Singer/songwriter Jill Sobule, who "Kissed a Girl" far more convincingly than Katy Perry in 1995, raised the money for her seventh full-length album through fan donations. That she managed to meet her projected target of $75,000 (recording, manufacturing, distribution, and promotion) in fewer than three months says more about the state of the music industry in the late 2000s than any RIAA lawsuit or major-label meltdown ever could. Artists build the fire but it's the fans who keep it lit, something Sobule knows well, as she promised each of her rock & roll philanthropists a gift proportionate to their donation (free album download, sit in on a recording session, album group vocal appearance).

Singer/songwriter Jill Sobule rose to fame on the strength of her 1995 hit single "I Kissed a Girl," a tongue in cheek nod to the media's fascination with "lesbian chic." Born in Denver, CO in 1961, Sobule grew enamored of rock music at a young age, but did not seriously consider a career as a performer until she spent her junior year of college abroad in Spain. Upon her return to the U.S., she dropped out of school to devote her full energies to music, but her work found little success as she battled...
