Support Melissa Czarnik's next Album "Non Merci"


I have long been a fan of Melissa Czarnik. And for a while now, a friend of the Milwaukee emcee/poet. In the world of the Internets and just online communications, Melissa is one of those rare folks that I know off line. She's a great person too. We had a discussion last year about the possibility of an artist residency. I'm happy that panned out for her. Now she's asking for your support to help make her next album, Non Merci, while in France. It's a huge opportunity for her to focus solely on the creation of new music. I believe in supporting good people. So, support if you can too. And with that, I'll let her take it from here.
I wanted to let you know about this crowd funding campaign to help make my next album, Non Merci in France. Yes, France!  I have been accepted into an artist residency at the Camac Centre D'Art in Marnay-sur-Seine (about an hour from Paris).  With help from individuals like you I'll have the opportunity to spend two months (April & May) at the residency focusing solely on creation.  As an artist, this is the kind of thing one only dreams about! And here we are!

Each level of support ranging from $10-$500 will guarantee a pre-release copy of the album (for you), due to be released summer 2012!  Plus, you can go to sleep at night knowing that you made a friend, fellow woman, artist, AmeriCorps Alumna and poet's dream come true!
