Paola is a singer-songwriter, guitarist and semi-producer originally from Boston. She gained considerable acclaim, including from showrunners and authors, for her early works based on her favorite stories. Her original music, self-described as "sadgirl folk," carries the melancholy sweetness of Joni Mitchell and Sara Bareilles, with an edge of electric grit.

In December 2016, she put out her first studio release, The Shoebox EP, the result of an Indiegogo campaign which raised more than its target goal. She has previously released two self-produced EPs: Something to Win in 2014 and Miles Further in 2013.

She currently lives, records and performs live in New York City.
