Amanda Palmer is a singer, writer, pianist, activist and blogger who simultaneously embraces and explodes traditional frameworks of music, theatre, community and art. She first came to prominence as one half of the Boston based punk cabaret duo The Dresden Dolls, earning global applause for their wide-ranging theatricality and inventive song craft. Her solo career has proven equally brave and boundless, including such groundbreaking works as the fan-funded THEATRE IS EVIL,= which made a top 10 debut on the Sound Scan/Billboard 200 upon its 2012 release and remains the top-funded music project on Kick starter.

In 2013 she presented The Art of Asking at the annual TED conference, which has since been viewed over 10 million times worldwide. The following year saw Palmer expand her philosophy into the New York Times bestseller, The Art of Asking: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Let People Help. The Art of Asking audio-book, which Palmer recorded herself, also topped the New York Times bestseller chart. In 2015, Palmer joined forces with Patreon to further develop her revolutionary model of fan support and artistic community, and where 15,000 people help support Palmer’s seemingly infinite creative output. The growing list of “Patreon Things” Palmer releases an average of two a month now includes songs, original films (her politically charged video “Mr. Weinstein Will See You Now”, a collaboration with choreographer Noemie Lafrance, took the internet by storm), performance projects, and such full-length collections as Can Spin a Rainbow, her acclaimed 2017 collaboration with Edward Ka-Spel
