Tilling was born and brought up in Linköping, where she sang gospel and jazz music at school and in her church choir. She studied at the University of Gothenburg and then at the Royal College of Music, graduating in 1998. Her international opera career was launched the following year with her acclimed performances as Corinna (Il viaggio a Reims) for New York City Opera. She has since performed extensively on both sides of the Atlantic, and has collaborated with such conductors as Semyon Bychkov, Andrew Davis, Antonio Pappano and Simon Rattle. Her operatic repertory includes many Mozart roles, Sophie, Mélisande (Pelléas et Mélisande), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Donna Clara (Der Zwerg) and the Angel (Saint François d’Assise).

Tilling regularly performs in concert, engagements including Mahler’s Symphony no.2 at the Carnegie Hall and numerous performances of Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem. Her discography includes songs by Schubert and Strauss and a DVD of Ilia (Idomeneo) for La Scala, Milan.
