American singer-songwriter, musician and occasional actress and model, also known as Chan Marshall. Cat Power was originally the name of Marshall's first band, but has come to refer to her musical projects with various backing bands.

According to an interview in January 2011, Marshall was in a relationship with actor Giovanni Ribisi from 2006 and lived with Ribisi and his 14-year-old daughter in Los Angeles. In June 2012, it was reported that Marshall was no longer in a relationship with Ribisi. The completion of Marshall's album Sun coincided with their break up: "I cut my hair off three days [after the break-up], got on a plane to France, and finished...".

In April 2015, Marshall announced that she recently had a baby.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes an email from Kevin Cee:

In a Spotify Audio Interview, Track 7 "Inspiration VS Discipline" at the 2 minute mark, Cat Power discusses her astrological chart. She states she is an Aquarius "with the backbone of a Capricorn" and "an honorary Scorpio with Aries moon in between the 8th house and 9th house". Although she has no planets in Cancer she says "I'm a Cancer because I love everybody". I'm not quite sure what she meant by that part, but I believe she may have been referring to some Cancer influence in her chart? She does not say a rising sign or time of birth. Regardless, a rectified time of 9:20 PM on January 21, 1972 would place her Aries moon in the 8th house. It also would give her Part of Fortune in Cancer and a strong 4th house. (could she have been referring to that?) It is a bit of rectifying, but it seems to match the chart she describes in this interview.

Astrotheme claims that Power says in a Spotify interview that she has Cancer rising, but Cee clarifies that: "The interview I posted is the same Spotify interview that Astrotheme is referring to. She does not say in the interview that she has 'Cancer rising'. She says she has her moon in the 8th and Cancer rising would give moon in the 10th house."

Scholfield notes that by Aquarius "with the backbone of a Capricorn" she seems to mean that she was born on the Capricorn/Aquarius cusp. She has said, "I'm the first day of the Aquarius, so I'm very Capricorn-ish, which is the most working sign." ("Cat Power: Chan Marshall on the trial and error that went into her forthcoming LP, Sun" by Ryan Dombal, Pitchfork, 25 June 2012, http://pitchfork.com/features/update/8874-cat-power/). Date and place from "Cat Power: A Good Woman" by Elizabeth Goodman (Random House, 2009), p. 27: "Charlyn (pronounced Shar-Lin) Marie Marshall was born at Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, on January 21, 1972."

Scholfield speculates 6:50pm putting the Moon on the Equal 8/9th cusp. 'Cat Power' apparently knows a bit about astrology and may have given herself that name because she has Leo rising.
