Journey Toward Wholeness Coming Soon!
Norine Braun Embarks on a Soulful Journey Toward Wholeness with Her Upcoming Album
Canadian Singer-Songwriter Recording Artist Norine Braun Unveils Transformative Musical Odyssey with Upcoming Album 'Journey Toward Wholeness,' Exploring Identity, Heritage, and the Universal Quest for Self-Discovery
Canadian singer-songwriter Norine Braun, celebrated for her prolific career spanning 14 albums, is set to release her highly anticipated new album, "Journey Toward Wholeness," in May 2024. The creation of this poignant album was made possible through the support of a grant from the First Peoples' Cultural Council.
The album delves deep into Norine Braun's personal journey as an adoptee, exploring the challenges of forming an authentic sense of self when growing up away from a bloodline. "Journey Toward Wholeness" is a testament to Braun's resilience and her symbolic and literal quest for roots that played a crucial role in her pursuit of completeness.
Braun's story takes a compelling turn as she shares her decade-long struggle to uncover her paternal roots. Last year, in the midst of grieving the passing of her loving mother—who had adopted her—Braun received a life-altering email from a second cousin who unveiled the identity of her birth father. The revelation not only connected her with a living parent but also opened the door to a newfound family filled with musicians, trappers, World War II veterans, and even historical figures such as her great, great, great grandfather, Pierre Poitras, a member of Louis Riel’s council of 40. Braun discovered that she belongs to the Red River Metis heritage, a revelation that is explored and celebrated in her upcoming album.
The musical narrative of "Journey Toward Wholeness" is a reflection of Braun's quest for completeness and her desire to share the discovery of her paternal bloodline, the Red River Metis. The album promises a rich and evocative experience, combining Braun's soulful vocals with a melodic exploration of identity, heritage, and the universal journey of self-discovery.
With the album release scheduled for May 2024, Norine Braun invites audiences to join her on this transformative musical odyssey. The album promises to resonate with those who, like Braun, have faced the challenges of unknown ancestry, offering insight and inspiration to individuals on their own journeys of self-discovery.
