Writer, singer, musician and lyricist Amanda Palmer has garnered a vibrant cult following for her creative outputs which include a New York Times best-selling memoir, and manifesto The Art of Asking. She is supported by a circle of almost 15,000 patrons across the globe who micro-fund her writing and work through the Patreon platform.
Slated to finish an 80-date international tour of her third solo studio album, the searingly stark There Will Be No Intermission, in Wellington in 2020 as Covid struck, she is currently working from the Antipodes.
In a conversation with writer and friend Catherine Robertson she canvasses widely around the importance of telling our stories and speaking our truths, writing through grief and discomfort, and the juggle of whānau, community, and expression, and offers up some ukulele interludes.
Amanda Palmer is also appearing in An Evening with Neil Gaiman & Amanda Palmer.
Amanda Palmer is a best-selling author, songwriter, crowdfunding enthusiast, and community leader. She is one half of the punk cabaret band The Dresden Dolls and regularly performs her own headline concerts globally. Her most recent book is an essay and photographic companion to her third solo studio album There Will Be No Intermission.
