Through Train Windows

Norine Braun

"delicious alt-rock with bluesy country hues. Braun’s voice dazzles with its smooth, pristine textures." - tattoo (dot) com

"It's a mesmerizing album and a trip that everyone should take." Jamie Parmenter Vinylchapters 
 “ Sleeping Buffalo sets a solemn melodic mood to open what quickly becomes rocking. The driving boogie of Jerkwater Town snarls while Climbing Table Mountain just pulses with a jazzy undertone. Braun has really great phrasing, smoothly rolling over her varied material.” Stuart Derdeyn The Vancouver Sun.

“

Through Train Windows is a distinctly Canadian musical mosaic that will send the listener on a journey they will want to take again and again.” Mariko Margetson UK's largest Folk Publication Folk Radio and Vandela Magazine

 

"Braun injects a breezy, bluesy cool into the realm of folk narration.” Jonathan Frahm - For Folks Sake

“Her voice has the viscosity of a jazz crooner, the elegance of a gospel singer, and the heart of a blues artist.” Bryan Rogers 

“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.” - Robert Ottone JustPressPlay Review

An imaginative display of fine musicianship, potent vocals and heartfelt lyrics, talent like hers doesn't exactly come around too often." - Kevin Sellers Music Emission

Climb aboard, sit back and close your eyes, let the rhythm of this roots rock train soothe and inspire your dry bones.

Through Train Windows was inspired by Norine Braun’s cross Canada Riding the Rails tour as Artist On Board with partner Alice Fraser last year. Travelling over 6000 kilometres from Vancouver to Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City, Montreal and Halifax, Norine absorbed the ever changing vast and beautiful panoramas from the Rocky Mountains to endless prairies, boreal forests and Atlantic ocean. With no wifi and time to reflect on nature and the paradoxes of life, Norine met and communed with the diversity of fellow sojourners from all over Canada and around the world. Following the tour, as a Musician in Residence at Banff Centre for the Arts and Creativity, Norine wrote most of these compelling songs in her studio facing Sleeping Buffalo Mountain. So climb aboard, sit back and close your eyes let the rhythm of the train soothe and inspire while conjuring up feelings of nostalgia and dreams amid inner and outer landscapes.
