Singer, writer, pianist, activist and blogger, Amanda Palmer embraces and explodes the traditional setting of music, community theater and art. She begins to make a name for herself with her duet The Dresden Dolls, Boston’s punk / cabaret project, with theatricality and innovative composition praised by critics. His solo career is equally audacious and rebellious, with works as revolutionary as THEATER IS EVIL, the fruit of crowdfunding, which debuted at the top 10 of the SoundScan / Billboard 200 when it was released in 2012. It is still at the top of the projects financed by Kickstarter. In 2013, she presented The Art of Asking at the TED conference, which has since been seen more than 10 million times around the world. The following year, Palmer extended his philosophical approach with his book, The Art of Asking: New York Times best-seller, How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Let People Help. The audiobook The Art of Asking, which she recorded herself, also topped the New York Times best-sellers list.
In 2015, Palmer joined forces with Patreon to further develop his revolutionary self-help model with fans and the arts community. In fact, 12,000 people support the obviously inexhaustible creativity of the artist. Among his Patreon creations, his “Patreon Things“, which she releases on average two a month, are performance projects and complete works.
On March 8, 2019, she released her third solo album There Will Be No Intermission, the most powerful and personal opus of the multi-faceted artist. As dark as it is exhilarating, it brings a new dimension to Amanda Palmer’s extraordinary talent. It illustrates once again a mastery of composition at the peak of its power. This unique artist has shaped humor, tears, confession and suffering into a work of art without equal. This miracle, which could have been gloomy and dismal, proves to be relevant, full of inspiration, and healing.
On the stage of the Bataclan on September 28, 2019, Palmer will accompany the piano and ukulele, but without a group. A night of fairy tales and honest, funny and explicit songs that Palmer describes as “his most humane and vulnerable stage set to date”.
