Austin City Limits

Natalie Merchant/Eric Taylor (#2713)

After multi-platinum success with 10,000 Maniacs, Merchant takes a bold step forward with adventurous songs that are passionate, shimmering, and soulful. "Motherland," written before Sept. 11, is a desperate plea for innocence. Texan Eric Taylor is a master of the sublime, called by one "the Willliam Faulkner of songwriting."
