Songs for Christmas Norine Braun and Alice Fraser

by Norine Braun



Last year I finally made my mother a special gift of Christmas carols. For the past few years she has asked Alice and I to record a collection of her favorite carols and this is the year we did! I was inspired to do this especially after finishing writing a new bluesy Xmas song on a Saturday only a couple days before this doing this recording. Alice and I recorded these songs in our livingroom, making this gift from the heart for Mom and with the help of our friend Juan Ramon Gamba who acted as sound engineer.

I posted my activity on facebook and several emailed to say they would like a copy too. I was hesitant at first as the project is very much a rough. live homerecording and meant for a Mother's forgiving ears. Songs for Christmas has alot of quirky fun moments and truly comes from the heart so I decided to offer it for free to you with its lumps, bumps and love only at and only for the next few weeks. The first 200 downloads are free and then its a pay what you want so get there early if you are strapped for cash. You can always stream it anytime too.

And yes the newly written tune, Put A Wreath On it Blues is in the collection. I took Songs For Christmas offline after Christmas last year and it will again only be available during December and then maybe never again so do be sure to download while you can. Enjoy the season and happy holidays however you celebrate!

Her signature funky folk-blues sound simply cannot be matched. Best listened to as loud as your neighbours will tolerate. Abortmag

Her music sounds like the union of Nick Cave with Patti Smith & City and Colour deep in the Canadian forests.

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

Track Name: Put A Wreath On It Blues
Christmas cards are written
Candle light a glow
Looking out my window
Watching silver snow

Hidden in the corner
Lies a photograph of you
Smiling eyes looking at me
The way you used to do.

I'll put a wreath on it
From the dark closet
Deck it all out to see
Cedar and holly
Fat man jolly
Twinkle yuletide tree

If you want me
You can find me
I'll be home Christmas eve
Empty stockings hang in firelight
Through the cracks cold winds breathe
