Press Reviews (Extract)

“The loop is just one aspect of a technically rich performance, underwritten by a flexible yet always impressive voice, which succeeds in giving layers of musical depth to this one-woman show.”
Australian Times (UK)

“We sent our review team to Swindon to check out Prita, an Australian newcomer on her UK autumn tour. They came back singing her praises (as well as some of her catchy songs). Oh and what a voice! She had our two chaps a little besotted by her and her music.” British Urban Review (UK)

“With an excellent sense of rhythm, and a exceptional voice she astounds the audience”.
Lemgo Brake News (DE)

“Prita also uses her voice, her greatest asset, together with a loop pedal and at times a stomp box to create a sort of one-man-band, or should I say woman, in order to create her own flavour of folk. It is this innovation that sets Prita apart from the other folk musicians.” Soulshine live Review

“Prita is without doubt one of the finest female singer/songwriters anywhere out there. Every single track on her album is a gem and she’s just as good live… She’s going to be huge.”
Rob Harrison, Riviera Radio (Monaco)

“Once you experience Prita’s exceptional live loop show, you’ll be hooked by her soulful rhythmic songs and captivated by her stunning vocal performance. It’s easy to see why ‘European audiences are sitting up and taking notice of this captivating musician from Fremantle’.” Australian Times (UK)
