The Burning is the first single and was written during the ongoing pandemic and while a heat dome and heat wave ravaged British Columbia. The Burning was recorded during the searing and out of control wildfires that devastated our province. Using Dante's Inferno and his descension through hell as inspiration for the lyrics I ponder the times we are living in. Grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts and First People's Cultural Council for helping me create this body of work. Inspired by the need to save the ancient trees and to live sustainably, the lungs of the planet need our deep attention. I take you on journey through the forest filled with joy, wonder and movement in this album Songs For Trees. Produced by Adam Popowitz and these amazing musicians shared their incredible talent on the album: Adam Popowitz Lead guitar and bass, Elliot Polsky drums and percussion, Alice Fraser Keys, Huggybear Leonard blues harp, harmonica, ocarina and penny whistle.

This song  was inspired by a large maple tree that sits in front of our living room facing  south in a 3 story apartment. Through out the years we  watched a pair of crows raise their family on her branches, raccoons spending a  night, squirrels, hummingbirds, robins  and flickers resting or playing on the branches. The beautiful tree fills up our balcony  in the summer giving us shade and privacy and beauty year round. Red Maple intends to capture their beauty and joy.  In these challenging times it's good to be reminded of the simple sweetness of maple trees and just be.

Hot on the heels of The Burning, SEX IN THE FOREST is the second single from the upcoming Songs For Trees album.

This chill house vibe tune was inspired by the reproductive cycle of the Coast Douglas Fir tree which are monoecious or hermaphroditic meaning it contains both the female and male cones necessary for reproduction to take place, all within the same plant. They are self sufficient in the continuity of their species how cool is that.
Sex in the Forest was written by Norine Braun and produced by Adam Popowitz who also played lead guitar, bass and programmed the drums, Alice Fraser on keyboards/synth with Norine’s vocals and rhythm guitar Dreamy, indie electronic sound, sensuous vocals, 80s pop/rock influence, and uplifting mood for Norine Braun’s ‘Sex in the Forest’. -LAST DAY DEAF

Sex In The Forest is very euphonious because it has a pleasing, sweet and agreeable sound that is pleasant to the ear. Your voice is very calming and compliments the lyrics and the instrumental well. Great Job! I have featured the song on the first page of our Music Podcast Blog. LHMPR Radio

Loving the island vibes and guitar in this one! Your voice fits perfectly over the beat - hard to do nowadays! “ Deviate Music Blog

"Nicely produced great atmospheric sound great ambient vibes that work well with the vocals great drums also on this track and the mix was great its a track that fits in well with the alternative indie electronica scene but also has crossover appeal” Futuristic Recordings

"Sex In The Forest" offers a fresh, accessible and smooth sound, the vocal is very stylish and soulful, it works well with the soft dreamy melodies, very easy on the ear, it is a good production overall” EKM

I can hear the very glittery and upbeat bouncy electric beats and I can hear the very silky vocal and it is the best part of this electrifying song. Music Lover

Definitely enjoyed the tranquil landscape you painted on this track! Very enjoyable overall. Adding you to one of our playlists. Scorpix

The song also pays homage to the work of Dr. Suzanne Simard in discovering that trees interact with each other underground and form a kinship.
