So, I don’t know about you guys but Paolo Nutini’s song ‘Candy’ has been on repeat on my iTunes player for a while now. It’s an amazing song, so I thought I’d share it with those of you that may have not heard it yet…. Yes, I’m a giver =]
Paolo Nutini is a Scottish singer and songwriter hailing from Paisley.
His debut album ‘These Streets’ released in 2006 has sold millions of copies and his songs have featured in episodes of CLASS shows such as Scrubs, CSI and Grey’s Anatomy. Paolo has also supported some of the industry’s most talented artists such as Amy Winehouse and even The Rolling Stones and these types of achievements have led him to be recognised as an artist definitely to watch out for, all over the globe.
His musical sound is quite earthy, natural and one that is incredibly difficult to pinpoint, there’s extreme variety ranging from soul, jazz, blues, and even folk ambiences.
As he explains, ”Musically where I’m at, I don’t really have a genre or style that I feel a part of.” ”It’s a bit of random mish mash.”
The concept for his song ‘Candy’ was developed after an argument that occurred with his girlfriend, later he realised that he was the one who was at fault. (If only he had asked me, I could’ve told him, women are ALWAYS right, even when we’re wrong, we’re right! It’s been scientifically proven.)
The song ‘Candy’ was co-written by Ethan Johns who has worked with the likes of Ryan Adams and The Kings of Leon. It is also the first release from his highly awaited NEW album entitled ‘Sunny Side Up’ which is out JUNE 1st!
Born on the 9th of January 1987 and therefore still young… Paolo’s new album promises growth and a more developed sound, so make sure you go out and support our home grown talent by purchasing it!
Here’s the song ‘Candy.’ Hope you all LOVE it as much as I do =]
