Growing up, Marshall was not allowed to buy records, but listened to her stepfather’s music collection which included such artists as Otis Redding, Creedence Clearwater Revival and The Rolling Stones. Her earlier works was comprised mostly of free jazz and experimental sounds, and was followed by her 1998 release of Moon Pix, which gained her notoriety in the indie rock scene. The album was a compilation of songs written following nightmares Marshall had experienced while staying on a South Carolina farm.
Fast-forwarding 2 cover albums and 2 solo albums later, to 2012’s release of Sun, the singer has proven her understated and diversified musical talent. Sun is a collection of songs which can truly be played start to finish. The album boasts a different side of Cat Power which shows influences of pop, electric, and synthesized sounds while remaining true to the soulful beginnings we know from her. Sun is undoubtedly a statement of independence for the singer who has battled adulthood demons, troubled relationships, and substance abuse. This record poetically showcases her influential experiences as a coming-of-age album bearing insight to her sensitive soul.
