Biography

Paula Toller (born on August 23, 1962 in Rio de Janeiro) is a Brazilian singer and songwriter. Toller is mainly known as the lead singer of Kid Abelha, one of Brazil’s most popular music bands. In 1998, she released her self-titled first solo album, which was very well-received. Her second solo album, titled SóNós, has been recently released and went to number-one in the Brazilian albums chart.

Paula was raised by her paternal grandparents, Paulo and Renée. Paulo was a retired surgeon, an ex-adviser of the president of Brazil and of the government of the state of Guanabara, a historian and also an author of several books. Renée was a homemaker and the manager of a boarding house for senior women.

In her infancy and adolescence, the predominant music in her home was that of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin, among other classical performers. Along with Spanish music and opera. On the more modern side, she also listened to the music of Carmen Miranda, Elis Regina and The Beatles (the only rock her grandfather would accept). In school, Paula took ballet and English classes with the intention of becoming an English professor.

At the age of 17, she began taking courses in Industrial Design and Visial Comunication at the Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio de Janeiro (PUC) and started studying French. In conjunction with her course work, she did an internship in a visual programming office where she would put into practice the things she learned in school.
