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. Never a dull musical moment, her arrangement of instruments includes guitar, mandolin, piano, violin, cello, oboe, and even banjo and congas. Christie Cook's music totally captures the listener's mind which never wanders but waits in anticipation for the next song. 'New Day', the third release from Christian singer/songwriter Christie Cook, has the ease of an artist who has found her voice and the authenticity of a woman unafraid to face her own weaknesses, yet rejoicing in each day's God-given victories. There is a vulnerability here, an openness that draws the listener in. Through Christie's stories, the mundane - a garden statue, a trip to the grocery store - becomes profound, and the deepest struggles of the human spirit - a concentration camp, the very cross of Christ - become accessible to all. Indeed, these are songs of hope, of heartbreak, inspiration and conviction. Never preachy, Christie's lyrics challenge and inspire, even as her easy folk style soothes and calms.
