The woman who would come to be known as Cat Power was born Charlyn Marie Marshall on January 21, 1972 in Atlanta, Georgia. Having cited a tumultuous childhood, Marshall left high school to perform in Atlanta under her stage moniker, making a name in the underground music scene. She moved to New York City in 1992, developing further indie music connections, and at the end of 1994 recorded material that would comprise her first two albums, Dear Sir (1995) and Myra Lee (1996), which is named after her mother. She was signed to Matador Records in 1996, and the same year released What Would the Community Think?
Moon Pix dropped in 1998, and Cat Power’s 2000 album, The Covers Record, featured stark, radical remakes of songs from artists like Nina Simone, Michael Hurley and the Rolling Stones. This was followed by 2003’s You Are Free, which features input from Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam and Dave Kohl of the Foo Fighters.
Power’s smoky, subterranean vocals and fusion of sounds—her music blends folk, country, blues, punk and avant-garde pop— have earned her a devoted following.
Jade is best known for her incredibly brilliant vocal on the smash hit song “Home” that she co-penned and performed with Alex Ebert of the world renowned Indie Rock sensation Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
Jade has appeared on every major late night show with Edward Sharpe including Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and Jimmy Kimmel. The band was also featured in Rolling Stone Magazine as well as FORD and NFL commercials. Selling out some of the biggest festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella they have played to millions of fans worldwide. Jade’s unforgettable and heart lifting vocals can be heard on tunes such as Home, Fire Water (River of Love) and Janglin.
