In 2001, Mignon began playing keyboard and performing in the theater play "Bloody Daughters" in Berlin's "Bar jeder Vernunft", starring Corinna Harfouch and Catherine Stoyan.

Following this she toured with Peaches in 2001 and 2002 as a performer and vocalist. Discovering a similar taste in music and a desire to shock audiences, they co-wrote and performed tracks together such as "Casanova" and "She’s a Rebel". Jointly they have played in England at the Leeds and Reading Festival as well as Australia and New Zealand for the Big Day Out accompanied by Cobra Killer. They also supported Queens Of The Stoneage and And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead on 16 tour dates in North America through the fall of 2002.

Mignon’s solo career began in 2003 when she performed with an array of artists at festivals such as Larry Tee’s Electroclash-festival in New York and Arthur Bakers Return to NewYork-festival in London . During this time she also supported Ellen Allien and Chicks on Speed in Switzerland as well as played other music festivals in Germany and France. She supported 'Trail of Dead' in Germany on their 2004 tour and undertook her own tour of California in 2005. Mignon has performed her solo shows at venues all across Europe.
