Paolo Nutini
Short Bio
Paolo Giovanni Nutini (born on 9 January 1987) is a Scottish singer, songwriter and musician from Paisley. Nutini's debut album, These Streets (2006), peaked at number three on the UK Albums Chart. Its follow-up, Sunny Side Up (2009), debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart. Both albums have been certified quintuple platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. After 5 years, Nutini released his third studio album, Caustic Love, in April 2014. The album received extremely positive reviews from music critics. Caustic Love debuted at number one on the UK Album Charts and was certified platinum by the BPI in June 2014.

Nutini was born in Paisley, Scotland. His father, Alfredo, is of Italian descent, from Barga, Tuscany, and his mother, Linda (Harkins), is Scottish. Nutini was expecting to follow his father into the family fish and chip shop business. In late July 2014, he was referred to by the BBC as "arguably Scotland's biggest musician right now".

Paolo Nutini’s Iron Sky directed by Daniel Wolfe

It’s not jolly, but it’s pretty darn good. Daniel Wolfe’s short film for Paolo Nutini’s Iron Sky starts with what looks like grainy documentary footage accompanied by a low ringing sound. Don’t worry, you probably haven’t just developed tinnitus; I think he’s making a point about the unnerving, grating, inescapable difficulties faced by modern society. If this sounds poncey, listen to the lyrics – “in this harsh reality, mass confusion” – and watch the montage; a man beating an octopus against a concrete floor, an Orthodox priest breathing deeply, a young girl smoking, a man swinging incense, a power station, a man writhing in pain covering his ears. And drugs, lots of people taking drugs.

But there’s hope of a kind. “A cold society, from which we arise … over fear, and into freedom.”
