About the event
This week we have Kingwhistler who is a singer, songwriter, frontman, and producer. Come along and have a listen, tap your toes and #KeepOnWhistlin!
"Frontman and songwriter, Nick Aliberti, draws inspiration from his travels, having lived all over the country from Maine to Arizona, New York City to Los Angeles, and all the way to Carson City, NV where he currently resides. Kingwhistler has played to rave reviews at some of the most iconic music venues in Hollywood including The Viper Room, Hotel Cafe, and The House of Blues. Kingwhistler kicked off the Levitt Amp Summer Series at the Brewery Arts Center opening for “Antsy McClain,” opened for “The Black Lillies” at Piper’s Opera House, played festivals such as the Nevada State Fair, been featured on KNVC, and played numerous solo shows and private events throughout Northern Nevada. Nick received the prestigious Performing Artist Grant for Songwriting in 2019 from the Sierra Arts Foundation. He was also selected to be part of the exclusive Ben Folds Songwriter Retreat in 2021 with mentors Ben Folds and Dave Stroud.
The Kingwhistler concept came to Nick upon moving from the East coast to the West in 2009. It was then that he decided to direct all of his creative energy into this sound and style. Nick joined up with Ben Perry to produce the first KW Single, "Holiday Homeward," and finding success, the two decided to continue working together. Nick staged the "Grass Routes Campaign" in 2012 to raise the funds for the debut Kingwhistler album, and after assembling a team of fine musicians tracked and released "Grass Routes" with Perry at the helm of the Mix.
"Grass Routes", the debut Kingwhistler album, was released June 20, 2014 and drew acclaim from industry professionals and music publications like the Modern Rock Review. Nick released the single “Jacaranda" in 2020 and the single “Two by Two” in 2021. Keep a lookout for a new EP from Kingwhistler coming in 2022."
