Indie-rock singer/songwriter Cat Power will play her first show in the Valley in over four years when she headlines the Marquee Theatre, 730 N. Mill Ave., Tempe, on Thursday, April 17.
Born Charlyn Marshall in Atlanta, Georgia to a blues singer father, Cat Power released her debut disc, “Dear Sir,” in 1995 but, despite critical acclaim throughout her career, did not achieve chart success until her 2003 album, “You Are Free,” hit No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. Cat Power’s breakthrough disc, “The Greatest,” was a No. 1 independent album hit and broke the Billboard Top 40, and her current disc, “Jukebox” (2008) gave the singer/songwriter her first Top 20 album.
Known in the past for her wildly unpredictable (some might say unprofessional) stage performances, Cat Power – who accompanies herself on piano and guitar – credits her newfound sobriety (she spent a week in a psychiatric hospital in 2006 after a nervous breakdown) for her new renewed enthusiasm for performing.
