Natalie Merchant

When: Sun., Jan. 26 2014

From a career perspective, former 10,000 Maniacs vocalist and prestige solo artist Natalie Merchant has been relatively subdued since the years when AOR hits like "These Are Days" and "Jealousy" propelled her to multi-platinum status. A skilled songwriter, the upstate New Yorker is also a fine vocalist — Merchant's "To Sir With Love" duet with Michael Stipe still sounds extraordinary — while her most recent album, which was inspired by stories she read to her daughter, reached No. 1 on Billboard's folk chart. Catch her tonight at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com); showtime is 6:30, tickets are $35 and up. — Bill Forman
