Paulini has been heralded as one of the finest vocalists and performers to come out of Australia. This Fijian born songstress was barely in her 20’s as we watched her shine through the lens of the first series of Australian Idol and thrust into the spotlight as the competition reached fever like pitch. Making it through to the final four, she won the hearts of a nation with her angelic, five octave range, and engaging personality.
As an artist Paulini rose to prominence on the top of the Australian ARIA Charts in 2004 with her debut Platinum album “One Determined Heart” and her Platinum smash single “Angel Eyes”, both hitting the No. 1 spot (Angel Eyes remained at the top of the charts for 6 consecutive weeks). In fact, Paulini is one of only ten Australian female solo artists to have a #1 album.
In 2006, Australia’s sweetheart released her second critically acclaimed album “Superwoman” including the hit singles “Rough Day” and her self-penned “So Over You”, spawning her two UVMA nominations for Best Female Artist and R&B Album of the year. Paulini then joined forces with the Young Divas, releasing an album that spawned three consecutive top 5 hits and two national sold out tours. With double platinum solo albums and singles under her belt, and the incredible success of both Young Divas and the touring ensemble Ladies Of Jazz, Paulini is firmly established as one of Australia’s favourite singers.
Paulini is now moving her career forward in a fresh and positive manner, continuing to record new material and cementing her status as a songwriter. Since inking a publishing deal and signing with Alberts’ Music (home of AC/DC and Vanda and Young) 18 months ago, Paulini has built up an impressive song catalogue as a songwriter with five international cuts already released in Spain, South Africa, Germany and The Netherlands.
After releasing the duet ‘Believe Again’ with Ronan Keating in 2010 in Europe and Australia, Paulini’s international scope widened again recently as she charmed audiences at both the Guangzhou and Shanghai Volkswagen Table Tennis Cup 2011 Championships, prompting another single release ‘Show Me Your Colors’ in the Asian market last month. Paulini is presently putting the final touches on her 3rd solo album release with her brand new single set for release this summer.
Over the years Paulini has grown as a performer, a songwriter and a woman, steering her own destiny in her music career and making choices that she truly feels great about. “I’m at the happiest point in my life. I’m spending my spare time in the studio writing and creating my own work”.
