It’s a rare quality, and one that Braun capitalizes on to keep things compelling, a genuine musical chameleon. Braun has accumulated an extraordinary discography of unpretentious, personal songs anchored by her sweet, confident voice and genteel composition. She crafts tuneful, friendly songs with subtle but effective arrangements, dynamic and graceful and memorable. Now, Braun is back with her sixth CD, Evolution of the Blood Star, and on these thirteen tracks Braun shows an even greater depth and maturity. Evolution of the Blood Star expands on her penchant for ambient soul pop, and shows this gifted songstress taking bold steps on her soulful journey into self-exploration. The jazz torch song, "Skylight," is evocative and inspirational, anchored by gentle classical piano and a melody as delicate as flower petals.
The title track Evolution of the Blood Star truly inspires and intrigues with its contagious hook and neo B-52s landscape. Artsy and fun, thoughtful and savvy, Norine Braun will zing to the heart of any listener.
