Cat Power covers such greats as Joni Mitchell, James Brown, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra and more!
Chan Marshall stops time. She sits at a piano or lays her guitar across her lap,
and whether it’s a noisy club overflowing with drunks or a coffee house full of
laptoppers, Chan Marshall draws all the attention in the room and makes the
world stop spinning. As Cat Power, Marshall’s music seems to rise from nowhere,
envelop the room, then vanish; listeners know they’ve been hit by something but
they’re not sure what.
Chan Marshall's second album of cover songs includes works by Joni Mitchell,
James Brown, the Highwaymen, Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan, Frank Sinatra along with
The collection of songs on Jukebox includes songs such as Hank Williams' "Ramblin'
(Wo)Man" and Bob Dylan's "I Believe In You".
"...for the most part (Marshall) remains understated, her smoky timbre
fogging up windows... Warm sonics allow Marshall's faint, reverb-accented voice
to glow and the loose instrumentation to hover before settling. Slow and
longing, this is music made for solitary late-night cries on the couch." -
