PAST REVIEWS “A bluesy artist with a siren’s voice. To say I could listen to Braun sing all day would be an understatement . There’s a kind of raw power to her soulful voice. She even nails melodic bits throughout the album that recall artists like KD Lang and Stevie Nicks, perhaps with a strong dash of Melissa Etheridge.“ – Robert Ottone Just Press Play Review
“Best listened to as loud as your neighbours will tolerate. Strong and passionate, you are able to feel the artists soul, and that of the musicians playing with her. It’s like Norine is able channel both KD Lang and Joni Mitchell concurrently, which in itself should say something. The power and soulfulness she offers up just has to be experienced.” Abort Magazine
