Melissa Czarnik


If Lauryn Hill, Robert Glasper and Hiatus Kaiyote ever made a love child, it would mostly likely be songwriter Melissa Czarnik. This genre busting soulful-emcee, is an ever-evolving idiom worth dissecting, studying and pouring over. Her music fuses elements of poetry into an eclectic mix that soothes jazz and hip hop lovers alike. She performs live with Eric Joseph Meyer (keys/loop pedal), Meredith Butterworth (backing vocals/djembe), and Ari Folman-Cohen (bass). Read more on Last.fm

Her music fuses elements of poetry into an eclectic mix that soothes jazz and hip hop lovers alike. She performs live with Eric Joseph Meyer (keys/loop pedal), Meredith Butterworth (backing vocals/djembe), and Ari Folman-Cohen (bass). Czarnik has toured the U.S.

and Europe performing at notable venues such as the Green Mill (Chicago), Woodland Pattern Book Center (Milwaukee), Knitting Factory (Brooklyn), Blue Note (NYC), Le Tavernier (Brussels). She has been recognized as one of New York City's "Best Emerging Artists" by The Deli Magazine NYC and NPR hails her as "soulful, fluid rapper [that has] produced a surprising, potent and thoughtful mix of funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop." "With slammin’ poetry, precise beats, and DIY authenticity, Czarnik is an inspiration to young MC’s everywhere." -Claire Ashton, Bitch Magazine "Her musicality is inclusive enough to envelop folk, jazz and pop sensibilities in loops and live instrumentation...Czarnik may not be out to set the world ablaze as a female counterpart to Eminem, but she'll fire up listeners to grab notebooks and microphones and set their observations to sounds not beholden to any commercial R&B radio format." - Jamie Lee Rake, Shepherd Express “Czarnik is a soulful, fluid rapper, backed by the five-piece Eric Mire Band. Together, they’ve produced a surprising, potent and thoughtful mix of funk, jazz, soul and hip-hop.” – Robin Hilton, NPR, All Songs Considered “It’s as surprising a pairing as it is effective…Hard-hitting and smooth at once.” – Mike Levine, Deli Magazine NYC “A class slice of socially-conscious hip hop that bodes well for the LP [Non Merci].” – Amy Bell, The Girls Are “This incredible young rapper from Milwaukee had me under her spell from the first to last moments of her album… This girl is going all the way.” – Chloe Veltman, VoiceBox, KALW 91.7FM Read more on Last.fm.
