    Posted: Mon 13 Mar 2006 | Views: 3989 | Comments: 0

    Wednesday 15th March – we get in to Austin, Texas in the early hours and we get the bulk of the first day to get used to the new time zone! Then late that night we play at the ATX Magazine SXSW after Hours Event/Party. We don’t know too much about this gig other than … it will be our first official US date! F**kin cool!

    Thursday 16th March - The next day, at 1.30pm we’ve got a lunch appointment ….. we’ve been invited to play at the BBC Radio 2 BBQ at Brush Square. We’re doing four acoustic songs and also on the bill that afternoon will be Billy Bragg and Aberfeldy.

    Later that night we have two shows – one at 8pm and then later at 10pm. We’re playing inside at Stubb's Restaurant (the address is 801 Red River) Other bands playing that night are Dresden Dolls and Gomez

    Friday 17th March - Paolo Nutini is from Paisley and proud of it! So it’s no surprise that we’re doing the Official Scottish Showcase which is hosted by Scottish Arts Council & DF Concerts. The venue is Caribbean Nights on 6Th STREET and it’s an afternoon event between 1&5pm.

    At midnight on the Friday we’re back at Stubb's Restaurant (at 801 Red River). We’ve got a short twenty minute set … the really cool thing about this – we play after The Magic Numbers and just before Snow Patrol.

    Saturday 18th March – we kinda get the day off and late Saturday night/Sunday morning we play The ASCAP Showcase at The Whisky Bar (303 W 5th St Austin)

    Sunday 19th March – we get a day off!!!! And get ready for New York City!

    Monday 20th March - we fly into New York at about 11am on the Monday. Get settled and then Paolo and the boys will be getting ready for The Mercury Lounge (217 E. Houston St. Corner Ave of the Americas & Houston). Paolo is supporting Annie at this gig.

    Tuesday 21st March - it looks like we’ll be meeting up with all the guys at the office of the record company and there may even be an Atlantic Records NYC showcase for Paolo. We’ll keep you posted! Then later that night we’re back at The Mercury Lounge (217 E. Houston St. Corner of the Avenue of the Americas & Houston). We’re supporting the Zutons at this already sold out gig!

    Wednesday 22nd March – we fly home but don’t back till early on Thursday 23rd March

    Friday 24th March – 7.30pm Paolo Nutini is supporting KUBB at the Shepherds Bush Empire.

  • Limited Edition CD ….

    Posted: Wed 22 Feb 2006 | Views: 4007 | Comments: 0

    Paolo Nutini’s tour starts on 1st March at the Barfly in Liverpool. At the gig a very limited edition two track CD will be available to buy. It will set you back two quid and will have two live tracks on it.

    Track One is a live version of ‘A Million Faces’. This song is already on Paolo’s myspace page but will be available to buy on the tour. It was recorded at the Bedford in Balham late last year.
    Track Two is a called ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’ and was recorded by Paolo, Jim and Donnie while they were rehearsing in the big room at Parr Street Studios. This was recorded last week and produced by Jim on his Apple Mac!
    This is a strictly limited edition CD – only 500 are being pressed so if you get the opportunity to get one – make sure you do!

    Paolo’s management are busy planning the trip to Austin, Texas for SXSW with a three day stop over in New York after it. That means sorting flights, hotels, working visa’s for the band and also getting Paolo a handful of gigs to play whilst there.

    Once these gigs have been confirmed they will be posted here. Paolo is represented by Atlantic Records worldwide and in addition to the record company - there are some great people in America working on other bits to the US trip – we’re gonna meet and play to all kinds of people - press, radio, agents and even other bands!

    Paolo returns from SXSW/New York on Thursday 23rd March. The following night (Friday 24th March) Paolo will be supporting KUBB at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire. This is a sell out gig already - so unless you have a ticket, you won’t get in! Sorry?

    After this gig, Paolo will be looking to be doing more gigs/support slots. All of this is in the pipeline so keep coming back to the site for more details.

  • The Paolo Nutini album

    Posted: Wed 01 Feb 2006 | Views: 5322 | Comments: 0

    At the moment Paolo is in Parr Street studios in Liverpool and will be there till the end of February. The studios are up the road from the nightclub Cream - or where Cream used to be! Not far from Concert Square in the City Centre. Anyway, Paolo's working with a great producer - an absolute legend of a man - called Ken Nelson. Ken has produced some fantastic and most importantly classic sounding albums, including the great ' Quiet Is The New Loud ' by 'The Kings Of Convenience'. He was also the producer of all three COLDPLAY albums - Parachutes, A Rush Of Blood To The Head and X&Y and its great Paolo's working with him. He's definitely in good hands!

    Paolo, Jim, Ken and the guys at Parr Street will be recording ten tracks for the album. And Paolo thinks the place is brilliant - weird almost? There's the two big studio's A and B and there are like ten 'hotel' type rooms upstairs so Paolo works and sleeps at the studio! The really strange .... err cool bit .... is ... there's a bar/club/restaurant in the studios too (which is open till late! Like 4am!) so when Paolo, Jim and the boys need a beer or a munch then they just walk through a few doors and they're at the bar! Two or three hours later, they stumble across to their bedrooms - and fall into bed! Pished and not needing a taxi - the only problem - there's no late night chip shop in the studio complex! Fuck! I suppose you cant have everything ... hey?

    We wont reveal the track listing just yet - but Paolo will be gigging these songs as soon as this recording process is finished in March - it would be great to see you at one of the gigs! The tour is listed on this site and all the ticket details are there too - just check out the LIVE (or GIGS) section .....

  • South X SouthWEST, Austin, TEXAS 2006

    Posted: Tue 31 Jan 2006 | Views: 3810 | Comments: 0

    So what is South X SouthWEST? "In its 19-year history, it has grown from being a jolly spring get-together for a few hundred US indie labels and musicians in search of a deal, to an international gathering that is the most important date in our music industry calendar."
    (The Guardian, March 25, 2005)

    And this year Paolo Nutini has been invited to play at SXSW when it runs between 15th and 19th March. In it's 20th year its a conference and showcase of about 1200 acts with 8000 delegates in attendance. Pop, jazz, country, blues, reggae, hip hop, electronica - every imaginable style of music, from nearly every continent - is represented each night at over 50 of Austin's premier stages, many within walking distance of one another. There's more amazing music performed and crucial business conducted in Austin over those few days than anyone who hasn't been to SXSW can imagine.

    Previous artists through the SXSW doors have included The Flaming Lips, Franz Ferdinand, David Gray, The Black Eyed Peas, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Ryan Adams to name just a handful!

    The highlights this year which include Paolo Nutini are Biffy Clyro (Glasgow), The Secret Machines (New York), KT Tunstall (St Andrews), Mogwai (Glasgow), The Magic Numbers (London) Cerys Matthews (Austin, TX) Hard Fi (Staines, UK), The Zutons (Liverpool) to name but a few! Radio 1 will be broadcasting live from Austin, Texas so listen to Radio 1 for news and live OB's.

    Keep your eyes on the Paolo Nutini site to find out how Paolo gets on ....
