Brilliant artist and true live performer. Petra's voice is incredible!

September tracks are influenced by euro house, hi-NRG and downtempo, but it's really just dance-pop of the highest quality. Smooth production and clever songwriting, mostly by the likes of Jonas von der Burg and his team. Remixes vary from big hard trance mixes to jazzy candlelight edits which show off Petra's vocal capabilities even more.

Under her real name, Petra has released a bunch of Swedish pop/rock/electronica songs. "Händerna mot himlen" (penned by Kent's Joakim Berg) has become a true classic already, certified 6x Platinum at the time of writing. September song "Mikrofonkåt" in fact received an even higher certification (8x Platinum!); both songs are obviously still in regular rotation on Swedish radio.

Biggest international hits: "Satellites" (US #8, Poland/Spain #1), "Cry For You" (US #1, UK #5).
Biggest Swedish hits: "Mikrofonkåt" (#1, 8x Platinum), "Händerna mot himlen" (#2, 6x Platinum).
