"Review -- DANIELLE BRAUND -- No Tears"

Take a jazz pianists soul, add a dash of blues at times, and mix in some stage musical style vocals, and you pretty much get Danielle Braund's approach to her new CD No Tears.
Raised in Alberta, Braund studied classical voice at university where she was urged by her music professors into opera. According to her website bio at the same time, she found composing her own music to be the added creative outlet that she needed. With her music degree in hand, she headed to Detroit where she further honed her jazz piano and improvisation skills.
So the gal has a rather strong background in music, and it shows. She sings big. This is music akin to the likes of a Diana Krall, different in pitch and material, there is a similarity of approach.
Braund wrote all the songs here, and they are fine efforts too an example being the title cut, and How Beautiful.
This is a strong debut album which should cross over genres nicely. It certainly has the underpinnings of jazz, but isn't so far removed from something you'll hear on MuchMusic either (she needs a video for No Tears). It's a good mixture, which should earn this talented lady a lot of fans.
There is no doubt Braund was meant to sing, and she has chosen a genre which let's her push herself vocally, and as solid as this debut is, you get the feeling listening to her that she will only get better with time and experience on her side.
Definitely one for jazz fans and lovers of exciting new female vocalists.

2006 To The World (Single)




Always pushing the envelope, Danielle Braund is Never Satisfied.

Known for her contagious voice, Danielle has transcended herself by creating soulful music, with the power and intensity of a silky, sweet, locomotive. She has been described as ‘contemporary meets pop meets country’, but her music pays little attention to genre, with audiences getting lost in the emotional honesty of her performances and lyrics.

After opening for such acts as SEAN KINGSTON, BOYZ II MEN, AND KIM MITCHELL, Danielle proudly presents her new EP, "Sunday Morning".

Sunday Morning was written with the intention of creating a forward, bold and dynamic sound. To help her break through pop-contemporary boundaries, Danielle enlisted the help of producer Ryan Stewart (Carly Rae Jepsen) - the result is an award winning, breakthrough album that keeps her audience coming back for more.

Her music has evolved over time , and is the culmination of a musical degree from the University of Lethbridge, advanced jazz studies in harmony and composition with from Scott Gwinnell in Detroit, and moonlighting as a backup singer at the finest clubs for the hottest pop bands in NYC.

Her first known recording effort was her single “To The World” produced in 2006 by Wendy Starland (LADY GAGA). Danielle’s journey continued by recording her first, full-length album, “No Tears”, featuring all original, blues-infused songs with producer Stephen Joseph in 2007. No Tears , earned her an HONOURABLE MENTION in the INTERNATIONAL WEST COAST SONGWRITING CONTEST.

With her signature piano and new guitar in tow, Danielle Braund has boarded the train, and can’t wait for the ride.
