Nicholas Altobelli (born February 11, 1985) is an American indie folk singer and songwriter based in Dallas, Texas.


Altobelli's debut self-released album, Waiting for the Flowers to Bloom, was released during the winter of 2008.[1] His self-released follow up, The Regulator, was released during the spring of 2010.[2] Shortly after the release of The Regulator, Altobelli launched his own label, Dalton Records,[3] where he released 2011's Radio Waves and Telephone Wire.[4] The album featured a duet with former Whiskeytown member, Caitlin Cary. Fort Worth Star Telegram/ ranked Radio Waves and Telephone Wire Number 7 for its top ten albums of 2011.[5] Later that year he was nominated for solo act of the year by the Dallas Observer.[6]

In the spring and summer of 2012, Altobelli went into the studio with producer, Salim Nourallah, to work on a brand new album. Unlike his previous albums, this album tends to stray away from the acoustic folk that he is known for.[7] The album features John Dufilho and Grammy winner and nominee Joe Reyes as well as many other Dallas musicians. Without a Home was released on February 26, 2013.

Altobelli announced on his website on May 16, 2014 that his new EP, Mesocyclone, will be released on August 5, 2014.
