This will be the fourth Eden Sessions performance for the Sunny Side Up singer-songwriter, who has racked up more than 1.5 billion streams and 18 platinum certifications.
The Paisley-born musician, recently named a Modern Scottish Classic at the 2023 Scottish Album of the Year Awards, found fame in 2006 with the release of his first album, These Streets. The record entered the UK album charts at number three and delivered hits such as debut single Last Request and Jenny Don’t Be Hasty, going on to achieve a five-platinum status.
His second album, Sunny Side Up, packs a punch of upbeat soul and ragtime influence. The album debuted at number one in the UK when released in 2009, the unmistakable Pencil Full of Lead contributing to the album finishing the year within the top ten performing albums in the UK and seeing it reach the top slot for a second time in January 2010.
His career has seen him headline Glastonbury’s Other Stage, Benicàssim in Spain and, not least, the London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony alongside Duran Duran, Snow Patrol and Stereophonics. Perhaps one of the most touching accolades, however, came soon after releasing his first album in the form of the Golden St Christopher Medal, bestowed on Nutini by the Tuscan town of Barga in Italy, his father’s ancestral home.
Paolo’s latter two albums - Caustic Love (2014) and the latest, Last Night In The Bittersweet (2022) - are punctuated by hiatuses of self-reflection and discovery. Taking stock clearly paid dividends, with the brooding Caustic Love opening up a whole new sound for singer. The album debuted at number one and achieved Apple’s Best iTunes album of the year.
