Welcome to The Daily Paolo!

Come on in, pull up a chair, and join us as we talk about Paolo Nutini and The Vipers – Donny Little, Mick McDaid, Dave Nelson, Gavin Fitzjohn, Ben Edwards, Tom Pinder, John Tilley, and Janet Ramus.  We try to be respectful of Paolo, his band, and each other here, and ask that everyone does the same.

And now a little history…

Seven years ago, we started The Daily Paolo over on livejournal.  A few years ago, Mary Anna and I decided we needed to start our own website – and you’re looking at it now, the most comprehensive Paolo Nutini fan site on the internet.  The site will continue to grow and change – this is definitely still a work in progress.  We hope you enjoy it!

About us…

Mary Anna and I met online back in the spring of 2009.  Up until then, I’d never met anyone as nuts about Paolo as I was, so it was a good thing!  We eventually planned to meet in person at a Paolo show (go figure) in Florida that summer, and became each other’s Paolo partner in crime.   It’s been a great ride since, and we’ve had a blast bringing you Paolo news over the last seven years.  Here’s to many more!

    I just wanted to relax before going to bed. But no. It’s 6am right now and I spent all night listening Paolo over and over again. I saw him last week on concert in Zagreb and I was amazed! He has that old soul and incredible, incredible voice. I’m gonna tell everyone I know about him! But, just after I make myself coffee and get some sleep! 🙂

  3. Hi

    I’m doing a q+a with Gavin Fitzjohn, Paolo’s brass player for our website and would like to use a pic of him from your site to include in the article. I will credit Daily Paolo if need be.

    Great webiste by the way – very comprehensive

    All the best

    1. Hi Dafydd,

      If you can let us know which picture you’d like to use ahead of time, we can put you in touch with the original photographer that we obtained permission from if it’s not one that Mary Anna or myself have taken. Feel free to contact us at thedailypaolo @ gmail.com (no spaces, obviously).

      Thank you for your kind words about our website. Paolo’s band is top notch, and Gavin is such a versatile and talented musician. We were surprised to learn how many different instruments he can play and that he arranges a lot of Paolo’s music as well.

    Hi, apparently I am even less “tech savvy” than I care to admit. Therefore, I have not been able to log on to your site….my fault. Anyway, I am an older, avid fan of Paolo Nutini and my son-in-law is taking me to the Troubadour show where I will finally be able to see Paolo do a live performance. I will also be attending the SD House of Blues concert at the end of Sept. with some friends. Hats off to you ladies for all that you do to bring up-to-date info on Paolo and the Vipers. I was wondering if you all knew how many band members will be attending the LA Troubadour show and/or the San Diego House of Blues concert? Any information would be appreciated. Are you ladies attending either of these shows? I have enjoyed your 2 sites very much and want to day say thanks!
    Kindest regards,

    1. Have you figured out how to login yet? I see that you have a screen name so you are registered…

      No, it doesn’t look like Mary Anna or I will be attending any California shows. Things are busy for us both right now and so we’ll mostly be attending the east coast shows. I’m so glad you’ll get to see Paolo! Be prepared to be well and truly blown away!

      When Paolo was in NYC he didn’t have his full horn section, so I’m not sure about a total count. So that would be seven (Donny, Dave, Janet, Jay, Gavin, Tilley, and Mick) plus Paolo, of course. If you’re planning something you might want to plan on nine band members just to be safe.

      Hope you have a wonderful time!

    Have you heard anything about Paolo and The Vipers appearing at the Austin City Limits Festival in October 2014. If so, do you know what weekend he will be there?

    I am still puzzled as to why Warner Brothers / Atlantic records (USA) have not promoted Caustic Love. I have pre-ordered from Warner Brothers Ireland, so I’m happy. Question…noticed on the show fliers posted there is a curfew…haven’t seen that here. Does that mean ‘do not hang out after the show’? Or do you all have to be safely tucked in at home by then? lol. Keep up the good work!

    1. Suzy, there’s a long and a short answer for why Caustic Love hasn’t been promoted (yet) in the U.S. The short answer is the release date for the U.S. isn’t set for April as it is elsewhere. We don’t have a date as yet – we’re working on narrowing that down. As far as the long answer, well, we’re working on that, as well.

      As for the curfew, I need to double-check on that, but I believe it means the band needs to be ready to leave the venue by that time.

    Ciao Paolo, sei incredibile, mi piace molto il tuo stile ! Ammetto che non ti seguo da sempre ma, meglio tardi che mai si dice… Non vedo l’ora di avere anche il tuo ultimo album, sappi che hai acquisito una nuova appassionata fan ! Spero di conoscerti un giorno in un prossimo concerto magari… Ti abbraccio

    Hi Celeste,
    I have tried to find out about Paolo’s concetr’s this summer 2013 and I’m still confused…:( Please help me find out where will Paolo be touring this summer!!!! I live in Gibraltar so I’m looking for a concert in Europe. Thank you in anticipation!
    Best regards,

    1. Elena,

      Paolo’s people haven’t announced any tour dates yet for 2013. Don’t give up hope though! We’re sure to hear something soon! Also, we will most definitely post information here as soon as we hear anything!

      p.s. When the information is posted on Paolo’s website, it’ll be here.

    Is there an address we can write to Paolo? Or don’t ppl do that any more? When I was a teen I used to write to my fav artists and they would send back a signed pic..Elvis, Big O, Rolling Stones, Beatles all used to do it then… Geez I wish Paolo would come to Perth, West Australia.. a growing following here … just love him to bits x♥

    1. Hi Angie!

      No, to my knowledge, Paolo’s people don’t do that. (I know some people still do, as my daughter has a thing for Tom Hiddleston and he does it.)

      We’ll just have to keep our fingers crossed that Paolo will make it to Perth someday!
