Paulina Vo is an indie/folktronica, pop/soul singer, songwriter, and producer based in Brooklyn. She’s currently composing music for indie film and TV, as well as writing and releasing both collaborations and personal projects. Born in New Orleans to Vietnamese American immigrant parents, and eventually living in more than five states, Paulina’s experiences have molded her sound into a cross-genre blend of harmonies, delayed guitars, and occasional 808’s. Her upcoming albums showcase this, and are set to be released in late 2018.

"Ghosts" from "Weekends" (2016) was nominated in the American Songwriting Awards (2017) and the Hollywood Songwriting Contest (2017) in the Best Pop Song category.

"Here" from the original indie series "Here We Wait" was been nominated in the Indie Series Awards (2018) for Best Original Song.
