Chantelle Tibbs has a Story to tellâ€¦ Chantelle Tibbs tells stories so good that she takes people away from their own stories. She is a storyteller through her music, acting, and her nonprofit, which inspires other artists to follow in her footsteps and share their stories. Most of all, Chantelle lives the stories she tells and practices the words she preaches, in every single thing that she does. Chantelle is an accomplished national touring ambient-folk singer, guitar player, songwriter, recording artist, co-creator of the band Kamp Camille, actor, and creator of the non-profit organization for artists, Money be Green. The part of her story that makes her a unique character in this artistic novel she has written for herself â€“ is that she gets paid to do all of these things. Money Be Green Through her nonprofit Money be Green (est. 2009), Chantelle educates her fellow artists about the myths and realities of money and wealth and even donates 5% of her own income so they can rewrite their own stories. Money Be Green gives other artists $50 to put towards their own artand or living expenses. The application process is easy and based on trust. No invasive creditquestions, the idea is to give the artist money (a fish), briefly share a money management system that worked for Chantelle personally, and that she still uses today, (teach how to fish), and then trust the artist with the money. The idea is that the trust alone makes the artist feel empowered and will inspire them start managing their money.
Kamp Camille – In March of 2010, while on tour in Olympia, Washington on a solo project Chantelle came up with the name â€œKamp Camilleâ€ for a band she had just formed with singer/songwriter Nathan Hughes. Today the characters in Kamp Camille include Chantelle, Nathan Hughes, along with Nathan Heintz on keys, and Taylor Lissandrello on drums. Connect with Chantelle Tibbs and get inspired today!
