It’s a busy week for music as we’ve got another great selection for you guys to give a listen to. Hailing from Vancouver, we bring you Canadian songstress Norine Braun. This singer-songwriter is hiding a powerful voice that will blow you away.
Following a bout with colon cancer, she’s back to prove she’s stronger than ever with her new album “Conventus The Eye of the Heart.” She’s been collecting awards left and right for her talent and has been recognized by the L.A. Music Awards, The Best Female Musicians Magazine and many, many, more.
Combining strong, meaningful lyrics with a voice that’s full of power and soul, Norine is sure to garner even more attention with her latest release.
The first song we gave a listen to was “99%“. This song pays tribute to the Occupy Movement and comes complete with a great animated video that you can view here:
The thing I’m digging most about Norine’s voice is how soulful it is and how full of character. So many voices I listen to sound so very bland with no distinguishing characteristics. Not many of them are able to stand out. The same cannot be said here.
Norine’s voice will again, blow you away with it’s soulful sound. It possesses the perfect amount of rasp and tender moments to really be effective.
The next song we gave a listen to was “Lightning Strikes Twice“. I really enjoyed the jazzy and bluesy sound of this one. The song is able to be catchy while still providing the listener with haunting lyrics. You’ll feel like you’re down South listening to the blues with this song.
Next up we listened to the title track “Conventus“. The song starts off slow with bluesy, precise guitar. Norine’s voice starts off soft, almost a whisper. Eventually, the song picks up and becomes uptempo. Overall, I like the sound of this one but the whispered vocals make me wish I was hearing her more clearly. Her voice is so good!
“Conventus The Eye of the Heart” will be available November 8th, 2013.
