(Singer-songwriter, b. 1987)

Gurning, gravel-voiced Scottish singer-songwriter Nutini shunned his family’s fish and chips franchise to enter the music business. Debut single ‘Last Request’ caught the ears of the nation, reaching No. 5 in 2006 ahead of first album These Streets. The No. 3 LP included the UK hits ‘Jenny Don’t Be Hasty’ and ‘New Shoes’. Sophomore effort Sunny Side Up was released in 2009, going straight to No. 1 and turning three times platinum. Supported Led Zeppelin at their 2007 reunion; the new Rod Stewart?
