Indie folk rock musician Jonathan Coulton turns 50 today, so here’s a 30-minute documentary I made about his career.
This is a video I made for the Jonathan Coulton song ‘Just As Long As Me’ in December of 2010.
It features pictures of the very tall and very funny comedian Stephen Merchant.
This is a video I made over ten years ago, featuring Jonathan Coulton’s folksy soft-rock cover of Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’, the 52nd and final song he did for his Thing-A-Week project.
Jonathan Coulton was born on the 1st of December 1970 in New Haven, Connecticut.
He had hopes of becoming a musician from a young age. So while studying for his Bachelor of Arts degree at Yale University, he was part of several bands with fellow students. Most notably the collegiate a capella group The Yale Whiffenpoofs.
