ABOUT TOVE LO
Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson (born 29 October 1987), better known by stage name Tove Lo(/ˌtoʊvˈloʊ/ tohv loh, Swedish pronunciation: [²tuːvɛ ˈluː]), is a Swedish singer and songwriter. She was born and raised in the affluent Djursholm district of Danderyd Municipality, just north of Stockholm, where she graduated from musical magnet school Rytmus Musikergymnasiet. Lo formed the Swedish rock band Tremblebee in 2006. Following the disbanding of Tremblebee, Lo pursued a career in songwriting and earned a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music in 2011. Working with producers Alexander Kronlund, Max Martin, and Xenomania, Lo became a successful songwriter while she was recording and independently releasing her own compositions. In 2014, she was signed to Martin’s songwriting collective Wolf Cousins and was offered a recording deal. She signed to Island and Polydor.
Lo rose to fame with the release of her debut album Queen of the Clouds, which opened at number 14 on the U.S. Billboard 200 in October 2014. The album spawned the sleeper hit single, “Habits (Stay High)”, which peaked at number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. In addition to her solo work, Lo has cowritten a number of songs for other singers, including Hilary Duff’s “Sparks” and Ellie Goulding’s “Love Me like You Do”, which garnered her first Grammy Award nomination for the 58th Grammy Awards. She has collaborated with Coldplay, Flume, Alesso, Nick Jonas, Adam Lambert, Years & Years, Seven Lions, Broods, Lucas Nord, Urban Cone, and Wiz Khalifa.
Lo grew up idolising Courtney Love, inspired by grunge culture and the polarising lyrics of Love’s music and her band, Hole. Lo also became fascinated with Love’s romantic relationship with Kurt Cobain, as well as the rawness and honesty of his music with band Nirvana. While in high school, Lo developed a passion for pop music and songwriting, influenced mainly by the output of Swedish singers Robyn and Lykke Li. She cites the simplicity and quirky lyrical content of French singer Charlotte Gainsbourg’s IRM (2009) as the main inspiration behind her career in music and said that it “opened a new world” for her sound-wise. Her other musical influences include Amy Winehouse, Jeff Buckley, Mikky Ekko and Silverchair.
