Tola (born Tola Klara Szlagowska on 27 November 1992) is a Polish singer-songwriter. She rose to fame in 2005 as one of the lead singers of Polish girl duo Blog 27 which enjoyed success in Poland, Central Europe, and Japan. She has continued solo career since 2011.

Career[edit]

In 2005, she founded music duo Blog 27 with her friend Ala Boratyn.[1] The group released two studio albums, <LOL> (2005) and Before I'll Die... (2008), which spawned singles "Uh La La La", "Hey Boy (Get Your Ass Up)", "Wid Out Ya", and "Cute (I'm Not Cute)". In 2008, Szlagowska appeared in popular Polish TV series 39 i pół which also featured the band's songs. Despite international success, Blog 27 ceased activity the same year when Tola moved to Los Angeles to study at Alexander Hamilton High School and Los Angeles College of Music.[2]

Between 2011 and 2012, she released a series of solo singles mononymously as Tola. One of them, "Muse", was one of the contenders to represent Poland in the 2011 OGAE Video Contest.[3] Tola returned in 2018 with new image and single "Atmosphere", distributed by Warner Music Poland, which met with positive reception. Her first solo album, Subtitles, was released independently by her label Humans on Earth in February 2021, promoted by new single, "Recycled/Fragile".
