Tove Lo’s interest in writing began at an early age, writing poems and short stories. Her stage name comes from a childhood nickname her godmother called her, as Lo is a Swedish word for the Lynx, an animal which Tove really loves. Developing a love for music, she then started to write lyrics and songs for a girl band with her friends. Eventually she enrolled in the Stockholm music school Rytmus Musikergymnasiet. During her time there, she became friends with Caroline Hjelt, who would later form Icona Pop.

During 2006, Tove formed a math rock band called Tremblebee composed of members that all come from Rytmus. They played in various bars and locations, releasing some of their songs before eventually disbanding. After Tremblebee, Tove focused on writing more songs, in pop, grunge as well as EDM genres. She started creating a demo while working as a session singer to fill her monetary needs. She also lived with Icona Pop in Stockholm, and learning the intricacies of music production. During a party to celebrate Icona Pop’s record deal, Tove presented her demo to a producer which helped her get into a song-writing group. She secured a contract with Warner/Chappell Music, and started to work with artists like Girls Aloud and Icona Pop. While all of this was transpiring, she also worked on her own music, releasing Love Ballad in 2012 and then Habits in 2013., which became a very popular hit and gained Tove a large online following. By then, she had started to be featured while working with Seven Lions and Victoria Justice. Her net worth was rising steadily.

With such a large following, Lo was offered a recording deal by 2014, and began touring London and around the USA. Her career had turned from song-writing into singing as she released her debut EP called Truth Serum, which was widely successful, and many acclaimed Tove to be one of the next big pop stars. The re-release of the song Habits became a mainstream success, and catapulted Tove’s career as well as her net worth. Her songs continued to rank high in Sweden and even the Billboard Hot 100 charts. She released her first album soon after, called “Queen of the Clouds”. She also worked with Katy Perry, Cher Lloyd, The Saturdays, and even recorded a song for “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I”.

At the 2015 Swedish Grammis Music Awards, Tove won Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for Habits. She was also nominated for a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media. This was for her work co-writing the Ellie Goulding song “Love Me Like You Do”.

Aside from her music career, not much is known about Tove’s personal life which she keeps private. She maintains a media image that is, according to her, synonymous with her true personal identity. She mentioned influences from bands like Hole, and Nirvana. She’s also mentioned Amy Winehouse, Silverchair, Jeff Buckley and Mikky Ekko as her musical influences.
