Raised in South Carolina, she was discovered by a French film director in a New Orleans bar before subsequently moving to Paris.
Under the wing of Canadian music producer Chilly Gonzales, who collaborates with Jarvis Cocker among other notable musicians, she released her first album in 2019, Blood Siren.
