Bio

About Ana

Ana Cristina Cash is an American singer-songwriter, raised in Miami, Florida by her Cuban parents who moved to the United States in the early 1960s during the onset of the revolution. Growing up listening to a multitude of genres, Cash’s sound was influenced by an eclectic array of inspiration from gritty Blues and Jazz to Pop-Country. Writing directly from the heart, the singer-songwriter’s recordings exhibit a broad vocal range, spanning from an expressive and resonating contralto to a soaring coloratura soprano, otherwise known as the “whistle register.”

 

The bilingual artist started her professional music career debuting her talents at age 6 on the Spanish-language variety show “Sabado Gigante,” where she continued to film regularly until the age of 14. At the age of 16, she signed to Sony Music’s Latin division and released her first album Ana Cristina in the Spanish-language, working with multiple Grammy Award winning producers. Following quickly after her first release, Cash lent her unsurpassable voice to Sony’s successful Christmas compilation album, Nuestra Navidad, with her moving version of Shubert’s “Ave Maria,” cementing her place in the bilingual music scene.

 

At the young age of 19, Cash was given the honor of singing “ The Star-Spangled Banner” at the 2005 Presidential Inauguration, making her the first Hispanic in history to do so. Cash was then asked to return in 2006 as she was invited to perform at the White House for the President of the United States, the Crowned Prince of Spain and notable world ambassadors. That same year, she released “You Can Change the World” as a duet with Michaelangelo. The song’s bilingual counterpart, “El Mundo Puedes Cambiar,” went on to become the theme song for the World Cup Germany 2006.

 

On Oct. 29, 2016, Ana Cristina married music producer John Carter Cash and has since been writing and recording the music she feels she was born to sing. During September 2017, the couple’s daughter, Grace June, was born.

 

Writing from her heart first, all of Ana’s projects reflect her connection to Rockabilly and gritty Blues, along with a flavor of Country and Soul. 

In March of 2017, Ana Cristina released, The Tough Love EP.  The debut single, “Tough Love Woman,” embodies the power of female strength and sets the tone for the entire album. 

 

Ana Cristina then released a full-length Christmas album in 2018 titled, My Christmas Collection. With a little help from her husband, John Carter Cash, the two sing a heartwarming duet of “Baby It’s Cold Outside” while also penning an original tune called “Santa Claus is Real.” The album also includes classics such as: “O Holy Night,” “White Christmas,” and a breathtaking bilingual version of “Silent Night.”

 

Currently living in Nashville, Ana Cristina prepares for the release of her upcoming project, “Shine,” slated for an early 2020 release date. Produced by John Carter Cash and recorded at the Cash Cabin Studio in Hendersonville, Tenn. (in which Johnny Cash built himself in 1979), “Shine” displays an array of musical influences including folk, jazz and blues, fused with a country background. She recently co-wrote “La Prision De Folsom”, the Norteño Spanish-Language version of Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” with the legendary Los Tigres Del Norte which is currently charting on Billboard. Fans can get a taste of Ana’s new album with the release of her first song off the record, “Broken Roses.” Released on World Mental Health Day (Oct. 10, 2019), “Broken Roses” tells a heartbreaking story of the trials and tribulations that go along with loving another who struggles with mental health and/or substance abuse. The music video for “Broken Roses” was directed by acclaimed director David McClister and was shot in Nashville. Ana hopes to create awareness and promote an open conversation with purpose via her music and the release of “Broken Roses.”
