Based out of Dallas, Texas, Salim Nourallah is a songwriter and vocalist whose resumé ranges from quiet ballads to rave-up rock. Nourallah first came to the public's attention in 2001 with the release of two very different albums -- Nourallah Brothers, a collection of intelligent and atmospheric pop songs written and recorded with his brother Faris Nourallah, and Self-Improvement?, the uptempo power pop-styled debut from Salim's other group, the Happiness Factor. In 2003, Salim also launched a solo career with the release of the EP A Way to Your Heart; a full-length solo project, Polaroid, followed in 2004. Nourallah released Beautiful Noise a year later in 2005 on the German indie label Tapete Records, which also issued Snowing in My Heart in 2007 and Constellation in 2009. Also in 2009, Nourallah recorded a fourth album for Tapete, Hit Parade, but the project wasn't released until early in 2012. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
