In the last decade Tiff Merritt, who grew up in Raleigh, has gone from a regional sweetheart to a national up-and-comer. She has done a number of things including doing the late-night television circuit and releasing two records on a major label; however, the recordings sold less than 120,000 copies and the company dropped her, despite critical acclaim for her work. Merritt and companion, musician Zeke Hutchins, have moved to New York, seeking a restart to their careers.
