What attracts people most to Christie Cook’s music is not only her appealing pure voice, but also the sincerity and honesty that permeates every song she writes. While looking at the world from a perspective of Christian faith, she skillfully paints a picture and tells an amazing story. Her lyrics are poignant and compelling, yet candid.
In 1997, she completed her first CD, Their Stories do Linger. Her second CD, Fair Breeze, was recorded in New England and the title track earned Best Celtic Song honors at the Just Plain Folks 2002 Music Awards.
Christie’s faith takes center stage in her latest CD, New Day, released in 2008. Each song takes the listener through life’s daily struggles and triumphs, and it’s obvious to the listener that God is her closest friend and confidante, her refuge and strength. Touching a wide range of life’s experiences, her Christian music is refreshing because she addresses the human spirit not in the narrow sense of clichés and stick figures, but as an artist whose eye captures the true color of life.
