In promoting her new album, She Remembers Everything, country singer Rosanne Cash features photos of fellow female songbirds, among them Janis Joplin, accompanied by a plaintive lyric, “Who know who she used to be before it all went dark?”
That’s a gripping start — as if she needed one, she doesn’t, following her triple Grammy-winning masterpiece, The River & The Thread.
Both confessional and cathartic, the material covered in “Remembers” reverberates with an urgency of a woman who has owns her story and voice, and is driven to speak. Cash will soon share in concert songs from the record, which was released in October, amidst the acoustical pleasures of the Younes and Soraya Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts, also known as The Soraya. Cash will also include selections from Norma Rae – the musical she is writing with husband John Leventhal based on the 1979 hit film.
The title song from the diva’s album: moody, melodic, melancholic:
