Early life

Nuo was born to an Albanian[2][3] father from the town of Gjakova[4] and to a Swiss[5] mother in Gettnau in Lucerne, Switzerland. He has a younger brother named Simon with whom he was raised in Luthern.[6] At the age of fourteen, Nuo abandoned all hope of becoming a popular tennis pro and decided to focus on a musical career instead. After a few misleading steps at home, he managed to move to Hamburg, Germany where he was engaged as a backing vocalist for several record productions. In the meantime he also worked as a model for charity projects.


In 2002, Patrick met producer and songwriter German Singles Chart the following year.[8] Also in 2004, a reissue of Welcome was released. It produced the single "Undone", which served as the theme song for American comedy film Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004) in German-speaking Europe.[7]

Nuo in 2006.

In May 2005, Nuo's second album Superglue was released. While not as commercially successful as Welcome in Germany, it would eventually become his highest-charting to date, reaching number four on the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

In 2007, after a label change to Ariola Records, Nuo's third album Nuo was released. It widely failed to match the success of his previous studio albums and produced three singles of which lead single "Watchin' Over You" became the only single to chart.[7] In September 2009, the single "Come On Now" was released on Flash Records.

In 2011, Nuo became a member of the jury in the German Idol series show Deutschland sucht den Superstar alongside producer Dieter Bohlen and singer Fernanda Brandao.[9] In 2013, he was one out of eleven celebrities who joined the seventh season of Ich bin ein Star – Holt mich hier raus! based on the British reality television show I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!. He finished fifth.
