n-Somnia is a solo project formed by New Zealand musician, Jared Rowbotham. Formerly a member of a rock band called Supertrip, Jared went solo (after a few years absence) in 2002 under the name n-Somnia, experimenting with electronic sounds.
This solo project reached its peak around November/December 2002, when a song called "Robot Lover From Mars" reached #1 on one of BeSonic.com's various charts. The follow-up release, however, was a flop. After this, the project became an off-and-on affair. Briefly in 2004, n-Somnia made a comeback with a song called "Toy Store", before being put in hiatus, as Jared started to focus on a new project - Kingrow.
With Kingrow becoming more promising, n-Somnia came back in 2006 with a couple remixes of his 2002 song, "Eliminator", before the project was retired. The final n-Somnia release was an online self-titled compilation album in 2007.
However, the hiatus would be only temporary. Only 5 years later, in 2011, n-Somnia announced a comeback, and a full-length album to accompany it. n-Somnia's first real album, "The Awakening", is planned for an April release.
