One of Christy’s most popular vocal CD, "Change Is Good," is being called her richest and most eclectic work yet. It has the acoustic folk sound that Snow fans have grown to love but also includes a little blues, a little rock, and a lot of incredibly positive songs. “A CD about living life in tune with a higher consciousness” says Indie-Music.com. There is an ever-present message in her music that we are always at choice as to how we view and make a difference in our world.

Christy began performing professionally in 1991 at women’s music festivals, folk festivals, folk venues and churches. Christy has a very diverse folk style of music that has been described as both playful and spiritual and leads the listener on a path of empowerment, self-love and present moment awareness.

Christy resides in North Carolina but tours internationally and receives both national as well as international airplay of her music and worldwide distribution of her CDs.

Lyrics

Ripples

Written By: Christy Snow

We are all the ripples on this endless sea
We all change the world everyday to some degree
Even when we think we’re not
No matter which road we choose
We’re changing the world everyday
Me and you

Chorus
So how will you change the world today
What are the things you will do which are the worlds you’ll choose to say
How will you change the world today
And not just if you’re trying to but in your everyday
How will you change the world today

Maybe it’s the little things you say
Or the things you choose not to say that
Impact a life
From the car that cuts you off on the road
To the children who become what there shown
Can you believe
You’re part of what you see

Chorus

How will you change
What will you do
Who will they see and what is your truth
X 3

Chorus

Change Is Good

Written By: Christy Snow

Well, I was just getting comfortable in my new space
Planted flower beds and painted the ceiling, rearranged the place
Knocked down a wall added on a room
Didn’t think it’d be time to move on so soon
But I’m thinkin’ that…
Chorus
There is always change
There is always change
There is always change
And change is good

I’ve heard it said that discontent is to be considered divine
And even if we haven’t seen it that way
That there’s always time
To search avenue after avenue
And ever angle to find
What it is we’re supposed to see there in our mind’s eye
And I think it’s that…
Chorus
Bridge
Maybe this illusion of discontent
Is what keeps us forever pushing on
Grateful but seeking never growing
Complacent with life’s song
And I’m thinkin’ that…
Chorus
