Her father is an engineer whilst her mother an architect. Both of them were not from the field of music and thus as a kid had not thought about a career as a singer. She had a brother named Tellef and a sister named Johanne who were both way better singers than her.
This in a way opened up her life in music. After listening to the songs of artists like Joni Mitchell, Adele and Neil Young, she too started to get involved with it.
