Biography

If you think you know Paolo Nutini, think again. His two million selling 2006 debut album, THESE STREETS, established the young Scotsman as a leading light amongst the new wave of singer-songwriters. Paolo’s extraordinary follow up, SUNNY SIDE UP, casts him in a whole other light.

Written by Paolo Nutini and produced by Paolo and Ethan Johns, SUNNY SIDE UP, is a richly ... Read more in Amazon's Paolo Nutini Store

Editorial Reviews

Atlantic recording artist Paolo Nutini returns with his eagerly awaited second album Sunny Side Up. Produced by Ethan Johns (Kings Of Leon, Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne), Sunny Side Up sees Nutini continuing to mine his arresting brand of soulful modern pop. Songs such as 'Ten Out Of Ten' and 'Coming Up Easy' display the gifted tunesmith's ever-growing knack for irrepressible melodies melded with insightful and intimate lyricism, all held together by Paolo's gritty and unpredictable vocal stylings.

I'll say it right up front: I think this is a great record. A great record that got a bum rap. It's not that the critics didn't (at least more or less) grasp what this is about, but few cared enough to focus on how fabulous the music on this CD is and instead pointed out how it was commercial suicide, how his reach was far beyond his grasp, and how inconsistent it is.

Yet what's most striking about this album is how unconditionally, unashamedly musical it is. It sounds like music made by someone who wants to share the sheer joy of his songs with the world. The reviewer at musicOHM gets it somewhat right when he says, "Sunny Side Up is bonkers in a good old-fashioned English sense and Nutini's devil may care attitude should be applauded by all right-minded lovers of artistic sidesteps."

So I'll do some applauding.

The comparisons are many: Otis Redding. John Martyn. Maybe a spot of Johnny Cash. Cat Stevens. Van Morrison. For me, the reference that comes to mind most often is Bryan Ferry. It's not just Nutini's warble, his overtly melodic, full-throated soul croon that reminds me of Ferry. It's his songs: songs that don't particularly care whether they're of their own time. I'm reminded of how, on The Bride Stripped Bare, Ferry made all manner of genres his own and somehow managed to produce a coherent classic that didn't relate at all to the prevalent records of the time. All slick suits and glam, most of Roxy Music's 1970s output is, of course, directly opposed to the trends of the day. Throughout all that opposition, though, it shines by virtue of its sheer musicality, its musical daring. Its warm embrace of both classic 60s soul and European cabaret comfortably meets somewhere in a very likable middle.

The first album was fabulous and the second with a more soulful and even reggae undertone sounds amazing!!! He is such a feel good singer. I am just waiting for US tour dates. They cannot come soon enough. Playing this album just like his last will follow me through the rest of the summer NO DOUBT!
Love me some tini :)

With his sophomore outing, the half Italian/Scot lad from Paisley Paolo Nutini proves that he didn't want the success of his 2006 debut album "These Streets" to force him towards blander, glossier production values.
Three years ago he seemed like just another bland singer-songwriter from UK, following the footprints of the James Morrisons and James Blunts, but he was't terribly thrilled about this.
With Ethan Johns as co-producer (whose past credits have included Ryan Adams and Kings of Leon) and more creative freedom, he roughs it up and instead fancies rebranding himself as a mongrel hybrid of Otis Redding and Bob Marley.
It's a doomed quest, inevitably, though you can't help but admire the undediable talent, sincere intent and the lop-sided ambition.
There's no polish or politesse here.
Instead, Paolo plays the raggedly soulful Paisley boy: mixing up bygone styles is very much his thing.
So "Sunny Side Up" parps into life with "10/10", which is kind of...Caledonian reggae.
The folk tinged "Chamber Music" sounds like a very ropy demo before yielding to a delightful whistle and accordion theme.
The flute and ukelele bounce of "High Hopes" is the quirky standout.
"Coming Up Easy" and "No Other Way" have a whiff of early Atlantic soul/Stax groove, "Tricks Of The Trade" could be a sliver of early Bob Dylan, "Simple Things" a stab at Johnny Cash country.
The ragtime roll of Pencil Full Of Lead" has the flavour of a mix of 50's skiffle, traditional jazz and blues.
"Candy" has the ghost of some half-forgotten AOR classic in its bones. Some people mihgt hear on it a young Scottish Bruce Springsteen.

The same thing that some of the reviewers don't like about this album is what I love about it: it's not like his first one. This go-round he's stretching his wings and trying different genres. Ska, pop, jazz, blues, country/western -- it's eclectic and fascinating. Approach the songs with no preconceived notions and I don't think you'll be disappointed.

This is how good think this album is: As I listened to it, I realized with a start that I'm probably too old to watch the career of this young talent unfold in full. I've never thought anything like that, for any artist, ever. I appreciate his musical experimentation, and I hope he keeps it up. If he wants to sing oom-pah tunes in the future -- not my favorite -- I'll still give him a listen, because he has a way of making the old feel new again.

I was going to write a fairly lengthy review to go along with my 5 stars but, honestly, I couldn't possibly improve on Carsten Knoch's review.

For what it's worth, I'm new to Paolo Nutini, thanks to a Week-End Edition segment on NPR on Aug. 8th. Don't you get the greatest feeling when you discover an artist that makes your heart smile? Both of his CD's do that and more though, I must confess, I prefer Sunny Side Up just for the sheer variety and exuberance.
