Salim Nourallah

Salim Nourallah is a North Texas music scene fixture. After gaining initial acclaim with the Denton-based Nourallah Brothers he has gone on to release several solo albums and produce an impressive list of many others (including the Old 97s, Rhett Miller, Deathray Davies & Smile Smile). His solo debut, Polaroid (2004), was met with reviews like this one: “discovering a singer-songwriter who can stop time is rare, but Salim Nourallah is such a find…” (Rolling Stone). Beautiful Noise followed in 2006 to more critical acclaim and he swept the Observer music awards with Best Album/Best Song and Best Producer. Salim has gone on to win 7 consecutive Observer Awards for Best Producer, toured Europe three times and had songs placed on HBO’s the Wire, ABC’s Smallville and the Academy Award winning movie the Wrestler. He recently launched a new project called The Disappearing Act and his 5th solo cd, Hit Parade, was released in March 2012 by the German indie label, Tapete Records.
