Amanda Palmer is a one-in-a-generation artist. From her beginnings as a performance artist in Boston, to the cult band Dresden Dolls, to her work as a solo musician and performer, her music is searingly honest and brilliantly crafted. She is one of the original industry disrupters, trusting her fans to support, house, feed, and even play with her, a DIY approach that was perfectly suited to the digital age, where she has flourished as a fan-funded artist. Her new album with Edward Ka-Spel is called ‘I Can Spin A Rainbow’, and Una Mullally spoke to her about this and more from Paris recently. https://www.patreon.com/amandapalmer
