“Don’t make people pay for music,” says Amanda Palmer, “Let them.” In a passionate TED talk, Palmer recounts her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), and takes a closer look at the relationship between artists and their fans.
When I first saw Amanda Palmer’s Ted Talk, promised myself I would reach out to her until she would sit down with me. Amanda Palmer is a shocking anomaly in this world – an extremely sensitive and brilliant individual who is committed to living and more importantly teaching her truth. I would label Amanda a teacher first and foremost… a teacher of acceptance, uniqueness and of the heart.
The video, melody and lyrics of this song will impact any person who has committed to deeply connect in relationship with another. The theme uniquely addresses humanity’s fear of intimacy in a powerful and impactful manner. Thank you Amanda Palmer for your power and teaching.
