"There is a woman's real life, complex experiences and layered understanding in these songs," says Cash. "I could not have written them 10 years agonot even close. Time is shorter. I have more to say."
Closing out the four decades Cash has spent as a recording artist, She Remembers Everything contains echoes of nearly all her previous styles. Listeners familiar with "Seven Year Ache" or Interiors will recognize the knowing ache of this record. Those who listened to recordings and live shows in subsequent yearswhich have included residencies at the San Francisco Jazz Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Library of Congresswill likewise find the literary voice that has framed her more recent music. Cash's time focused on roots music also lends a classic form to her songwriting that makes it universal and timeless.

"She Remembers Everything is a rich and satisfying banquet. There's nothing rough and ready the songs have been carefully sequenced. Nothing palls, and the array of musical textures is beguiling, each song perfectly framed. The title track opens with Cash's voice in its lower register, suspended over a piano motif which recurs and is picked up by the guitar as the song builds, Sam Phillips's vocal harmony tracking Cash's own. Then it all falls away, a single cello line intertwining delicately with piano and guitar. Familiar to viewers of HBO's True Detective for which the song was written, 'My Least Favorite Life' closes the album. There's nothing pared down about this version, which is lavishly scored and in which, after a pause, a string quartet has the last word. It's addictive." - The Arts Desk
"If you follow Rosanne Cash on social media, you know how passionately she speaks about our turbulent world. Her latest album, She Remembers Everything, brings us her most topical songwriting to date. Social concerns are built into her lyrics and compassion is at the forefront of her voice. The album's title track, co-written and sung with Sam Phillips, describes a woman who's been broken by the times, exhausted and dazed, but is still aware and still singing her truth. Her sharp memory holds both a weariness and a threat; mirroring that, the song's gentle melody is bolstered by an undercurrent of dark bass guitar." - NPR Heavy Rotation: 10 Songs Public Radio Can't Stop Playing
"On She Remembers Everything, Cash explores rage, regret, long term love, feminism and memory in ways that are detailed enough to feel like they're coming from her core and generous enough to let us hear our own hearts and souls in the sounds." - NPR World Cafe
