Amanda Palmer first gained widespread recognition in 2003 when her band The Dresden Dolls released their self-titled debut album.
But it was in 2012 that she really captured the world’s attention when she raised $1.2 million through a Kickstarter campaign to record her album 'Theatre is Evil'.
In many ways it kickstarted a love-hate relationship between Amanda and the internet. On the upside she’s been able to connect directly with her fanbase via platforms such as Patreon. At times, though, she's been viciously attacked, such as when she wrote a poem referencing Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Despite such controversies, Amanda has never shied away from following her artistic muse, as she explains in this interview.
