“Imagine if Marianne Faithful and Nikola Tesla had a love child, with Jane Birkin as the nanny and Bjork as the wayward Girl Scout leader!”

She regularly collaborates and performs with artists such as Cluster, Trentemøller, Elliot Sharp, Chicks on Speed, Faust, Marilyn Manson, Lee Hazlewood and Adult.
