Welcome

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.

Emotional, heartfelt and eclectic: Norine Braun in 3 words.

 

“Her voice has the viscosity of a jazz crooner, the elegance of a gospel singer, and the heart of a blues artist.” Bryan Rogers

“Straight out of Vancouver comes Norine Braun, a bluesy artist with a siren’s voice. To say I could listen to Braun sing all day would be an understatement. There’s a kind of raw power to her soulful voice. She even nails melodic bits throughout the album that recall artists like KD Lang and Stevie Nicks, perhaps with a strong dash of Melissa Etheridge. I really took to this album straight away. Great stuff. “ – Robert Ottone JustPressPlay Review

 

"Best listened to as loud as your neighbours will tolerate, Conventus is an incredibly strong offering from front to back. Strong and passionate, you are able to feel the artists soul, and that of the musicians playing with her. It’s like Norine is able channel both KD Lang and Joni Mitchell concurrently, which in itself should say something. The power and soulfulness she offers up just has to be experienced."  Scott Alexander ABORT MAGAZINE

 

 “Conventus the Eye of the Heart” fuses elements of jazz, funk, pop, rock and reggae into a bewitching blues album. Norine Braun’s vocal styling combines those of artists like Bonnie Raitt, Ani DiFranco and Koko Taylor into one remarkable voice." Laurie Fanelli VeggieFans

 

"Her music sounds like the union of Nick Cave with Patti Smith & City and Colour deep in the Canadian forests."  - Joshua Smotherman MTM


"An imaginative display of fine musicianship, potent vocals and heartfelt lyrics, talent like hers doesn't exactly come around too often." - Kevin Sellers Music Emission  

"On this well-recorded album she’s got variety, solid tunes and a band that’s so good they breathe together. Why are you still reading this? Go download Conventus The Eye of the Heart." - Jamie Anderson Indie-Music.com
