Born in Rosario, Argentina, Paula Shocron initially received a classical education and soon developed an interest in popular music. In 1996, she started exploring jazz and two years later she began to study Composition at the School of Music of the National University of Rosario, with teachers like Diana Rud and Jorge Horst, with whom she took private lessons. She also studied with Carmelo Saitta, Dante Grela, Niels Rosing Schow (Denmark) and Arditti Quartet (England).
In 2000, she took up lessons with Ernesto Jodos and started to focus on jazz, traveling from Rosario to play in Buenos Aires on a regular basis. In late 2001, she was awarded the “Buenos Aires - l World Tour” scholarship of the Berklee College in Boston. The economic crisis that Argentina suffered at the time prevented her from traveling to the US but the award served as an important incentive to continue playing jazz.
In Rosario she played in two bands: Fuga de cerebros, a “progressive” jazz trio, with Franco Fontanarrosa (electric bass) and Alexis Perepelycia (drums), and La Revancha, with Julio Kobryn (tenor and soprano saxophone), Mariano Sayago (electric bass) and Sebastián Mamet (drums), with whom she recorded the album “La intensidad del juego”.
In Buenos Aires she partook in several projects with musicians like Lulo Isod (drums), and Ada Rave (tenor saxophone) and Daniela Horovitz (vocals), with whom she formed a widely acclaimed trio in 2003. In 2004, se formed the Shocron-Gutfraind Quartet with guitarist Marcelo Gutfraind, co-leader of the project, Julián Montauti (double bass) and Carto Brandán (drums). In 2006 they released their first album “Percepciones” (BlueArt Records), highly praised by both public and critics. Paula Shocron Trio, with Jerónimo Carmona (double bass) and Carto Brandan (drums) recorded Urbes (Blue Art Records) and Homenaje (Sony Music), dedicated to jazz musician Andrew Hill. Now, she leads her own straight ahead tr�-o with Jeronimo Carmona (bass) and Eloy Michelini (drums), and has recorded Our Delight (Rivorecords) Her Gran Ensamble, (an small orchestra of 13 musicians) recorded Gran Ensamble in 2010 and it came out last year.
