The article focuses on Scottish singer/songwriter Paolo Nutini. He appeared at the New York Pops Birthday Gala at Carnegie Hall in May 2006 at the personal request of the evening's honoree, Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun. He performed alongside Kid Rock and Liza Minnelli at the New York event. Early British press coverage predicts James Blunt-style success for Nutini, whose music recalls such classic troubadours as James Taylor and early Van Morrison. His debut album entitled These Streets will be released in Great Britain on July 17, 2006, preceded by first single Last Request.
