Editor reviews

The daughter of iconic American singer and songwriter Johnny Cash, Rosanne Cash has found her own success in the music industry. Cash won a Grammy in 1985 and has found herself nominated nearly a dozen other times. Her songs regularly make appearances on the top of the Country Music Billboard Charts. In this episode of Live at the 92nd Street Y, Cash meets with writer A.M. Holmes for a discussion about her artistic inspirations and her experience as a singer and songwriter.

Summary

"Driven by a deep love and obsession with language, poetry and melody, I had first wanted to be a writer, in a quiet room, setting depth charges of emotion in the outside world, where my readers would know me only by my language," writes Rosanne Cash in Composed, her new memoir. "Then I decided I wanted to be a songwriter, writing not for myself but for other voices. Then, despite myself, I began performing my own songs, which rattled me to the core." Upon the publication of Composed, Ms. Cash sits down for a conversation about her life in music.

Unputdownable! Great value!

Mainly for fans of Rosanne Cash but certainly interesting enough to keep a general music fan listening. Gripping interview!! Great songs!!
