Naim Amor is a Frenchman among the saguaros of Tucson, Ariz. Since moving there with his wife Marianne Dissard in 1997, Amor has had a hand in numerous projects, including the Amor Belhom Duo and a collaboration with Giant Sand, as well as several instrumental and vocal albums as a solo artist.
Amor enlisted the producing skills of Calexico's Joey Burns for his 2007 album "Sanguine", a mature, French odd pop album recorded with both Burns and drummer John Convertino.
Amor's first album, "Mistake Love", was produced by John Parish in 2004, with musicians Tasha Bundy and Nathan Sabatino, and lyrics by Marianne Dissard.
Amor's previous incarnation, AMOR BELHOM DUO, saw him collaborate with Calexico (album "ABBC/Tête à Tête"), release three albums ("Amor Belhom Duo", "Wavelab" and "Live In Tucson") on Carrot Top Records in the US and Ici D'Ailleurs in Europe, and tour the US and Europe opening for Miossec, Handsome Family, Calla, David Grubbs, Sparklehorse, Modest Mouse, Calexico, Giant Sand…
In addition to his "singing" albums, Amor is also recording an ongoing series of instrumental albums: "Soundtracks: Volume One" (FilmGuerrero, 2002) and "Soundtracks: Volume Two" (Howe Gelb's OWOM Records, 2004). Naim has composed for Francoiz Breut and Marianne Dissard and recorded with Devotchka, Valérie Leulliot, Marie Frank, Howe Gelb, Calexico, Marianne Dissard, Pieta Brown, Tom Walbank, Al Foul, John Convertino…
