Who is Paolo Nutini and what is he best known for?
Hailing from Paisley in Scotland, Paolo Nutini is a singer and songwriter who rose to fame in the UK with the release of his debut album These Streets.
Born in 1987, Paolo Nutini’s career started when an artist was late to perform in his school, in which Paolo was asked by the music teacher to go up perform.
Due to the positive reaction from the crowd towards Paolo’s naturally stunning voice, it caught the attention of his soon-to-be manager, who happened to be in attendance.
A few years later, Paolo signed with Atlantic and began work on his first album ‘These Streets’, which was released in 2006.
Including his recent album release ‘Last Night in the Bittersweet’ - which his 2022 tour is in support of - the Scotsman has gone on to record over 4.5 million album sales.
