Anne Clark is a British poet who was a pioneer in the use of spoken words. She had never sung but always told words on music. Her career began in the early eighties with the new wave, she did hit the charts many times with David Harrow's synthetic compositions. She has also worked with Vini Reilly and Martyn Bates.
Anne Clark (born 14 May 1960, Croydon, London, England) is an English poet and songwriter. Her first album, The Sitting Room, was released in 1982, and she has released over a dozen albums since then. Her experimental music occupies a region bounded roughly by electronic, dance (techno applies on occasion) and possibly avant-garde genres, with varying hard as well as romantic and orchestral styles. Clark is mainly a spoken word artist. Many of her lyrics deal critically with the imperfections of humanity, everyday life, and politics. Especially in her early works she has created a gloomy, melancholy kind of atmosphere bordering on weltschmerz.
