Natalie Merchant first made a name for herself back in the early 1980s as front woman and songwriter for the band 10,000 Maniacs. In the 1990s, she moved on to a successful solo career, continuing to captivate fans with her unique, hypnotic voice. Since then, Merchant’s artistic impulses veered away from the world of pop into folk music, orchestral performance, and, inspired by her daughter, children’s poetry. Now, she has released her first album of original songs in 13 years. The work, titled “Natalie Merchant," is the fullest expression of her songwriting voice to date.
