How To Release an Album in the 21st Century | The Shape of Music to Come | Scoop.it

A few days ago, I organized and ran sound for Amanda Palmer’s Kickstarter party.

Some of you may know Palmer for her work with her old band, The Dresden Dolls, for her solo albums on Roadrunner Records, or for her collaborations with her husband, the acclaimed author Neil Gaiman.

Those of you who haven’t heard of Amanda Palmer probably will this week. That’s because the final tally of contributions to her Kickstarter campaign exceeded $1 Million – roughly 4 times that of the next highest-grossing musical act to use the platform.
