Ed Cash (born August 6, 1971) is a producer, songwriter, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist.[1] He was named the "Producer of the Year"[2] at the Gospel Music Awards for four consecutive years (2004–2007)[2] and gains recognition for his work with Christian singer, Chris Tomlin.[1] In addition to several Grammy Nominations[3] and countless BMI Citations of Achievement,[4] Cash has produced or written with artists such as Steven Curtis Chapman, Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Colin Bernard, Amy Grant, Bebo Norman, David Crowder Band, Bethany Dillon, Kari Jobe, Dave Barnes, Matt Wertz, Caedmon's Call, Casting Crowns, Annette Lee.[1] He is a member of the band We the Kingdom.


Cash also gains recognition as a songwriter for having co-written and produced "How Great is Our God",[5] which earned him five Dove awards,[6] including Song of the Year and Praise and Worship Song of the Year.[6] Along with having co-written with Chris Tomlin,[5] Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) and Amy Grant, Ed Cash has also received honors from the BMI Awards as the Christian Songwriter of the Year and Song of the Year.[7]

In an addition to his often credited acoustic and electric guitars and backing vocals, he has received album credits for playing banjo, mandolin, Hammond B3 organ, Wurlitzer organ, harmonica, Rhodes, programming, synthesizer, piano, drums, bass guitar, percussion, and both string and choir arrangements.[1]

Cash's involvement in a religious group called The Gathering International came under scrutiny when Christianity Today published an article investigating claims that the group is a cult. The article claimed that Cash's songwriting had helped fund the group and its leader, Wayne Jolley, and that Jolley had been given songwriting credit and royalties from Cash's portion of songs co-written with Christian music artist Chris Tomlin.[8] Christianity Today later revealed that Cash had left the group and had severed connections with Jolley.[9]
