#071: Allison Weiss – The Kickstarter effect

Allison Weiss is a true DIY artist eager to get her music career moving forward, but being a college student makes touring and getting beyond her local scene a challenge.  To keep the dialogue going with her fans, Allison leverages the power of Twitter, Live Stream, and You Tube to communicate with her audience and build an active fan base.  When it came time to fund her most recent recording, she asked her fans for help. Allison encouraged her fans to help finance the recording through an online service called Kickstarter.   The result was overwhelming as Alison reached her goal in only 10 hours!  Are fan funded albums the future?
