Paolo Nutini, the new singer songwriting talent from Paisley in Scotland, provided an enjoyable and monstrously popular performance in Biormingham, having gained such notoriety from his first single “Last Request” and continued success from “Jenny don’t be hasty” that he had to be upgraded from the Barfly to the bigger venue Sanctuary (just round the corner from Barfly) and still sold out. His gravely, soulfilled voice provided a beautiful chorus of his own material from his album “These Streets” including the incredibly touching “Autumn” about his Grandad, whilst intjecting a few memorable covers as well, from “Day for a Daydream” and his take on “Crazy”. This being the second time I have seen him this Summer, I have to say a consistently good performer, and would recommend him to anyone who can get tickets.
