Paolo Nutini Sets First Major U.S. Tour; Scottish Sensation Heralds Debut Album With Performances on The "Today" Show and "Late

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 12/21/06 -- Atlantic recording artist Paolo Nutini has announced details of his first full-scale tour of North America. The headlining itinerary heralds the U.S. release of the Scotland-born singer/songwriter's acclaimed debut album, "THESE STREETS." The album -- which includes "New Shoes," a Top 10 single at Triple A radio -- lands in stores on January 30th. Nutini is also slated to make a number of major TV appearances in support of "THESE STREETS," starting on January 30th with a visit to NBC's "Late Night with Conan O'Brien." The following morning, January 31st, Paolo will perform on NBC's "Today" Show. The appearances follow Paolo's two recent performances on his fellow Scotsman Craig Ferguson's nightly CBS talker, "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."

The 20-year-old Nutini will kick off his Stateside tour in Chicago on January 25th, with dates continuing through March (see attached itinerary). Among the trek's highlights are much-anticipated shows at New York City's Bowery Ballroom on January 31st and Los Angeles' legendary Troubadour on March 23rd.

Born and raised in Paisley, Scotland, Nutini has quickly become a true star in the UK, where "THESE STREETS" made a spectacular top 3 chart entry this summer, receiving gold certification less than 2 weeks later amidst a flurry of critical acclaim. Uncut Magazine awarded "THESE STREETS" four-out-of-five stars, noting that "For once, comparisons with the great Al Green are not entirely far-fetched." The Observer hailed Nutini as having "a talent for elegant, melodic songwriting." "THESE STREETS" has now been certified double platinum in the UK, and has gone on to sell over 700,000 copies. In addition, "THESE STREETS" has been certified gold in France and has shipped over one million copies across Europe.

Produced by Ken Nelson (Coldplay, Ray LaMontagne, Badly Drawn Boy), the album is driven by impassioned blue-eyed soul stunners, including the stirring title track and the rousing single, "New Shoes." The track -- which was recently iTunes' "Single of the Week" -- is currently climbing the top 10 at Triple A outlets nationwide. Hailed by Billboard as one of their "Five To Watch," and named one of Rolling Stone's "10 Artists To Watch 2006," Nutini released his North American debut EP, "THE LIVE SESSIONS," earlier this year. The four-track collection drew instant rave reviews, spurring the New York Daily News' Jim Farber to declare Paolo to be "the most thrilling new singer of the season."

Like so many of the most important artists who have emerged from the UK, Nutini has absorbed the soul of the great American R&B singers and channeled it into something original, captivating, and dynamic. Inspired by classic rock and soul stars like the Drifters and Ray Charles, as well as such troubadours as John Martyn and Van Morrison, Nutini left his native Scotland at 17 and moved to London, where he started performing regularly at clubs around town. His bold voice and provocative songs created an instant buzz. Nutini signed to Atlantic Records shortly after his 18th birthday and headed north to Liverpool to work on his debut album with renowned producer Nelson.

Nutini immediately captured widespread attention via tour dates supporting the likes of the Rolling Stones and Paul Weller, in addition to making sensational TV appearances on "Top of the Pops" and "Later with Jools Holland." In May 2006, he appeared at the New York Pops Birthday Gala at Carnegie Hall at the personal request of the evening's honoree -- Atlantic Records Founding Chairman Ahmet Ertegun. Two months later, Nutini brought the house down during a special tribute to Ertegun and Atlantic Records at the Montreux Jazz Festival. The only new artist on the bill, Nutini shared the stage with such icons as Solomon Burke, Robert Plant, and Kid Rock. One of Paolo's heroes, soul legend Ben E. King, was so impressed that he invited him on stage to sing with him, an amazing moment for the young singer.

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
