Who are NoMad Dreams?
We started playing together about four years ago. Our greatest ambition then was playing at a restaurant a few times. Which we did. And then it turned out we could also write songs together. Songs people actually liked! So we raised the bar: gave the band a name, looked for more and better gigs, and added a few members.
Where can you listen to our music?
What’s our genre?
Each time we tried to define our genre, we failed spectacularly! Because every new song we write seems to fit in another category: funk, country, samba, waltz, ballad, bossa, folk… And through all that, our love for jazz and French chanson left its traces in the melodies and harmonies. So, for now, we’ll go by indie folk jazz.
Why might you like our music?
What unifies our music is a love for twists, paradoxes, and complex characters. We write sincere lyrics, but each song has a new persona – it is as much a dramatic performance as a confession. So the album will present not only a collection of songs, but a kaleidoscope of protagonists – from an unemployed writer to a corrupt politician to a vindictive lover.
Why record an LP now?
At every gig, people keep asking us for recordings they could listen to in their cars or with their friends. We also believe our songs deserve to be heard by people who could not make it to our gigs.
How are we going to spend the money?
The money will go towards paying for a professional producer and studio time required for recording, mixing, editing and mastering. We also need to pay for album artwork and printing CDs.
What if we raise more money than expected?
-We would like to have guest performers join us during the recording (sax, strings, etc.)
-Record more songs.
-Record music video(s).
Does any of this really matter?
Recording this album is an essential and necessary step in our musical lives. There is no question or doubt in our minds that it will be accomplished, the only question is how soon. With your help the album will be finished by next summer!
Risks and challenges
Just like everyone else, we are constantly facing regular everyday difficulties that all bands have to work with: schedules, other jobs, distances to be traveled, etc., but we have regularly managed to overcome such obstacles before and will overcome them now. And the only real risk we are facing is not raising enough money through this campaign - but we know you will not let this happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
