Hi,                                                                                                                  my name is NIMO KALLY, born and raised in Tel Aviv (Israel). I've lived in New York for the past 13 years, in which I perfected my craft as a songwriter & performer.It took a lot to get here, and i feel that THIS IS IT ! I put all my sweat and hours, for this very moment - the release of NIMO & THE LIGHT's 1st full length album, "DON'T FEED THE PIGEONS".

Upon arrival in New York, I founded an alternative ROCK band, with my friend Yosi Levin, called "Tree Of Mind", in which i was mostly behind the scenes, while he was the front man. We've played A lot in New York, and even recorded a couple of EP's.The band broke up, and i started my journey as a solo artist. That was probably the turning point. I knew i needed to go SOLO, so immediately started writing my own lyrics to melodies and songs i already composed.

In 2012 I released my 1st EP "Espresso River", (available on iTunes, spotify ), an album i wrote & composed. I also co-produced with producer/engineer Zak Soulam (Suzanne Vega,Trans-Siberian Orchestra). I Had the honor to have drummer Joe Bonadio (Sting ,Spin doctors) playing on this album too.                                                                                           

THE BANDnIMO & The Light is an INDIE ROCK  band based in New York City, Featuring :

NIMO KALLY on vocals/guitar                                                            SHAHAR MINTZ on guitars                                                                     BRIAN KARP on bass                                                                        STEFANO BALDASSERONI on drums                                                     CHEN PRAT on backing vocals. 

We've just finished recording our Debut LP "DON'T FEED THE PIGEONS". and we need you in order to give it a kick-ass release .

THE STORY BEHIND THE NAME : Sometime around 2008 i recall crossing a park in New York, noticing A sign saying "Do Not Feed The Pigeons", it sounded so determined and strong to me, but at the same time, not very clear. Why not feed them?! it ignited enough excitement in me, so  I whispered to myself :"That's gonna be my debut album title."

THE ALBUM : DON'T FEED THE PIGEONS, is a collection of 9 indie/rock-pop songs. These are my favorite songs out of dozens written. Mainly written on acoustic guitar, but when we recorded it as a full band, it got so much more depth and dynamics. It has a hefty dose of beautiful guitar lines, melodies, and epic choruses. I'm very proud of this album, it surely is A great representation of my years in this powerful and amazing city, as an artist.

FUNDS: I funded this project myself so far, including paying for studio time, top notch musicians, engineers and so on . We've exhausted all of our financial resources (me, practically), and we're short the last and final portion.

PROJECT GOALS : WE CAN'T EMPHASIZE ENOUGH, HOW IMPORTANT IT IS FOR US, THAT YOU SHARE IT !

SHARE! SHARE! SHARE! 

The album is already recorded , but we only need to MIX, MASTER, PACKAGE & RELEASE IT.                                

This Kickstarterpigeons campaign is an all or nothing campaign, meaning if we don't meet our goal, we lose all the funds we already have. We'd like to get  this music, to as many people's hands as possible, first and foremost yours .

PLEASE SHARE IT: The best way to help is to share it on your social media (FB,TWEETER,INSTAGRAM), and tell your friends, and families about it. DID WE SAY IT'S IMPORTANT?!?

HERE'S HOW WE GONNA DO IT

If we fund $5000, It will break down this way: 

MIX: $400 per song x 7(2 ALREADY MIXED) = $2800. 

MASTER: $250 a song x9=$2250. 

KICKSTARTER/AMAZON: Kickstarter takes 5% of the total if you achieve your goal, and Amazon takes around 3-5%. We need $5500 for the album, and that will result in around $500 in fees. 

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME TO THE PICTURE : We want you to join our team, and become an active member of our kickstarterpigeons family. By pledging to our cause, you join the group of the executive producers of this album. Together with you, and other music lovers around the world, we want to put the best product possible.

HOW TO PLEDGE:                                                                                       We've created a super cool pigeon-reward list .                                                       get any reward of your choice, from the list on the right. You can pick your favorite reward for your pledge, or just pledge with no reward.

STRETCH GOAL #1: $8K

A vinyl release . We really dream on having these, but they're very expensive to produce, so that stretch is for the purpose of sending you an outstanding product in the form of a vinyl record with cover art.

STRETCH GOAL #2: $10K

Public relations & Radio campaign to blow out the release !

STRETCH GOAL #3: $12K

Music festival submissions .

much love !

Risks and challenges

ONE MAJOR RISK : THIS IS A KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN ,MEANING IT'S AN "ALL OR NOTHING" PLATFORM . IF WE DON'T MEET OUR GOAL ,WE LOSE ALL THE FUNDS WE ALREADY HAVE.
Other than that ,there are no big risks involved .the album is already recorded ,so if we reach our goal ,it's gonna serve the sole purpose of post production & distribution,if we don't then it'll just take us way more time to finish it.
