About Norm Brunet

Norm has long been a part of that elite group of artists, a gifted songwriter, an accomplished musician, and adding to his triple threat credentials are the always on target and distinctive vocals.

“The first thing people usually comment on is the raspiness of my voice, I guess that came from years of performing night after night in clubs”!

Norm’s Smokey-throated vocal work has a special attractiveness that keeps you listening for more. His voice rings with experience and texture. We are at ease with a vocalist who doesn’t need to struggle to emote. As a songwriter, his versatility comes to the forefront with an intuitive ability to take everyday situations and turn them into songs, not just lyrics on paper or grooves on discs but observances of life!
Larry Delaney – Country Music News

“His tunes are exceptional! Substance? Plenty, Hooks? Norm could open his own tackle shop!”
Susan Beyer – The Ottawa Citizen

Norm has spent most of 2016 and 2017 writing and creating for his new album ‘’It Don’t Get Better Than This’’ the single now available on all digital platform and the full length set to release on November 10th 2017!

Nice review of my new album from Larry Delaney of Can Country!

He's back !!!.... Well actually he never went away.
Like most country singer/songwriters who made an impact with their songs and recordings during the pre-Garth and Shania heydays of country music, Norm Brunet has been sitting on the sidelines, waiting for the right moment to re-enter the fray. He now makes a timely return to the spotlight with his new album, It Don't Get Better Than This, filled with ten new original songs. The new work is a strong follow-up to his earlier albums, Me And My Guitar and Life Goes On, both of which drew critical praise, with several of the songs earning national chart action.
Norm Brunet has several things going for him on the new album. His gritty vocal delivery has evolved into an intriguing mix that blends a Leonard Cohen whisper with a Keith Urban drawl; his songs provide a mature look at both the up's and downs of life; and the work is further enhanced with some truly sparkling production touches.
The album's title track It Don't Get Better Than This is a natural pick as the lead single from the package. The song puts a down- home twist to a modern day domestic lifestyle, and it deserves radio's attention. There are several other standouts -- Pour Me Another One is a gutsy lament that carries a thoughtful message; while She's Afraid To Stay stirs many special images; and Can't Stop Thinking is a hurtin' song that is delivered with a contrasting bubbly touch. The album also features several upbeat moments with tunes like Good Times And Tan Lines, Put Some Life Back In My Life, and Heartbreaker Girl...the latter reminiscent of Rodney Crowell at his best. There's also a hidden gem here in the song Like Out Of A Dream, a tune inspired by a pet dog adoption, but it carries an even heavier meaning.
Norm Brunet, an Ottawa-based performer, calls upon long-time music partners Dan Artuso and Victor Nesrallah to provide him with tasty accompaniment on a variety of instruments - all three have combined to co-produce the album.
By the way... It Don't Get Better Than This !!
