Jonathan Coulton is from the Internet. While a struggling music industry fell to pieces over file sharing and shifting business models, he quietly and independently amassed a small army of techies, nerds, and dedicated superfans. His songs cover an eclectic range of subjects, from zombies and mad scientists to marriage and parenthood (and now, Spongebob!). You may know him from many things, including the songs from the Portal games, his work on the NPR quiz show "Ask Me Another," or his annual comedy music cruise, the JoCo Cruise. His latest release is "Solid State," a sci-fi concept album (with a companion graphic novel by Matt Fraction and Albert Monteys) about internet culture, trolls, and how love and empathy may yet keep the world from ending.
