Paolo Nutini takes up carpentry in bid to help him cope with pressures of fame

10 Feb 2014 09:46
THE 27-year-old Paisley singer revealed he turned to the pastime after struggling to cope with being away from his loved ones while touring.

PAOLO Nutini has revealed he has taken up carpentry to help him cope with the ­pressure of his success.
The 27-year-old turned to the pastime after struggling to cope with touring.
He said: “I find it therapeutic, although there will be a lot of friends out there who will hear that and go, ‘What a load of rubbish’.’’
He added: “We toured the last record for a year and a bit and I got to the point where I was only seeing my family and friends at gigs.
“I was miles away from home, my relationship was hanging by a thread and I realised I was losing ­everything.”
Last March, Paolo split with his school ­sweetheart of 10 years Teri Brogan.
More than four years on from the release of his second record Sunny Side Up, the Paisley singer is releasing third album Caustic Love in April, with single Scream (Funk My Life Up) out on March 30.
In the meantime, Paolo has been turning to wood for relaxation.
He said: “Whittling and carving wood is something I have always wanted to do yet I have only dipped my toe in the water.”
He was inspired to get into carpentry by a man called Eddie who he viewed as a grandfather figure.
He made Paolo a little rocking horse from wood, called Rocky, which the pop star still treasures.

Paolo Nutini - Paolo Nutini Turned To Carpentry During Musical Hiatus
Scottish rocker Paolo Nutini is a keen carpenter after developing an interest in woodwork during his four-year break from recording music.
Nutini released his most recent album Sunny Side Up in 2009 but retired from the music industry after becoming fearful his personal life would fall apart if he continued to spend so much time on the road.
The New Shoes hitmaker has now revealed he turned to woodwork as a way of relaxing while on his break after seeing a close family friend carving planks as a child.
Nutini explains, "The man I grew up to think of as my grandfather on my mother's side... worked with wood, and made me this little rocking horse when I was young, called Rocky. I still have it. Whittling and carving wood is something I've always wanted to do, yet I've still only dipped my toe in the water. I find it therapeutic - though there are friends at home who will hear that and go, 'What a load of rubbish'.


Third article from The Sunday Times Culture
Back with a vengeance

It’s ages since Paolo Nutini’s last album. What’s he been doing? Getting out of his comfort zone, finding his real voice — and writing the best songs of his career

Just out of bed — it’s noon — on a chilly January day, hair askew and with flip-flops on his otherwise bare feet, Paolo Nutini doesn’t look like a man preparing to launch a new album and go into battle once again. No doubt to his record label’s consternation, the 27-year-old has still not got round to finalising the track listing for Caustic Love, his third album and the first since the multiplatinum Sunny Side Up, which was released a whopping 4½ years ago. You’ve taken your time, I say. “That’s an understatement,” the Scottish-Italian singer chuckles. “But it’s not like I’ve been making the album for three...

7deadlysins7777 10th-Feb-2014 07:12 pm (UTC)
Awww... Someone I knew back in 2007 got me a personalized autograph on a promo poster , when she met him. He drew his little face thing on it too....

Now in 2012 I along with 20 other people were waiting to catch James Morrison after his gig in la.... Someone from his team said his throat hurt and he got some important call from home. He just zipped in right past us and left eh lol

his music is the issue
7deadlysins7777 Re: Omg I forgot or never knew he went through...10th-Feb-2014 09:36 pm (UTC)
Yeah... Welli didn't care for most of his second record. The new song sounds more promising. I liked his debut cause he sang , but I understand the label wanted less accent and more commercial songs and he hated that. Idk
it_llbeyourname 10th-Feb-2014 07:59 pm (UTC)
he's still so young!

i'm glad he's hot again and that we're finally getting a new album. i've never been more faithful to a man who's given me nothing for the last 4 years.
