Natalie Merchant Background
Singer/songwriter Natalie Merchant was born October 26, 1963, in Jamestown, New York.
She was inspired by her paternal grandfather, who played the mandolin, accordion and guitar, as well as her maternal grandfather,
a piano tuner, cartoonist and a barbershop quartet member. Merchant grew up surrounded by the music of Al Green, Aretha Franklin
and The Beatles – favorite music choices of her mother. At the age of 17, Merchant joined the band 10,000 Maniacs and
they became one of the top bands to emerge in the late '80s. In My Tribe (1987) cracked the Top 40 and Blind Man's Zoo ranked
even higher. Our Time in Eden came next (1992), which was around the same time that Merchant gave her fellow Maniacs notice
that she wanted to pursue a solo career.
After her split with the 10,000 Maniacs, Natalie Merchant went right to work
on her own original material for her album, Tigerlily, penning songs like "I May Know the Word" and "Beloved Wife," which
was included as the first song in the trailer for the romantic flick Message in a Bottle.Tigerlilywas a critical and commercial
success, generating her first Top 10 hit, "Carnival," and landing Top 40 hits with "Jealousy" and "Wonder." The album sold
over 5 million copies, continuing to be Merchant's most successful album to date. To promote the album, she made countless
TV appearances, including taking the stage on SNL and all of the late-night talk shows. She in fact was the first musical
guest to be asked back by David Letterman to perform for a second night in a row! Her sophomore solo effort,Ophelia, featured
30 different musicians. "Kind and Generous," one of the songs off the album, garnered tremendous airplay on VH1 and cemented
Merchant's role as a bona fide solo artist. In 2000, Merchant embarked on a folk music tour joined by the Horse Flies. Following
the tour, she went back to work on Motherland. Shortly after, Merchant split from the Electra label and established Myth America
to release House Carpenter's Daughter. Things remained quiet on the musical front for Merchant after this folk music collection
dropped but picked up again in 2010 with Leave You Sleep.Most recently, Merchant released her eponymous effort in the spring
