Jonathan Coulton

Channeling the spirit of fellow Yankees They Might Be Giants, Jonathan Coulton is a singer/songwriter who is trying to make a living from music whilst being totally independent and giving his songs away under the Creative Commons license. Whilst I’m sure this is a guaranteed recipe for total failure and abject poverty, his music is really very good indeed.

Highlights include “RE: Your Brains” (about being a zombie), “Mandlebrot Set” (a tribute to the famous fractal) and “Tom Cruise Crazy” (which is, frankly, just asking for a lawsuit).

Given that I’m thinking about buying some of his music now, maybe he’s actually on to something here.
