Natalie Merchant sings old poems to life

 

Natalie Merchant’s career spans three decades — as the leader of 10,000 Maniacs and in her own solo work — of making warmly personal music. In this TED talk program Natalie Merchant sings from her new album, Leave Your Sleep which combines lyrics from near-forgotten 19th-century poetry with her unmistakable voice for a performance that brought the TED audience to its feet.

In the 1980s, Natalie Merchant led the great folk-rock band 10,000 Maniacs. She went solo in the ’90s, and to maintain creative control over her music, she self-funded her debut album, Tigerlily, which had chart-toppers like “Jealousy,” “Carnival” and “Wonder.” She recorded her sophomore album, Ophelia, at her home studio; the album went platinum, and she headlined at Lilith Fair and joined the American Folk Music Tour before releasing Motherland, which paired her rich voice with more strings. «Read the rest of this article»
