Review excerpt from Music and Media Focus

"My Own Little World" is the debut solo album from guitarist Petra Eichstaedt of Munich, Germany. Since all of the songs are instrumental, nothing is lost in the translation and her six strings speak a universal language. Petra describes the album as “a musical trip into my dreams,” and the journey starts with the title track, or at least Part 1 of it. Nature sounds accent gentle finger-style guitar colored with reverb and effects to create an almost harp-like quality. A subtle synthesizer string pad in the background fills in the pastoral picture. I liked the way on this song and a number of others that she used effects like chorus and echo on her guitar to add atmosphere and dimension. A different facet of Petra’s musical spectrum is reflected in a tune called “Gypsy,” which features fast rhythmic strumming in a style alluded to by the song’s title, laying down a driving groove for an ethnic-sounding synth to solo over. A real highlight for me on the album is an emotionally evocative composition entitled “Theme From A Secret Place,” with its simple yet heartfelt melody and soundtrack-like quality as played on acoustic guitar and keyboard.

The songs have a slice-of-life quality to them and present little vignettes and glimpses of various realities. "My Own Little World" has an earthy unpretentious quality that doesn’t seek to dazzle with extravagant production but tells its stories with simplicity and heart. The debut album by Petra Eichstaedt shows potential for this evolving artist. As the saying goes, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with at single step,” and Petra’s first venture as a solo recording artist shows that she is on firm footing and following a promising creative path. I’ll look forward to her continuing adventures.

My Own Little World, Eichstaedt
