Weyes Blood

Natalie Mering, known professionally as Weyes Blood, is an American musician. She has released three albums and an EP, and is noted for her collaborations with Ariel Pink. Mering was born in Santa Monica, California and grew up in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Both her parents were musicians and music played an important part in her Christian upbringing. At the age of 15 Mering rebelled against her parents’ religious upbringing and began using the moniker Weyes Blood to write songs. She took the name from the Flannery O’Connor novel Wise Blood.
