Paolo Nutini is an 18 year old singer/songwriter from Paisley

And you should hear the boy sing! From Paisley, Paolo has an Italian Dad and a Glaswegian Mum - he has the Italian looks and lives for music, singing, songwriting and performing. He listens to Bowie, Damien Rice, Oasis, the Beatles, U2, Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac.

Paolo has played King Tuts - on his own, with a band and supporting some of Scotland's finest. He roadied and sold t-shirts for Speedway and worked as a studio hand in Glasgow's world famous Park Lane Studio.

The boy has served a musical apprenticeship for the last three years - learning all about the business. He's getting noticed too - BBC Radio Scotland had him live 'in session' after Daily Record journo, John Dingwall, saw him at the QMU. Dingwall was blown away by his voice, songs and performance and tipped Paolo as Scotland's hottest talent and got him on the radio.

Paolo has done live acoustic sessions on BBC Radio London. He's been in twice in the last 9 months.

Paolo played London's Hard Rock Café at the end of October 2004 at the Gibson Guitars Acoustic Night - also on the bill was KT Tunstall and Iain Archer (co-writer of many of the songs on the current Snow Patrol album). He has supported Amy Winehouse (Edinburgh) and has a few live dates at the end of May and into June 2005 - check out the live section for dates and ticket information.
