not my cup 'o tea musically either.
