I will be heading to Norway next month to continue creating the new album!! and you can be a part of it by supporting my indigogo campaign and getting great prizes like.. me singing down the phone to you.. a house concert.. a new jingle for you biz.. and lots of other fun stuff!! You can check it out here: http://igg.me/at/prita (photo by Glenn Stephenson) I was recently in Cuba (as most of you know 🙂 and was lucky enough to meet some really amazing musicians and troubadours who I got to share the stage with and collaborate with some songs in the Studio too!! So 3 songs were recorded in this great little studio where you could hear roosters crowing in the background and we had to turn off the air-conditioning to record, then back on to not die of heat exhaustion. It was real, it was sweaty and it was amazing to work with such talented people when we barely spoke the same language. (my friend Iraida Williams in Las Tunas, Cuba) The next part of the album started after I was venturing up in the lands of Norway at a troubadour festival in Rjukan where I met a bunch of fabulous friends and brilliant musicians. After a weekend saturated with fantastic singer songwriter music, all of us jumping on stage with each other to add harmonies, and guitar leads, and a lot of spontaneous jamming. We headed back to Oslo where we ended up recording late at night after anther project was finished up. It was a simple question 'do you want to record one of your songs?' and I was like 'of course, absolutely, hand me the microphone'.. and that was the beginning of a great night of spontaneous recording with these excellent guitarists, singers, bass players, drummers.. it was just one of those really brilliant moments when it all comes together perfectly and we created a bit of magic! Everyone agreed after that track that we needed to do the whole album there.. and so the project was decided and dates set.. and now I'm launching the indigogo project to support the funding with YOUR help! (photo by Terje Prestarhus, Rjukan Troubadour Festival, Norway) Great things that you can get include -the brand new CD posted to you!!! downloads, tote bags, special house concerts, and even a WILD CARD where you can choose what you like!!! raaaaa!!!!

Dear Friends! In a very short while I will be off again on tour around the UK, Belgium and Germany! It's pretty exciting - I haven't been to the UK for a little while so it will be great to sing there again and catch up with old friends! I'll be playing a houseconcert in Overmere, Belgium and then returning to tour around Germany! you can see all the tour dates here www.prita.com.au on the tour's page This was my view at 4.30am in the morning after I got back home.. ahhh sweet ol' jetlag... I've also got a couple of shows in my 'home-town' Berlin 🙂 and I'll be touring my NEW LIVE ALBUM!! 'Live in Düssseldorf'!! if you want a copy you can email me for a personally signed and posted one :):) or you can get it online here as a DOWNLOAD http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/prita5 or a REAL CD 🙂 If you would like to HOST a HOUSECONCERT of your own - just write me a little email and we can figure out the details and make it happen! It's always such a treat to play houseconcerts as you have a much more intimate performance for both the artist and the audience and being in someone's home always gives it that extra cosy vibe 🙂 Australia was amazing... I had a well-needed rest in the sunshine and soaked up the sounds and smells of my home in the hills amongst the gum-trees literally.. and magpies, kookaburras, quendas... all very friendly... I even got to feed the magpies from the spoon I was eating my fruit and yoghurt from one morning!! they were pretty eager to taste what I was eating and I just love hanging out with the birds so much!! I also spent a wonderful time catching up with friends and spending quality time with my family which really tops up the well! The Shows at Clancy's Freo with Carus Thompson and the Ellington Jazz Club with Holli Scott were both amazing! such a great vibe and so many of my wonderful friends were there!! thanks!!! Always great to play at home to such a welcoming crowd 🙂 thanks for being a part of the journey! x Prita ps. join me on facebook here www.facebook.com/pritamusic
