  10,000 Maniacs
10,000 Maniacs

Since the early 1980s, 10,000 Maniacs have crafted smart, subtle songs with shimmering melodies and affecting lyrics. Over the course of an EP, six studio albums and a live collection, guitarist Robert Buck, keyboardist Dennis Drew, bassist Steven Gustafson, drummer Jerome Augustyniak and vocalist Natalie Merchant fused funk and folk, edgy guitar and atmospheric keyboards. The band achieved a gentle yet insistent signature sound, delighting critics and fans at home and abroad. When Merchant departed for a solo career in 1993, 10,000 Maniacs sought both to continue their legacy and blaze new trails. They found their answer, figuratively, in their own backyard.

Guitarist John Lombardo, one of the first Maniacs, had departed in 1986 to form a more acoustic-leaning duo. As John and Mary, Lombardo and singer-violist Mary Ramsey (whose work has appeared on records by Ani DiFranco, Billy Bragg and the Goo Goo Dolls) released two celebrated CDs - and kept closely in touch with 10,000 Maniacs. Buck and Augustyniak played on the pair's recordings; Mary graced the band's last two albums with Elektra.
