Biography

Paisley, Glasgow, United Kingdom (2003 – present)

Paolo Giovanni Nutini (b. 1987) is a Scottish . 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.

    When the AMC Essex Green Cinema opened its doors last November, it was touted as a $5 million renovation project that would revamp the theater into a cinema dining experience – the state's first. AMC Entertainment Holdings, the movie cinema chain, filed with the SEC for an IPO up to $400 million. New upgrades are coming soon to make this cinema one of the most upscale movie theaters in Irving. This theater in the heart of Times Square is right across the street from a rival Regal cinema. BEIJING — A Chinese conglomerate has announced it will buy U.S. cinema chain AMC Entertainment Holdings for $2.6 billion to create the world's biggest movie theater operator. Six weeks after Bow Tie Cinema closed the movie theater in the heart of Morristown, AMC theaters is getting ready to rip tickets again.

    Paolo is outstanding. Incredibly soulful and beautiful voice with a wide range of emotions and intonations, the contemporary Otis Redding. Caustic Love is a modern classic. [4]
