Cat Power


Cat Power's Chan (pronounced "Shawn") Marshall exists on a plane somewhat different than yours or mine, as anybody who has heard her sing knows. Her voice is unlike anyone you've heard before, combining raw intimacy with a gruff, chalky. While any attempt to interpret her lyrics comes up short, their plain-spoken lines belie an otherwordly perspective on primal human emotions. She's abstract but always honest and true. That awareness has caused a tidal wave of adulation for Chan from her giant fan base, one that has tripled with each new record released. They'll go anywhere with her, trusting that it always leads to a familiar place that will never seem the same. Recorded by Adam Kasper (Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam).
