The grandson of Maybelle Carter and the only son to John R Cash and June Carter Cash, he preserves the family legacy and is a caretaker to the heritage of his musical ancestors. He began his walk as a music producer with his mother June Carter Cash on her CD, Press On, which won a Grammy in 1999, then went on to work under Rick Rubin as Associate Producer on his father Johnny Cash’s Grammy winning records “American III: Solitary Man” and “American IV: The Man Comes Around”, the latter receiving three CMA awards. He also produced his mother’s record “Wildwood Flower”, which won a Grammy for Best Traditional Folk album in 2003. His 2004 production “Unbroken Circle: The Musical Heritage of the Carter Family” received three Grammy nominations. John Carter is co-Producer on Marty Stuart’s CD, Badlands. The CD “The Voice of the Spirit, the Gospel of the South” released in April of 2006, received critical regard and acclaim. His production on Billy Joe Shaver’s “Everybody’s Brother”, helped earn a Grammy nomination in 2007. John Carter has produced material for Loretta Lynn, Josh Turner, Brooks & Dunn, Elvis Costello, Wylie and the Wild West, Dr. Ralph Stanley, George Jones, Mavis Staples, Lynda Carter, The Mighty Clouds of Joy, Sheryl Crow, John Randal and Jessi Alexander, Norman and Nancy Blake, Tim O’ Brien, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Kris Kristofferson, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson, Earl and Randy Scruggs, Rosanne Cash, John Cowan, Rodney Crowell, Vince Gill, Tony Rice, and John Prine. In total, he has been a producer on five Grammy Award winning records. John Carter’s first CD of his own music titled “Bitter Harvest” was released only to the international market in 2003. His latest CD, entitled “The Family Secret”, is available everywhere and received a three starred review in Rolling Stone. Ana Cristina is a Cuban-American singer who was born June 2 in Miami. She is known for her bluesy contralto vocals and rare “Whistle Register”. Ana writes songs in the Pop/Soul genre with the help of the guitar and piano. Her hazel eyes allude to a certain mystery that is present in the lyrics of her songs, which she admits to being autobiographical in nature. She cites a broad range of influences including great jazz singers Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn, to urban social consciousness of hip-hop music of today, and gravitates towards darker cinematic sounds and bountiful use of harmonies. Ana Cristina commands the stage with her strong vocal prowess and her retro inspired look that is present both in her music as well has her image.
