Salim Nourallah is a multi-talented musician-producer. Most recently he's worked with Old 97's, Rhett Miller and Buttercup, some of my favorite acts. And, his latest solo effort Constellation, which is a gem, was produced by Austin's Billy Harvey, another of my favorites. I was delighted when Salim invited me to his Pleasantry Lane Studios in Dallas last weekend, when I was in town for the Cystic Fibrosis Concert Series that he played along with Rhett Miller and The O's at the Granada Theater. Salim's a most gracious individual, and I loved learning more about his background and his craft.
