Chan ([[ItsPronouncedTroPAY pronounced "Shawn"]]) Marshall is a Southern-bred woman. Her family moved frequently. This constant travelling helped prepare Marshall for the touring life she would have as a musician. Marshall is known for having unpolished live shows, with songs beginning and ending abruptly or blending into one another without clear transitions. She has also cut short performances without explanation.

-->''There's no space here to get into the morality of diamond-buying in general - there are plenty of books on the subject, as well as that [[BloodDiamond Leo DiCaprio movie]] - but it's the pairing of Cat Stevens' poignant "How Can I Tell You" (sung in the commercial by Cat Power!) with a goopy diamond commercial that ups the ick factor. A song of longing and searching for the right words to express emotion is given this simple answer: "Don't describe your feelings, let these shiny rocks do that."''

After dropping out of high school, she started performing with a live band. In 1992 she moved to New York City with one of her live band members, Glen Thrasher. Glen introduced Marshall to the experimental and free jazz scene. She saw an Anthony Braxton concert, which gave her the confidence to perform in public. While opening for LizPhair in 1994, she met Music/SonicYouth's drummer Steve Shelley and Tim Foljahn, who played on her first two albums and encouraged her to continue her music career. Marshall took the alias "Cat Power" from a Caterpillar ad that read: "Cat Diesel Power."
