Career and educationEdit
Lorentzen studied Project Management in Advertising at Den Danske Reklameskole (The Danish Advertising School) in 2004 and went on to study various project management-related courses at Roskilde University between 2005 and 2010. She managed her time as a student while working at Advance, a creative advertising agency based in Copenhagen, Denmark. Starting in 2000 as a receptionist, she rose through the company's ranks before leaving in 2010 with project manager experience.
After competing in the game show Scenen er din, Lorentzen replaced Andrea Elisabeth Rudolph as co-presenter in the third season of talent show Vild med dans with Claus Elming, however, both Lorentzen and Elming received negative criticism. She did not return for the show's fourth season and was replaced by her predecessor, Rudolph.
In late 2006, Lorentzen was offered the opportunity to provide vocals for the song "Creeping in My Soul" after auditioning for the part. Composed with Mikkel Maltha and Kasper Søderlund, the track was utilized in the promotional campaign for the Barraki wave of Lego Bionicle toys in 2007, and went on to become a popular MP3 download from the official Lego website. The song's success prompted Lego to produce further musical scores for later Bionicle campaigns, and by 2008, Lorentzen, Maltha and Søderlund released "Closer to the Truth", used to promote the Bionicle Mistika wave, under the band name Cryoshell.
Cryoshell spent the majority of 2009 recording their self-titled debut album. Released on June 7, 2010, it garnered critical success and sprawled the singles "Bye Bye Babylon" and "Creeping in My Soul" (a re-recording of the original). Lorentzen took maternity leave from the band between November 2011–October 2013 and was temporarily replaced by Tine Midtgaard. Upon her return, the group began developing their sophomore effort, Next to Machines, which spawned four singles prior to release.
