Natalie Merchant joined the alternative/folk rock band 10,000 Maniacs in 1981 before leaving to begin her solo career in 1993. Since the start of that solo career, she has released several albums including 2015’s Paradise Is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings. As a young girl, Merchant was encouraged to study music and was not allowed to watch television. Her musical tastes were inspired by her mother who loved classical music and had the soundtrack from West Side Story and South Pacific. When her mother married a jazz musician, Merchant began to listen and like jazz music.
After she decided to leave the band, Merchant was eager to writer her own material and went home and composed the song “I May Know the Word” which debuted on her debut solo album Tigerlily. She named the album Tigerlily because she felt it captured the feel of the album which she has described as both ‘fierce’ and ‘delicate’. Since releasing her debut album, Merchant has released six other albums including 2015’s Paradise Is There: The New Tigerlily Recordings.
