Cat Power – Live

The Forum

I was introduced to the music of Cat Power last year and immediately fell in love with the lyrics and vocals of the amazing Chan Marshall. I could not believe I had missed the last 10 years of music created by this super talented being.

From the moment she appeared on stage at the Forum in Kentish Town, I was seriously moved. Never before have I been so overwhelmed by a musician. She was amazing, her voice, her passion, her incredible lyrics, her quirky little moves and sense of humour, the lot. She has a reason to show off, yet she is subtle and delicate, you might even say tortured.

She captivated the audience immediately, with songs such as Living Proof, The Greatest and Where Is My Love even throwing in her own version of Patsy Cline’s Crazy. We were all mesmerized and when she finished with the stunning Lived In Bars, which is a personal favourite of mine, I felt lucky to have been part of this night. In my opinion, she really is The Greatest.
