She’s a good songwriter and has an unusual, pleasant voice. But she has an irritating stage presence, and seems to perform with reluctance. She had success early in life, and seemed at odds with her band mates in 10kM. At least one band mate was pretty mean about her. When a disinhibited fan sang loudly off key, one of the band commented “Look, It’s Natalie”. Their “unplugged” cd was damned good, particularly their cover of “Because The Night”. I think it may have charted. I always wondered what Patti Smith thought of their version of that song. It was unusual how well they performed together in an acoustic set, and the CD was really well-engineered. She was so young at the Band’s prime, and that much public recognition must be difficult so early in life. I think she’s an environmentalist and lives in a rural area, possibly with her own studio to produce music. Her CD “Tiger Lily” was very successful and I think she produced it herself, or at least kept creative control and possibly intellectual property rights to her songs. She seems very smart and serious, maybe takes her work and herself seriously. I guess that’s admirable. Their hit song “about the weather” was really overplayed. The band, after Merchant left, had a minor hit with a cover of Roxy Music’s “More Than This”, but I don’t think much else after.

A former friend of mine was 10,000 Maniac's road manager when they first started out in Jamestown, NY. He said she was nice, but a little pretentious. How could she not be, though, being the main attraction in a band at such a young age? I believe they stayed in touch, and, when my friend started producing concerts, the band let him produce a few with them.
I heard that she gave the band a very long notice when she decided to go solo, so they would have time to prepare for her departure. I thought that was very gracious of her, considering that many lead singers leave abruptly, leaving the other band members in the lurch.

I saw her open for REM probably around 1995 when her first solo album came out. It was a huge outdoor venue and probably not the best place to see her. Just a very mellow set that didn’t energize the crowd. And since she’d just gone solo she didn’t do any 10,000 Maniacs stuff. Didn’t help that it was Austin in the middle of summer and unbearably hot. Unfortunately the experience kind of killed my interest in her solo stuff. I don’t think I listened to any of her albums after Tigerlily.

I think that lazy and behind and in front of the beat is kind of her style. A little under the note too. She's not a great enough vocalist to call it intentional. When Joni Mitchell sang on the Canadian collective for famine relief, Tears are Not Enough, there was a moment in the making of video when someone off camera says to her - 'Try that again, you were a little under.' Joni responds - that's my style man. And it is, because Joni can sing with perfect intonation anytime she wants too.
Merchant is someone difficult to be effusive over, but she is undoubtedly great and important and immensely unique and talented. Like many on this thread, I hear her voice and I am instantly reminded of another time in my life AND also how great she is.
If you think that Merchant had a lazy or affected way of singing... here's a reminder of why Jewel had only a brief phase of immense popularity. She has quite a beautiful voice of piercing range and resonance and sensitivity. (Howard Stern loves her) but her affectations are unbearable. She sings like a baby talking. Ugh. She breaks up words and sounds to suit her vocal noises. Learn vowels and consonants. Harmonics. Or just try not to fuck it up with your feelings. Get in the backseat Jewel.

Just listened to the Tiny Desk concert and she's still great and there must be something about her because like the other posters on this thread, I hear her and am instantly back in time to 1993. The first song I ever heard by her was "Trouble Me." It was so great, I pulled over in a parking lot instead of continuing driving because I wanted to know who it was and waited for the DJ to say it.
I really loved the Maniac's version of Peace Train, but after Cat Stevens called for the death of Salman Rushdie, she ordered it removed from future versions of In My Tribe and vowed never to sing it in public again.

Jewel only lasted so long because big jugs trumps jacked up teeth.
And don't even get me started on that 911 version of her song HANDS. it was basically a re-release of her songs with audio clips from the news.

I remember R16 ! that must have been around 1986/87.
I loved her as that quirky little pixie. She because a wet blanket after going solo..

This video for a gorgeous song looks piss-poor by today's CGI standards, but it really captures how beautiful and chic Natalie was at her peak.
Every artsy teenage girl wanted to be her, and many alterna-boys were smitten.

She's so beautiful in that video, r120. That's when my crush started.

I saw 10k M open for They Might Be Giants around 89/90 and have loved her and her voice ever since. 90’s era Natalie also strongly resembles my mom when I was a little boy, so watching her older videos has an additional layer of emotion for me. Our Time In Eden indeed.

Natalie may have a delightful personality
but she has not aged particularly well
She looks like someone's GamGam

She aged gracefully. Stop projecting your own insecurities on her you withered old crone.

My cousin’s friend who is a stylist to ALL the big names in deaf rap said that Natalie was nervous and paranoid because Rosie O’Donnell was stalking her by phone. None of the artists heard her phone ringing - just saw her mouthing, “My vagina is none of your beeswax”. At the time, phones were tiny, so a few rappers thought she was talking to them.

After watching the video at R116, I'd like to know who thought Like The Weather needed to heavily feature chickens.

I kicked her in the cunt bone for sort of stealing my schtick.

Used to see her snd Stipe around Athens (GA) all the time circa 1990-1991. Once with a very confused looking Kurt Cobain.

Gracefully for an old crone with long, coarse gray hair...

I know someone who hung out with her back in the day. She was a messy ,malodorous fug. To her great credit she changed her look and made something of herself.

I would forgive her of all sorts of things because of that gorgeous voice. If I could do a thing half so well as she does with her voice, I don't think I would ever stop.
She seems to have gone her own path and moved mostly out of the spotlight, chosen a way that she can do a musical project, slide back into the action for a while, on her own terms, then retreat again from the spotlight. Maybe she can be prickly, maybe she likes things her particular way, maybe she was/is difficult, but goddamn, what a beautiful voice that can be anything, effortlessly it always seems.
The quieter are always my favorite because they show off her voice.
