Hi there
The release was wonderful. We had so much fun onstage at our first ever live gig together. I can't wait to play again with the amazing No. 8 musicians! Rather than a livestream I posted several live songs in videos from the night and included a great interview with rightouttv. No worries if you missed, you can still get a taste of the show with the vids shot by talented Will Stelfox. Also posted are gorgeous No. 8 cd release photos by Skyy Powers. Enjoy.

Excellent feedback and No. 8 reviews coming in:
"Over the course of her eight albums local songwriter Braun has developed exceptionally sharp lyricism, fluid vocals and a way with a driving melody. Case in point, the single "Drift Away" from her new CD." - Stuart Derdeyn The Province
"No. 8" receives my highest rating of 5*****. Highly Recommended and Thoroughly Enjoyed. Another Treasure of an Album from a Truly Canadian Treasure..." - John Vermilyea (Blues Underground Network)
"The album received an A on an A to F grading scale, with Drift Away, Drunk, I Will I Won't, Sprack Chica Boogie, and Neutral Territory. Very eclectic sound! Powerful vocals set the tone for a blend of genres in this album." Matt Nightingale CHSR Music Director

Plays on CBC NXNW, CKUA Edmonton, CFOU Trois Rivieres, CJUM Winnipeg, Beauty Radio Tampa, CHSR, Fredericton, CHMR, St. John's, Lots of support from local CFRO: What The Folk, She-Boom (one hour of the show was dedicated to No.8 ), Fruitsalad, Bandcouver. Thanks so much to all the hosts, producers and music directors for the adds and plays. If I am missing anyone please let me know as I do my own tracking among many other things ;) Playing live on Melodies in Mind CJSF 90.1 FM May 24th at 8 pm PST and acoustically at the Friday Night Artisan Market eco-village in Yarrow BC May 27th 5 - 9 sharing the bill with Jared Fowler.

Returning the love I am excited to be playing the CFRO benefit for SHE-BOOM and Coop radio May 28th 7pm doors 8pm start Rhizome Cafe 317 E. Broadway $10-20 sliding scale please get there early, its limited seating and this event will definitely sell out! She-Boom is a local show that supports independent women in music both local and worldwide. Alice will be joining me at this event where I will be playing in a mostly solo singer/songwriter style.

Stream the entire album or download your copy of No. 8 at bandcamp, buy No. 8 CDs at cdbaby or directly through me . Hope to see you soon and keep in touch.
Love,
