ABOUT ST. VINCENT
St. Vincent’s 2014 self-titled album was her best-reviewed and best-selling to date, topping many year-end lists and culminating in her first GRAMMY® nomination and win for Best Alternative Music Album in 2015. Shortly after the album’s release Clark performed with a re-formed Nirvana at the 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and on the 2014 season finale of Saturday Night Live. In 2015 Clark won the ASCAP Vanguard Award and she was 2017’s Record Store Day Ambassador.
ABOUT ERNIE BALL
In 1962, Ernie Ball revolutionized rock music with the introduction of Slinkys®, the iconic light-gauge electric guitar strings widely revered by some of the most important artists in rock history, including Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Jeff Beck, Slash and of course, St. Vincent, to name but a few. Ernie Ball strings have been used to write, record and perform some of the most important music in rock history. With its founder's dedication to preserving the musician's playing experience and delivering superior sound quality through the development of new products, the company continued its pursuit of innovation.” Fifty-five years after giving us Slinkys, Ernie Ball is changing the landscape once again by creating PARADIGM, the world’s strongest, most durable and technologically advanced guitar strings. Unlike their competitors, who are all corporate-owned, the Southern California-based company remains a family-run business. They employ a “techie artisan” approach that combines cutting-edge technology with handcrafted techniques and as pointed out by Adweek and Inc., they’ve become a high-quality content creator securing brand loyalty on the level of a major media organization. As Blink 182/Angels & Airwaves’ Tom DeLonge recently said at the premiere of his “Ernie Ball: The Pursuit of Tone” television special, “Who would’ve thought that a company that makes guitar strings would be so influential? It’s crazy.” As covered by the Huffington Post, the company recently announced a new line of guitars, which they designed with Grammy winner St. Vincent.
