Canadian pop/rock singer and songwriter Norine Braun was born in Ottawa and is now a Vancouver based singer-songwriter who has been called "jazzed up, funk tinged pop." That should tell you how her music defies conventional categorization. Built on a solid foundation of soul, Norine experiments with forms from ambient pop to jazz and rock. Braun herself is an interesting mixture of equal parts Sade, Blondie, Bjork and Norah Jones. Smooth one minute and rocking out the next. It’s a rare quality, and one that Braun capitalizes on to keep things compelling, a genuine musical chameleon.
