Hammer Records: Is this the first time you've entered into the CBC Spotlight Contest?
Norine: No this is the third or fourth time I am persistent
Hammer Records: Which of the prizes are you most excited about?
Norine: Wow the 10 Day residency in Banff would be the dream!
Hammer Records: How would you describe your music to a brand new listener?
Norine: The song entered is a blues gospel styling however my main style of
writing is varied from bluesy roots rock to ambience and jazz.
Hammer Records: What made you pick the piece of music/video to enter?
Norine: This is the title track of my latest release and the blues feel is
accessible to almost everyone. Simple and easy to sing along with and
anyone can join in and usually does!
Hammer Records: If you could send a message to the judges, what would it be?
Norine: "You consider yourself a music lover and you believe in the pleasure of
beauty, you understand the complexity of life with it's both soothing
and exciting sounds. While you are drawn to all kinds of creative
expression you appreciate the timeless and the classic. You love music
that creates images and stirs deep feelings and takes you away on a
journey. This is the music that I lovingly make: one note, one idea and
one heart beat at a time." - Norine Braun
