Help me launch the upcoming new cd, Gone To The Spirits with an advance pre-order purchase!
I am filled with joy and excitement to be currently recording my 10th full-length album called Gone To The Spirits at the Rear Window Song and Sound studio with Juno nominated producer Adam Popowitz! Gone To The Spirits recording project is a result of writing the Ququnak Paǂkiy Song Collection, a Canada Council 2014 grant funded songwriting project that I was honoured to be awarded with last year. The collection is based on the engaging and dramatic life story of Ququnak Paǂkiy also known as Gone To The Spirits who was a Two Spirit, Ktunaxa warrior woman, prophet and guide, who lived in the early and mid-19th century. Gone To The Spirits was the gifted oracle, chief and accomplished warrior who appeared in the journals of trappers and explorers and was noted as having transitioned gender. I am bringing the story alive and sharing the amazing history of Gone To The Spirits.
The goal of this pre-order campaign is to raise funds to get Gone to The Spirits released and publicized. Funds raised go toward the manufacturing, shipping, promotion/publicity, marketing and music video production. As an independent artist these pre-orders really help get the music out into the world! . Order below via paypal or credit card or contact me at norine(at)norinebraun.com for alternative ways of purchasing i.e. cheque and snail mail or in person. All pre-orders are in Canadian funds and include shipping/postage. Preorder Goal: $5,000 Raised So Far: $40 Updated Daily.
