Brun’s music is achingly beautiful. You know why Peter Gabriel was enturalled. Imagine Bjork with none of the irritating bits (a lot to imagine it is true). Comparing Ane Brun to another performer isn’t right in any case. She is someone you compare other performers to—her music is a benchmark. It is that proverbial yardstick you use to measure the work of other artists.
The tour, at least from the Gabriel fan perspective, is to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of So. Gabriel will perform the record in its entirety). He will also be playing other music from his vast, celebrated career. If you go be sure to get there early to see Brun. Her music is hypnotic and brilliant. Check out the video for the track, Words, below. Brun's latest record is It All Starts With One.
She sings on Gabriel's latest, New Blood. You can find out more about Brun at her website, www.anebrun.com.
