Submission + - Amanda Palmer raises $1M from fans for her album (blogspot.com) 1

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: "The music industry will never be the same. Singer Amanda Palmer (@amandapalmer on Twitter), has just raised over $1,000,000 directly from her fans, through Twitter and other social media, to mix, promote, and distribute her new album. Armed only with a Kickstarter page, social media accounts, and a lot of friends, she has just liberated a lot of musicians from the tyranny of having to 'sign' with a big studio. I predict music business historians will be writing about this day for years to come. The "big 4" record companies just got a lot smaller."

  • Having one of the most successful authors of the late 20th, early 21st century as a spouse probably doesn't hurt either. Unless he's really really large, in which case having Neil as a husband could hurt. Wouldn't know really.
