After some minor musical experience, in 2008 she released her first album (with label Auand[3]), Bacio Ancora le Ferite and began playing concerts.[1] She won several prizes, including the award for "Best Lyrics" at SIAE and "New Indie Pop Artist" at M.E.I. (Meeting delle Etichette Indipendenti).[1]

Her version of Don't Stop, originally by Fleetwood Mac, was the soundtrack to Eni commercials starting from January 2011.[4]

In March 2011 she released her first major album, È, on Sugar.[5] The album produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson (Björk, Sigur Rós) and arranged by Valgeir Sigurðsson and MaJiKer was anticipated by the first single "Giungla",[4] with a video directed by Valentina Be and inspired by the true story of young model Tom Nicon’s suicide.[4]

In October 2011 she toured in the United States for the Hit Week Festival, performing in New York City, Los Angeles and Miami.[6]

In 2012 she entered the Sanremo Music Festival with the song "Nella vasca da bagno del tempo".
