Ecstatic and grateful would be an understatement to describe my feelings about receiving a prestigious Canada Council for the Arts grant to compose my next album. For the first time in my life I will have an opportunity to completely and totally focus soley on my songwriting to create what I hope will be my best work yet.
This is no small undertaking I have been thinking about this project for almost 20 years now and believe I am finally ready to begin the work of composing this vision. I am truly honoured and humbled that the Canada Council agrees and believes in my past work and my new ideas and so the journey begins. I wanted you to be the first to know of this tremendous news!

"Many can learn from Braun’s story. Her vocals are pierced with the passion of a new union, the freedom of glaring death in its ugly black eye, to new beginnings and to disabling grief. In a time when many are afraid to speak of the white elephant in the room, Norine Braun’s gritty lyrics and loving vocals convey hope and inspiration while helping the listener discover the light even if they had not realized they had sought it." Word Krapht - Raven Elenah
