Petrina embodies two trends – what I call "the eccentric pop" mixed with regional and traditional musical style. I put her name among those of Franz Ferdinand, Imogen Heap, Radiohead and Florence and the Machine, all artists who are stretching the song form and the accompanying music to their limits, but still maintaining that song thing that draws you in as a listener.

[David Byrne]

What a fresh sounding landscape full of gems. Petrina is so gifted and such musically aware artist. I love her singing. Her voice is beautifully suited to the music she makes and really draws the listener in.

[Terry Riley]

 

''Petrina is one of the most original artists that have emerged over the last decade. Multiple, and multiplying art''
