Ana Cristina Cash releases her new prjoect, “The Tough Love EP”, featuring co-written material with husband and producer, John Carter Cash, today, March 14th. This highly anticipated body of work encourages with confidence and southern attitude.
Ever since I was a child, music has been my most trustworthy companion. I have always taken it everywhere with me. It fills me up completely and I’ve never felt alone,” said Cash.“I remember feeling the music deep in my bones. I still do. When I began songwriting, I merged melodies and music to paint a picture of the inner workings of my soul. No matter the human framework of a tough, guarded exterior, the mind and emotions are dazzlingly complex. The Tough Love EP is my own personal sonic spectrum of these inner complexities.”
Recorded at the historical Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, “The Tough Love EP” showcases Cash‘s vocal range with brilliant ease and rootsy soul. Influenced by long nights of singing in dusty bar rooms and hours turning up scratched blues and rockabilly vinyl records, Cash reaches deep as her songs explore and surpass new boundaries.
A focal track on the project is a unique interpretation of John Anderson’s “Seminole Wind” in which was exclusively featured via Country Rebel.
The songs on her new record have ‘a dark and mysterious flair,’ and that flair is obvious in ‘Seminole Wind,’” said Country Rebel. “Her rendition is beautifully haunting, so much in fact that it is sure to give you goosebumps when you hear it.”
