Jonathan Coulton

Jonathan Coulton writes and records sweetly melodic folk-pop tunes about brain-eating zombies and lovestruck mad scientists. His geek-powered lyrics have earned him an Internet following so dedicated that his fans have produced hours of music videos to accompany his songs. In addition to receiving big ups from the gamer community for his song “Still Alive,” written for the end credits of the critically acclaimed video game Portal, Coulton’s become famous for setting himself a seemingly impossible goal: Create one new song every week for a year. The project forms the bulk of his music to date, and can be found in a four CD set, Thing a Week 1-4. WARD RUBRECHT
