Ethereal echoes form a tapestry of sound entwine the halls where PETRA hits the stage. Yes, she’s known for her “hook-drenched, danceable, optimistic pop” and “electrifying persona,” however her canon of songs, much like a diary of her life, showcases a multitude of genres ranging from old rock to straight up pop and a deep understanding of the art of sound.
With guitar in tow, PETRA has been all over the world, headlining shows in New York (Webster Hall, Knitting Factory), Boston (Hard Rock Cafe @ the Cavern Club), Los Angeles (The Mint), Tokyo (Mona Records), and Osaka (Hard Rock at Universal City Walk, Kansai Music Festival) as well as a tour with Drake Bell for High School Nation.
PETRA has collaborated with D'Addario Strings, Evans Drumheads, Promark and Roland, who provided her with top of the line equipment while touring in Japan. A Guitar Center Artist of Summer 2017, she participated in a national advertising campaign, hosted a behind-the-scenes tour diary on Snapchat and an Instagram Takeover for the Inaugural Women That Rock show, bringing in nearly 48.8k viewers.
She’s releasing a new album this year, Dancing Without You, which captures the growth one gets from grieving a loss. The album is a dedication to her late father who she lost to stage iv lung cancer just two months after his diagnoses. The nine-track debut album is a culmination of her three past years without him and how she has learned to live out her dreams. PETRA is ready to showcase her next chapter of sound- so get ready.
What The Press Is Saying
“Fusing an upbeat instrumentation, PETRA’s latest single “Dancing Without You” is coated with all the nutrients for an indie-pop hit. Complimenting her vocal range, the fast paced melodies and catchy riffs give the song a whole new light. Written in the aftermath of her father’s passing, the writing process of this song gave PETRA the energy she needed to get back on her feet again.”
“Petra is a New York-based singer/songwriter who has always dreamt of being a musician, but never saw artists who looked like her creating the kind of music that she wanted to make. Now, she’s the newest face—and a refreshingly brown one at that—on the indie pop scene.”
“Bubbly pop melodies and lyrics radiating with sweet positive energy."
“Petra is a beautiful musician who managed to lure us quickly and without further ado...(coming) with energetic music who will immediately invite us to dance with her. "
“(PETRA) will have you nodding along to the beat in no time."
