Update 4/8/2013: This campaign has been canceled, but if you’re interested in supporting Mel’s music or learning more, you should contact her at melanielhsu(at)gmail(dot)com.
Wes legend Mel Hsu ’13 needs some monetary assistance putting out two new albums before her graduation. To hear some of the beauty she’s unleashed previously, check out her solo album This Living Room and her album with Josh Smith ’11, Analogue. She was also a member of Honey and the Sting, the music thesis band of Sam Long ’12. These amazing albums just brush the surface of Mel’s many accomplishments throughout her time here. It’s upon us to support Mel in her last large musical endeavors at Wesleyan.
Dearest Wes,I have been working on a lot of new music that is near and dear to my heart. Jess Best ’14, Jared Paul ’11 and I have been finding the most cost-efficient, high-quality and financially sustainable ways to record all the music (in the form of two albums) before I graduate. Any amount you might feel comfortable donating to our Indiegogo campaign would help us out significantly with recording costs. The support from this campus has meant the world to me over the past four years, so I thank you (with a giant bear-hug) for helping me make the music happen.
With love and gratitude,
