Norine Braun's music has always existed on its own terms, falling into that
titillating, refreshingly original space to the left of "trendy," craftily
sidestepping the all-too-easily-dismissed stigma often applied to the "female
singer/songwriter," and freewheeling unhindered around the rigid shackles of "genre.
Along with savvy producer and multi-instrumentalist James Bowers, Braun has
accumulated an extraordinary discography of unpretentious, personal songs
anchored by her sweet, confident voice and genteel composition. Together, the
pair crafts tuneful, friendly songs with subtle but effective arrangements,
dynamic and graceful and memorable.
Now, Braun is back with her fifth CD, NOW & ZEN, and on these fourteen tracks
Braun shows an even greater depth and maturity. NOW & ZEN expands on her
penchant for jazzed up, funk-tinged pop, and shows this gifted songstress taking
bold steps on her soulful journey into self-exploration. The torch song, "Move
the Clouds," is evocative and inspirational, anchored by easy lounge piano and a
melody as delicate as flower petals. The groovy "J'en Suis Desolee" showcases
Braun's confident rap, surprising and rocking with an edgy explosion of homegirl
Artsy and intellectual, tuneful and savvy, Norine Braun will zing to the heart
of any listener.
Norine Braun's repertoire ranges from ethereal, reflective moods to sizzling
bluesy rock that test the limit of popular music. She is inspired by the
struggle to find meaning in the human experience. Her lyrics, although
provocative, do not lose touch with her whimsical nature.
