Amanda Palmer

A singer, songwriter, pianist, writer, and performance artist with an experimental bent, Amanda Palmer was known as half of the Dresden Dolls before embarking on a solo career in 2007. She’s also known for being half of the duo Evelyn Evelyn and for various side projects, including collaborations with Ben Folds, Jherek Bischoff, Brendan Maclean, her father, Jack Palmer, and her husband, writer Neil Gaiman.

Before she co-founded the “Brecht-ian punk cabaret” duo the Dresden Dolls, Palmer was a Wesleyan University graduate who had been involved in theater for a number of years. After college, she founded the Shadowbox Collective, a group that performed plays as well as street theater. (Palmer herself was a busker who performed as a living statue.) In 2000, she met drummer Brian Viglione. Though Palmer didn’t read music, she formed the Dresden Dolls with him a year later and became the main musical force behind the group. She also continued to explore other creative avenues, and in 2006 released The Dresden Dolls Companion, a book that featured original art, a history of the band and its first album, and a partial autobiography by Palmer. At the end of that year, the Dresden Dolls performed the Palmer-penned musical The Onion Cellar with the American Repertory Theater.
