A Scotsman with Italian roots and an intergalactic soul voice. Nutini’s great-grandfather fled Tuscany during WWI and opened a fish & chips shop near Glasgow. The Castelvecchi institution was ready to be taken over by Paolo, but his grandfather Giovanni was such a big fan of the Scottish folk band The Corries that he encouraged his grandson to foster his musical talent. Paolo moved to London, where he gained renown playing in pubs. His breakout album ‘These Streets’ (2006) sold no fewer than 1.5 million copies in the United Kingdom. Then followed ‘Iron Sky’ (2014), a six-minute epic that transformed Nutini into the most-played Scottish artist this century. After an eight-year hiatus, he’s returned in force with ‘Last Night in the Bittersweet’ (2022).
