About Cat Power

Belonging to Atlanta, Georgia, the American singer-songwriter had a limited access to music in her childhood so she listened to her stepfather’s collection which included artists like The Rolling Stones, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Otis Redding. It was at the age of twenty, at the beginning of her career, when she was exposed to free jazz and experimental music scene by Glen Thrasher which eventually broadened her horizon. Speaking of the musical styles, Cat Power infuses many genres such as indie rock, blues rock, alternative rock, folk rock, lo-fi, and sadcore in her music. In her older albums, punk, folk and blues were more dominant as compared to the recent ones in which she has flaunted diversity with genres like soul and electronica among others.
