Norine Braun is a Vancouver based singer-songwriter who has been called "jazzed up, funk tinged pop." That should tell you how her music defies conventional categorization. Built on a solid foundation of soul, Norine experiments with forms from ambient pop to jazz and folk. Braun herself is an interesting mixture of equal parts Blondie, Bjork and Margo Timmins. Smooth one minute and funking out the next. It’s a rare quality, and one that Braun capitalizes on to keep things compelling, a genuine musical chameleon.
Braun has accumulated an extraordinary discography of unpretentious, personal songs anchored by her sweet, confident voice and genteel composition. She crafts soulful, friendly songs with subtle but effective arrangements, dynamic and graceful and memorable. Artsy and intellectual, tuneful and savvy, Norine Braun will zing to the heart of any listener.
