Cat Power

Cat Power (Charlyn Marie Marshall) is an American singer/songwriter from Georgia. 

I am a big fan of Cat Power - her raspy and soulful voice create songs that are perfect for that evening of chilled music. Her unique voice also makes it impossible to not recognize her songs which include "Maybe Not," "Sea Of Love" and "Werewolf." Another song to check out is her incredible cover of wonderwall by Oasis.

Similar artists to Cat Power include FeistWarpaint and Bat For Lashes.

Cat power has a number of albums; Dear Sir, Myra Lee, What Would the Community Think, Moon Pix, The  Covers Record, You Are Free, The Greatest, Jukebox and the recently released Sun. Sun, which was released on September 3rd, has proven to be a great hit, with reviews stating it to be "a passionate pop album of electronic music filtered through a singer-songwriter's soul. "

Cat Power has previously received bad reviews for her live performances - being seen as "unpolished" and "erratic." However after a breakdown which she describes as a "psychotic break" and publicly admitting to a drink problem, Cat Power has become sober and as a result seen her career flourish. She now performs on stage with great confidence, and repeatedly delivers a polished, professional and emotional performance.

Go on. Check her out.
