Natalie Merchant: Paradise is There

Paradise is There revisits Merchant’s multi-platinum solo debut, Tigerlily, originally released in 1995. The new release is accompanied by a memoir-style documentary film containing live performances, archival footage, and interviews with musicians, friends and fans about the influence the songs of Tigerlily have had over the past 20 years. The film encapsulates Merchant’s entire musical life, and dives deep, song by song, into Tigerlily through the impassioned words of fans, fellow musicians, and Merchant herself. The film is as much an exploration of Merchant’s music as it is the power of music itself to affect us in profound, lasting, and uplifting ways.
