Originally hailing from the North of Sweden, Promise & The Monster grew up listening to her fathers country band rehearsing in the same house, and her mother playing jazz records in living room. She began playing the guitar and writing songs on her own when she was thirteen years old, and when relocating to Stockholm in her late teens she quickly got signed by imperial Recordings, and made two folk goth albums. For a couple of years she played with doomgaze band Stiu nu Stiu, and made several collaborations with bands in the Stockholm psych folk and dark rock scene, and also with artists and novel writers.
