#007 : Jonathan Coulton – Turning 1 song a week into 1,000’s of new fans!

CD Baby artist Jonathan Coultan, a self proclaimed “codemonkey,” blogger, and musician, hit upon a simple idea that would gain him international attention. In 2005 he began what he aptly named, “Thing a Week” an exhausting songwriting feat which involved, writing, recording, and publishing a new song every week for a year. During this endeavor, Jonathan found widespread interest in his ambitious project. Jonathan’s dedicated personal interactions with his audience, won him an adoring (if not bordering on obsessive) fan base. Listen, as Jonathan tells us of how a struggling CD BABY musician and computer programer found himself in the pages of The New York Times.
