    Paolo Giovanni Nutini (b. 1987) is a Scottish singer-songwriter. His influences include David Bowie, Damien Rice, Oasis, The Beatles, U2, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac.

    Born on born 9th January 1987 in Paisley, Scotland, his father is of Italian descent and his mother Glaswegian, although his father’s family have been in Scotland for four generations. Nutini had no formal music training, and was expecting to follow his father into the family fish and chip shop business. He was first encouraged to sing by his music-loving grandfather and a teacher at his school who recognised his talent. He left school to work as a roadie and to sell T-shirts for Speedway and spent three years learning the music business, performing live, alone and with a band, and working as a studio hand at Glasgow’s Park Lane Studio.

    His big chance came when he attended a concert for David Sneddon’s return to his home town of Paisley at the beginning of 2003. Sneddon was delayed, and as the winner of an impromptu pop quiz, Nutini was given the chance to perform a couple of songs on stage during the wait. The favourable reaction of the crowd impressed another member of the audience, who offered to become his manager.

    A Daily Record journalist, John Dingwall, saw him performing at the Queen Margaret Union, and invited him to appear live on Radio Scotland. Still only seventeen, he moved to London, and performed regularly at the Bedford pub in Balham whilst still legally too young to drink alcohol himself. Other radio and live appearances followed, including two live acoustic spots on Radio London, The Hard Rock Cafe, and support slots for Amy Winehouse and KT Tunstall.
    Pop's most beautiful man.

    New album scheduled for this year.

    I've been a fan since his debut album, I love him.

    Any other fans? What's everyone's favourite songs/albums/performances?

    I'm re-watching his 2010 T In The Park set at the moment, its pretty excellent!

    Never been a fan but after watching the Abbey Road session of Iron Sky, I think he may have something I can get into. (Nasty thoughts)

    Great voice, there's something Bob Marley about it.

    Big fan of Paolo. First two albums are fantastic. I expect more of the same with the third one.

    Huge fan here. I like the 1st album, but the 2nd one I simply adore. I hope he can top that with this next one.

    Great, thought there'd be a couple of fans here!

    I've just re-purchased his two albums on iTunes [£4.99 each - bargain!] - have physical copies of them somewhere, but thought I'd download them again anyway.

    Going to give them both a listen through today, so pumped for his new album. That Abbey Road performance of Iron Sky has seriously got me amped up for new Paolo.

    Also a huge fan, and will be forever. Loved 'Sunny Side Up' and not quite sure if her could top that album IMO.

    Love Him

    Well...... After watching him sing Iron Sky, my opinion could change. Incredible

    I'm agree.

    I have a lot of respect for him because he makes the music he wants to. After the first album he could have easily have came out with another These Streets but he surprised everyone with Sunny Side Up. I remember it being a sort of slow burner to begin with but ended up selling as well as These Streets.

    Since I got back into his music a few weeks back, I've done nothing but listen to Paolo - from watching his live performances at various festivals, to buying his albums again and blasting them through and through at work.

    Its amazing how different his two albums are - its also amazing how much of a changed man he seems to be these days. The dark days he experienced in the aftermath of his second album going multiplatinum and the festival days which alienated him from music are thankfully gone now, and he just seems to have totally regained the passion he once had [see Iron Sky, Abbey Road].

    If I had to choose between Sunny Side Up and These Streets a few years ago, I'd have sided with These Streets every time as I don't think Sunny Side Up was quite as instant as These Streets. But now, Sunny Side Up gets my vote - its a contemporary masterpiece, I can't quite explain how much I adore the album.

    So pumped for Caustic Love!

    I think moreso than any artist I have ever played, I can just play his albums from start-to-finish without skipping a single track - he hasn't ever put out a bad track...

    According to my iTunes, I am approaching 900 plays of his music over the last month. Better Man is currently my most played track with 71 spins. But I am confident that Iron Sky would be #1 by far if YouTube views were included!

    Wayne's most played Paolo Nutini tracks

    01. Better Man
    02. Pencil Full of Lead
    03. Candy
    04. No Other Way
    05. High hopes
    06. Tricks of the Trade
    07. 10/10
    08. Growing Up Beside You
    09. Million Faces
    10. Coming Up Easy
    11. Simple Things
    12. Rewind
    13. Chamber Music
    14. Keep Rolling
    15. Last Request
    16. These Streets
    17. Smokey Joe's Cafe
    18. Worried Man
    19. Loving You
    20. Funky Cigarette
    21. White Lies
    22. Autumn
    23. Jenny Don't Be Hasty
    24. New Shoes
    25. Alloway Grove*

    * Would probably be top 5 if it didn't have the hidden Last Request at the end, I always end up skipping half of the track [which stands at 12 minutes long with a big gap in between Alloway Grove and the hidden live performance of Last Request]. Alloway Grove is probably the most beautiful thing he's ever recorded, magical.

    So pumped for Caustic Love, I cannot wait! I only hope that Iron Sky's studio performance can live up to the live performance which remains one of the best things I've ever seen/heard.
