Timeline of Stephin Merritt


Prior to 2013, Merritt had never met his biological father, folk singer Scott Fagan, who had a brief affair with Merritt’s mother, Alix Merritt. The three met at a screening of the film AKA Doc Pomus in 2013. Merritt’s relationship with his father is described in the song “’99: Fathers in the Clouds”, on the Magnetic Fields album 50 Song Memoir. Merritt attended Massachusetts high school The Cambridge School of Weston and briefly attended NYU before moving back to Boston. He has worked as an editor for Spin Magazine and Time Out New York.


He produced a score for the silent film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea that was performed at the Castro Theatre, San Francisco on May 4, 2010 as part of the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Merritt is the subject of a documentary, Strange Powers: Stephin Merritt and the Magnetic Fields, which premiered in March 2010.


Merritt penned the music and lyrics for a 2009 Off-Broadway stage musical adaptation of Coraline, a novel by Neil Gaiman. In the MCC Theater production, his music will be performed by a piano “orchestra” – complete with a traditional piano, a toy piano and a prepared piano (a piano that has had its sound altered by attaching objects – such as tin foil, rubber bands and playing cards – to the strings).


Merritt wrote and sang “I’m in a Lonely Way” in a television commercial for Volvo that aired in the summer and fall of 2007. He also performed “The Wheels on the Car”.


Merritt created and plays principal roles in the bands The Magnetic Fields, The 6ths, The Gothic Archies and Future Bible Heroes. He briefly used the name The Baudelaire Memorial Orchestra as an attribution for a song written for Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, entitled “Scream and Run Away”. Further music was recorded for the audiobook versions of the series and is attributed to The Gothic Archies. The Tragic Treasury was released by Nonesuch Records in October 2006 along with the 13th and final book of the series.


Merritt is known for having a dry personality, embracing a persona and life that is very different from the traditional rock star image. In September 2005, an interviewer quoted an anonymous reviewer to Bob Mould that Mould was “the most depressed man in rock.” Mould’s response was “He’s never met Stephin Merritt, obviously.”


He and director Chen Shi-Zheng have collaborated on three pieces of musical theatre; The Orphan of Zhao (2003), Peach Blossom Fan (2004) and My Life as a Fairy Tale (2005). Selected tracks from these works have been released on Nonesuch Records under the title Showtunes.


Merritt is an atheist, wears only brown clothing, is openly gay and a vegan, saying, “I ain’t et an animal since 1983.”
