NICK ALIBERTI - LEAD VOCALS/GUITAR/PIANO
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. After less than a year playing in Nevada, Kingwhistler has already 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.
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.
