MERCHANT lost his mother at age 11 and spent the majority of his teens in the Belmont orphanage where he learned to play the guitar and developed a love for music and singing. He led a troubled teenage life which took a turn for the better when he was spared jail time and placed on probation provided that he pursue music as a career. Despite success with hits such as "Um Ba Yo", "Pan In Danger", "Caribbean Connection" and "Rock It" MERCHANT continued to be haunted by demons from his childhood throughout his career and battled a drug habit. He was diagnosed with HIV in 1994 and died of AIDS in 1999.
Motherland is the third solo album by Natalie Merchant, released in 2001. It was her last studio album released on Elektra Records. The album is musically eclectic, varying from Middle Eastern violin–reggae beat fusion "This House Is on Fire" to 10,000 Maniacs-sounding "Tell Yourself". Folky "Motherland" precedes stylistically Merchant's next album, The House Carpenter's Daughter. Originally, "The End" was supposed to appear on the album instead of "Not In This Life.

Moby's first major-label album didn't seem promising at first - a little techno dude trying his arty hand at pop-song form, New Age movie music and blues-metal guitar. But Everything Is Wrong turned out to be one amazing record, mixing up styles with earnest curiosity and that rarest of techno-dude traits, a sense of humor. Wilco and Galactic Bring Smooth Intensity to Jazz Fest. Bossanova was the Pixies' most straight-ahead rock album. But by their warped standards, it was still safely off the mainstream.
