Singer-songwriter Mickey Cash is releasing her debut album this month, a gritty compilation that has already caught the attention of some of music city's elite. The album features warm, vintage undertones combined with Cash's honest and raw vocal delivery as she sings about love, loss and the strength to carry on. Along side Grammy nominated Todd Lombardo (who has worked with the likes of Patty Loveless, Taylor Swift, Gwyneth Paltrow, Allison Krauss and Jerry Douglas), Cash has crafted an album that both echoes the honesty of her influences while commanding her own creative space. As the album hearkens back to the grittiness of groups such as The Band and Little Feat, there endures an undeniable feminine strength to Cash's voice that exudes an evolved confidence in her own skin. Cash's timeless vocal quality and soulful delivery pays fair homage to her lineage. The album features some of Nashville's finest including Tim Marks (Taylor Swift, Lionel Richie), Josh Hunt (Allison Krauss), Erik Kenny (David Nail), Jason Goforth (Matracia Berg), David Henry (Allison Krauss, REM), Jonell Mosser (Delbert McClinton), Angel Snow (Allison Krauss) and Richard Dodd (Tom Petty, Green Day, the Dixie Chicks). Shows are planned for the first of the year.
