ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: Cat Power
Calling all music fans!
If you love Lana Del Rey's sound, I’ll bet you’d enjoy Cat Power’s.
Please tell me you know who Cat Power is… If you don’t, that’s okay (I guess), because you’re not alone. But you need to get familiar, starting now, because she’s amazing, and you won’t regret it.
I first heard Cat Power’s beautiful voice in a friend’s car. Her delicate yet powerful sound has a mix of blues, funk, and soul. An Atlanta, Georgia native, she’s been producing music since the early-'90s, and released her NINTH and most recent album, “Sun” in 2012. Her unique, folksy storytelling style has bridged generations and inspired big names such as Marc Jacobs. She was his muse, a spokesperson for Chanel, and made an appearance in My Blueberry Nights starring Jude Law. It’s no secret that Cat Power is a special, one-of-a-kind artist, who set the tone for artists like Lana Del Rey.
I’ve created a list of her top five best songs, so you can get a feel for her music. Just keep in mind the fact that her last name “Power” shouldn’t be taken lightly!
