Throughout the many lives of Natalie Merchant -- as lead singer of 10,000 Maniacs in the '80s, as the platinum-plated solo act in the '90s, as one of the new millennium's most ambitious and avant-garde musicians -- one thing has remained the same: her uncompromising artistry. With a voice that quivers with a rare emotional intensity (and intelligence), Merchant inflects every song with poetry and power, lifting hits like "Because the Night," "Carnival," "Wonder" and "Jealousy" to the level of art. Now she is touring in support of one of the most hotly anticipated releases in years, the self-titled and self-produced Natalie Merchant, which NPR recently praised for giving "full rein" to Merchant's "stronger than ever" voice. Now this consummate artist appears live at The Chicago Theatre. Learn More
