Following this release, she received two Swedish Rock Bear awards; one for Best Swedish Newcomer, and the other for Best Swedish Female Artist of the Year.

She followed up her musical success forcefully with the album Fallingwater, released in 2003, quickly climbing to the very number one spots of Swedish pop charts, even reaching platinum sales. The album’s success came greatly from two of its songs Lady Stardust and Sing To Me which both became hits.

Some of her music was directed by Joakim Berg, also known as a songwriter for the Swedish rock band Kent, and Simon Nordberg.

However, she does not actually appear in the band’s special edition DVD included in Come Clarity. Instead she appears as “Her body double, ‘the Mexican’”, who is just a man in the studio with In Flames who sings her parts.

She has recently worked with EA/DICE on the title track Still Alive for the video game Mirrors Edge.

Besides the music, Miskovsky enjoys snowboarding, to the point of participating in the Swedish national snowboard team, and she’s also known to be fond of ice hockey as well as surfing.
