Winnie’s Song – Christie’s debut CD – reflects both her interest in literary arts and her deep respect for the power and colour of language. The title track captures a pivotal and visually evocative scene in her sister Catherine Simmons Niven’s award-winning novel A Fine Daughter. It and others on the album were written specifically to perform with Catherine at readings. A number of other tracks, including “Let’s Pour a Drink Vera”, “The Underpainter” and “It’s Not a Secret” were written either for or about works by notable Canadian authors. Christie’s lyrics are intelligent, reflective and vivid and she sings them with a hauntingly fine voice – one many consider to be her greatest gift.
