Are You In?

Norine Braun

"Every spring is the only spring, a perpetual astonishment." --Ellis Peters

Hello Beautiful! 
No matter how long the winter, spring is sure to follow. Vancouver is in full cherry blossom bloom and the city looks spectacular and inspiring! 
Equally inspiring is recording the new album Gone To The Spirits. We are almost wrapped up only my harmony vocals are left to record and some natural sound fx in between songs. Adam is doing an amazing job producing this new wonder!!
I really appreciate all the early supporters of my upcoming release. YOU ALL ROCK!!! Such a joy as I know you are going to love Gone To The Spirits and thank you very much for believing so, it means a great deal.
Miriam Sweeney an artist in Ireland is doing incredible work on the cd cover for me too! I came across her work and was struck by an image she did and had won an award for. I contacted the gallery that was showing her work to see if I could license it.  Miriam wrote me back personally to say a record company was already negotiating for an exclusve deal on the work I wanted. Of course as a little indie I could not compete with a big label but Miriam being so gracious along with great talent and generosity, agreed to make me something special for my new album and it is spectacular! Everything is coming along so beautifully just like the spring ...feeling ever so grateful.
You can still get in and help launch this new baby with a pre-order, many cool perks are offered including: signed CD, tee shirt and signed piano key! Own a piece of Norine Braun’s recording history. I will sign and send you an original piano key from our vintage upright piano, a 1903 Canadian made Krydner. The piano was used in the recording of the song 99% featured on the last album Conventus The Eye of the heart and played by Alice Fraser on the recording. PS Alice will gladly sign the piano key too - See more at: http://www.norinebraun.com 
I do use paypal for the pre-orders and know some folks don't like paypal or credit cards and so some are sending a cheque instead. If that's an easier or better option for you too, it's payable to Norine Braun.  Be sure to email me to let me know you sent it by mail and for which perk ie liner notes,  cd and teeshirt before March 31. Thanks!!

Love and Happy Spring To You,
