She was born surrounded by music as her father played in some Oslo bands. It was he, who helped her to establish a music career and inspired her to create her own original music. He also helped her to sign a deal with record label and thus the debut album was released. Another Phase came out in 2002 and quickly earned Mena first fans. Through the year, her popularity grew up out of Norway and for example, her album Apparently Unaffected (2005) was certified Gold in Germany.
