ROSANNE CASH

One of the country’s pre-eminent singer-songwriters, Rosanne Cash has released 15 albums of extraordinary songs that have earned four Grammy Awards, 12 Grammy nominations and numerous other accolades for songwriting and sound recordings. Also an accomplished author, Cash’s 2010 memoir Composed garnered widespread praise from critics and landed on The New York Times bestseller list.

Cash is a music community catalyst, often bringing together giants of American roots music for various events and providing a valued voice in documenting modern music history. In 2021, Cash was the first female composer to receive the MacDowell Medal, awarded since 1960 to an artist who has made an outstanding contribution to American culture.

Cash is also an author whose four books include the best-selling memoir Composed, which the Chicago Tribune called “one of the best accounts of an American life you’ll likely ever read.” Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Oxford American, The Nation, and many more print and online publications. Her most recent book, Bird on a Blade (2018), was published by the University Of Texas Press, combining images by acclaimed artist Dan Rizzie with Cash’s lyrics. In addition to regular touring, Cash has partnered in programming collaborations with Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, SFJAZZ, the Minnesota Orchestra, and the  Library of Congress. She served as artist-in-residence at New York University and in 2018 and 2023 she was a resident artistic director at SFJAZZ.  Along with many other honors and awards, Cash received the 2021 Edward MacDowell Medal, awarded since 1960 to an artist who has made an outstanding contribution to American culture. She is the first woman composer to receive this prestigious honor. Last month she was elected as an Honorary American member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. 

“I consider artists to be in the service industry; the premier service industry for the heart and soul. I am curious to a pathological degree and the Sword of Time hangs over me, and those two things— curiosity and the hourglass— make me feel more urgent than ever to connect, to find community, and to create. It doesn’t matter what the world thinks, it only matters that what is unsaid and what is unseen is given form and has a voice.”

Late last year, Rosanne and her husband, guitarist John Leventhal (6 Grammys), also her songwriting, producing and performing partner, launched a new record label, RumbleStrip Records to reexamine and rerelease Rosanne’s early period recordings originally on Columbia/Sony Music. A 30th Anniversary remastered edition of the Cash/Leventhal produced album The Wheel was the inaugural release followed by John Leventhal’s very first solo album entitled Rumble Strip in late January.
