Cash Edward’s first personal brush with American roots music occurred on the well-documented front porch jams that Robert Earl Keen and Lyle Lovett shared during their college days in College Station, Texas. She moved to Austin and was an avid supporter of the live music scene.

In the mid 80’s Cash moved to Northern California, and found herself spending a lot of time at the legendary artist coop/listening room Freight & Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley. She soon became the publicist. It was there that she made the acquaintance of an up and coming singer-songwriter and fiddler, Laurie Lewis who was just releasing her first national solo recording with Flying Fish Records. They formed a business relationship that would last for more than 25 years with Cash handling Laurie’s publicity and booking. From that start came Under the Hat Productions, a booking agency that Cash founded that became one of the premier American roots booking agencies over the next 18 years.
