Eden Sessions 2010: Paolo Nutini
Paolo Nutini
Paolo launched his career with 2006 quadruple-platinum debut These Streets

Paolo Nutini will play two nights in a row at this summer's Eden Sessions 2010.

The soulful singer-songwriter will perform on the Eden stage on Tuesday 13 July and a second performance on Wednesday 14 July.

Tickets for the original Tuesday concert sold out quickly. Now its been announced Nutini along with Martha Wainwright will return to the biomes the following night.

Paolo and Martha will be the first artists ever to play two Sessions in the same year.

Paolo launched his career with 2006 quadruple-platinum debut These Streets, including the top-ten single Last Request.

He followed it up with last year's second long-player Sunny Side Up. That album went straight to number one.

Hailing from Paisley in Scotland, Paolo has been singing and working in the music industry since leaving school at 16, including stints as a roadie and studio engineer.

As a result, he has shown an understanding of live performance that belies his age and Atlantic Records recognised his potential early on and signed him just after his 18th birthday in 2005.

Paolo was nominated in two categories in this year's BRITs - British Male Solo Artist and British Album for Sunny Side Up - and has rubbed shoulders will rock royalty, supporting Led Zeppelin at their O2 comeback show and sharing a stage with the Rolling Stones at the Isle of Wight Festival in 2007.

Tjarko Wieringa, Eden Sessions Creative Director, said: "We're proud to announce Paolo's appearance at this year's Eden Sessions - another fantastic coup! His laid-back brand of motown-tinged folk rock will be a perfect match for Eden's beautiful surroundings.
