During her early career, Natalie Merchant sang lead vocals for the famous rock band 10,000 Maniacs. Her musical prowess was noticed when she was with the band. Her time with the band lasted for the first seven albums, following which she launched a solo career. Thanks to that decision, her career soared, and people started appreciating her music for what it truly is.
Natalie's socially conscious songs propelled her to prominence as an artist. Her music radiated brightly. With the release of her debut album "Tigerlily," she cemented her spot among the top artists in the genres of Americana, pop, and rock. The CD was praised by both critics and listeners. The tune "Carnival," her first top-ten hit, is the most memorable from her debut. Following that came a string of wonderfully written and sonically excellent albums. Her second album, "Ophelia," had extensive orchestration and was a commercial success. She was reaching new heights with every album release. Experimenting with new sounds, her music had evolved into a more folk-rock genre by 2003, as evidenced by her CD "The House Carpenter's Daughter." She published the album "Leave Your Sleep" in 2010, which was a passionate and intimate story of her daughter's first six years of life. This was followed by her self-titled album in 2014. She will release her eighth album, "Keep Your Courage," this year, much to the delight of fans and reviewers alike.
This September, catch the brilliant singer-songwriter on her " A Night with Natalie Merchant" at the Keller Auditorium on Saturday, September 23. This concert is in line with her "Keep Your Courage" tour.
