Chan Marshall has been making stunning music as Cat Power for over 20 years. In that time, her sound has evolved significantly. Her mid-'90s albums introduced her as a low-key, lo-fi singer-songwriter, singing a kind of mix of indie, country, blues and punk.
Her sound cleaned up in later albums, but the acclaim kept building. As more people learnt of her huge talent, Marshall began broadening her sound. She brought in new sounds and guest performers, though her songs never lost their ability to make us feel strong emotions.
