Biography

After rising to fame at the helm of the popular folk-rock band 10,000 Maniacs, Natalie Merchant enjoyed even greater success as a solo artist, during the mid-’90s. Her literate, socially conscious songs established her among the preeminent women in pop music, while her solo debut — 1995’s Tigerlily — helped pave the way for a number of female performers in a pre-Lilith Fair market. She continued releasing albums well into the 2000s, often examining specific genres or subjects, although Tigerlily remained her biggest-selling record.

EXPAND FULL BIO

Merchant joined 10,000 Maniacs at the age of 17shooting into the Top 40 with 1987’s In My Tribe and charting even higher with their follow-up effort, Blind Man’s Zoo. Merchant’s desire to launch a solo career increased alongside the band’s growing reputation.

Merchant made her solo debut with 1995’s Tigerlily, a self-produced album that debuted at number 13 and scored a Top Ten single with ‘Carnival.’ Two additional singles, ‘Wonder’ and ‘Jealousy,’ also cracked the Top 40, prompting Tigerlily to sell over five million copies in the U.S. alone. It was followed in 1998 by Ophelia, another platinum-selling effort that was supported by Merchant’s inclusion in the second Lilith Fair tour.

Merchant launched a folk tour in 2000, with members of progressive folk band the Horse Flies joining her on the road. She then returned to her solo career with Motherland. Two years later, Merchant left Elektra’s roster and formed her own independent label, Myth America, in order to issue House Carpenter’s Daughter. As the decade drew to a close, though, Merchant signed with Nonesuch Records and new album arrived in the form of 2010’s Leave Your Sleep.
