Santi’s first pseudonym was Santogold. It was a nickname given to the teenager by her friends in the 1990s. At first, the young woman worked at Epic Records.

White helped her with the album, How I Do.

At the beginning of her music career, Santi worked with a punk group Stiffed. Together, in 2003, they released an EP, Sex Sells. In 2005, the band presented an LP, Burned Again. After the release, Lizard King Label offered a singer a solo contract. Soon she recorded her first solo singles, "L.E.S. Artistes" and "Creator". Both of them managed to become popular online.
