The River and The Thread, her first album of original songs since 2006, Rosanne Cash and husband/ co-writer/ producer/ guitarist John Leventhal traveled the American south in search of creative inspiration that would reflect what she calls 'the resonance, beauty and longing of the region.' From Arkansas boyhood home of her iconic father Johnny to William Faulkner's house in Mississippi to the small towns and Crescent City of the Delta, Cash says she started to 'feel a deeper layer of the South than I had ever experienced.' Stories were culled, lyrics penned, songs written. As with all Rosanne Cash albums, there's a subtle balance of traditional country overtones with acoustic folk and Americana leanings, Leventhal's shimmering guitar fills and a Cash's voice, plaintive and seductive. In many ways, The River and The Thread is a logical step from her 2009 album The List, a collection of country classics handpicked by her father that connected family roots to the distinctive, decidedly modern singer and songwriter Cash had become.
