If a Beatle was left in the desert at age 3 and raised in El Paso, Texas, you’d have Salim Nourallah…
Salim is a North Texas music scene fixture. After gaining initial acclaim with the Denton-based Nourallah Brothers he’s gone on to release a half dozen solo albums and produce a fine list of many others (including the Old 97s, Rhett Miller, Deathray Davies & the Damnwells). 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 Salim swept the Dallas Observer music awards with Best Album/Best Song and Best Producer. Salim went on to win 7 consecutive Observer Awards for Best Producer. His 5th solo cd, Hit Parade, was released in April 2012 by the German indie label, Tapete Records. Hit Parade garnered more favorable press like “Coupling catchy rock with mature but not old lyrics, Nourallah has assembled the best album of his career…”
