I fell in love with Cat Power when I first listened to her rocky folky voice in 2000. And even if she did not want it, she is now one of the biggest fashion icon. I am pretty sure Miss Moss will soon be out soon...
Within 10 years Chan Marshall a.k.a Cat Power managed to become a star that Madonna, Marc Jacobs and Karl Lagerfeld love.
Born in Atlanta, and raised in the pure white trash tradition, she took the decision to go to NYC. There the “Bob Dylan fan” met Sonic Youth's drummer Steve Shelley who immediately believed in her and helped her release her first debut album.
She also met Chris Lombardi founder of the legendary Domino label, who offered her a contract she is still on today. 10 years later she launched “The Greatest” an amazing album, recorded in Memphis, which got a huge popular success. Then Karl asked her to become model for CHANEL, an offer that no one can refuse. She played for the Spring-Summer Haute Couture show of 2007 …the rest is history.
Her folk, her songwriting, her charisma make her one of the best artist of our generation and one of the good taste trend-setter.
