Cat Power

 

Chan Marshall has been writing, performing, and recording under the name Cat Power for more than twenty-five years now, during which time she has built a large, faithful audience for her ever-evolving, utterly unique style. Each new album tends to bring to light a new side of her: She’s been an introspective folkie, a hard-edged indie rocker, even a full-on soul singer with backup singers and a horn section, among other things. Unlike a Madonna or a Gaga, however, these changes of sound don’t come across as easily disposable roles or theatrical personae. Rather, they feel like deeper and deeper layers of her truest self being revealed through her artistry. Though Marshall’s concerts sometimes drew less than flattering attention early in her career thanks to her severe stage fright, she has by all accounts developed into a captivating live performer. Even so, tours—especially those that take her anywhere close to WNY—are still few and far between, so don’t delay, grab your tickets today. —Ron Ehmke
