Petra Marklund biography
Petra Eos Marklund was born in September 1987. She is half Swede, half Slovene. She comes from a tradition of folk musicians (her mum once took part to a Slowenian song contest) and in really into space exploration (her dad is professor in astronomy). Her sister designs clothes. Her singing career began in 1998 when Petra was discovered by Swedish producer and songwriter Hans Edler. She then recorded her first album Teen Queen, produced and written by Edler. The sound was dance with a touch of bubble-gum. She had just completed three years of musical training and education. The biggest mistake about her ? "People think I am stupid just because I have blond hair and and sing dance music" she explains.
Since 2003, she's been fronting the project September. And according to rumors, Petra has a superstition: before concerts, she doesn't want to see any calendar that shows any other month but September.
