Norine is an award winning artist (Western Canadian Music Award Nominee, Banff Centre Musician in Residence, Canada Council For the Arts Awards, First People Cultural Council Award, Los Angeles Music Awards, Artists For Literacy) ” Norine Braun released her 12th full- length album December Falls for Christmas 2020. The Vancouver Sun Stuart Derdeyn named December Falls as 1 of 5 new seasonal releases worth putting under your tree. J. Ireson says it best that ” blues-rock singer-songwriter Norine Braun has cooked up a Christmas album during her time in quarantine that offers up several swingin' new holiday-tinged tracks and peppers in her rowdy take on some old chestnuts.
The veteran songstress' new tracks frame the season in a new way, shirking the traditional style much in the way rock n roll originally came in and rebranded the idea of Christmas by the likes of Brenda Lee and Elvis Presley. December Falls encapsulates the whole period of transition that comes with the new year, not just the day itself.
God knows we're all ready for a transition!"
