This isn’t brand new, but it may be new to you. Born Charlyn Marie “Chan” Marshall now going by an old name of her band, Cat Power this American artists sound can be explained as a “mix of punk, folk and blues”. Discovered in the mid 90’s she has always kept music close to her. She also stays busy with other hobbies and interests such as advertising, fashion and charity work. Like many she has struggled with relationships and drug abuse but has recently had a child. Needless to say her story is interesting and amazing. We look forward to hearing more from you Cat Powers.
