NAMO Collaborative Pop Album!!

$7,010

242

Asher Peterson is bringing together a team of 10 artists to make a 10-track collaborative album under the name NAMO. The music will be written and produced by Asher, and the 10 artists will collaborate on lyrics and each be featured on a track. They released their debut EP ("Rain") this past spring featuring 4 artists as an experiment. After growing and learning through that process, Asher has now decided to add more collaborators and take the next step to record a full-length studio record! 

The vibe of this record will be a blend of lush synths, layered vocals, live and programmed percussion, textured guitars/pianos, and organic/experimental sounds. Asher's production is influenced by bands like M83, The Japanese House, The National, Bleachers, and Bon Iver, to name a few.

Every single one of the artists in this campaign is so talented. They range from indie-pop, to hip-hop, to epic cinematic scores. They write real, thoughtful lyrics, and beautiful melodies. You can check most of these guys' music out on iTunes/Spotify if you want a teaser of what to expect on their NAMO track!

The Budget

Assuming we reach the $6,500 goal, here's the breakdown of where your money is going-

  • $3,000 will go towards mixing/mastering. 
  • $500 for Kickstarter fees.
  • $1,500 will be used to pay for tracking (Drums, Guitars, BGVs, etc.).
  • $500 will be for album art/design, distribution, and marketing.
  • $1,000 will be used to pay the artists.
  • If we happen to exceed the $6,500 goal, we'll have a little bit of flexibility to do some cool things (String arrangements, Better recording gear, etc.).

Rewards

There are several awesome rewards in this campaign. In addition to releasing the 10 song record, we'll also have an instrumental version available! You can also get things like hand-writen lyrics, or even your name in the credits of the record. Check out the tiers!

Timeline

After the campaign ends, NAMO will start to take off! The writing process will begin, and we'll be writing/recording in Nashville until early 2019. Once it's finished, we'll send it off to be mixed and mastered. Once it's all polished up, We'll be ready for a release in late April or May. 

About the Producer

Asher was born and raised in Nashville, TN. He works as Ben Shive's assistant engineer/programmer at "The Beehive" recording studio, and has played drums and percussion on various tours over the years. His main passion is recording and producing music. He released an EP in early 2018 with some friends as an experiment under the name "NAMO". After receiving lots of encouraging feedback, he decided to launch this Kickstarter to take advantage of the community of artists in Nashville. 

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who is helping me do this. It means so much to me and I'm so excited to make music with my friends. NAMO NAMO 209
