One of the best concerts that I went to in 2011 was Ane Brun when she played in Whelan's music venue in Camden Street, Dublin. In my last bookshop job here in Dublin one of my friends, Rike, used to play Ane Brun's music a lot. Two of those songs were her cover versions of Alphaville's Big in Japan and Cyndi Lauper's True Colors. They are both great versions but it is Ane's own songs that I love more which I think are simply wonderful. She reminded me of a singer like Bjork who puts herself completely into her songs during her performance of them but she is completely her own individual music artist as well. Her newest album is It All Starts With One. Her website is here.
On April 27th Ane plays Dublin again, this time in Vicar Street which is a bigger venue and always has a great atmosphere.
Here are three songs by Ane Brun.
The first is The Puzzle.
the second is This Voice
and the third song is from her newest album. This is Do You Remember
