Product Description

Product Description

As former front woman for Grammy-nominated band "Sixpence None the Richer," Leigh Nash has charmed audiences far and wide with her ethereal voice. Now, Leigh steps out on her own for her most personal project yet, her first solo album Blue on Blue. The release of Blue on Blue marks a significant time in Nash's life. Starting her career as a 15-year old girl with Sixpence None the Richer, she has matured into a woman whose wispy vocals and personal lyrics convey thirteen years of life experiences. With a new addition to her family to draw inspiration from, the singer/songwriter prepares to release an album that not only shares her voice with her audience, but also her heart.

I have always been a fan of Sixpence None the Richer, primarily because of Leigh Nash's vocal abilities. It's not even that she tries to do fancy vocal work such as trilling, but it just seems so effortless for her to sing and portray beautiful lyrics that can be entrancing.

I came across Blue on Blue by fate and decided to listen to it. It is defiitely a solid album with amazing songs such as "More of it", "Blue", and "Nervous in the Light of Dawn". Nash steps out of her Sixpence past and emerges as her own artist with her own rules.

I highly recommend this album to anyone who is bored of listening to generic popular music. It's an experience that self-proclaimed music listeners will at least want to experiment with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome return of "the angelic voice of Sixpence" Sept. 10 2006
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When Sixpence None the Richer's last album (2002's "Divine Miscontent") wasn't well received commercially, long-time duo singer Leigh Nash and guitarist Matt Slocum called it a day and disbanded Sixpence. Since then not much has been heard from Leigh Nash, until this release, her first solo album.

"Blue on Blue" (11 tracks, 44 min.) is a welcome return of the "angelic" voice of Leigh Nash. Her singing is one of the most unique and warm voices that you will ever hear. Leigh co-wrote all of the tracks of the album. One of the things that puzzles me about the album is the sequencing of the songs. When "Along The Wall" starts off, it's like you're being plunged midway into an album. In fact, a much better way would have been to make "More of It" the opener. Indeed the better songs on this set appear on the seond half: "Angel Tonight", "Cloud Nine", the title track and closer "Just A little" are fantastic songs. Matt Slocum, who wrote most of the songs for Sixpence, co-wrote one track, the beautiful balled "Nervous in the Light of Dawn".

In all, a welcome return of Leigh nash's beautiful voice after a 4 year hiatus after the demise of Sixpence. I can only hope that she will tour in support of this album and make a visit to Cincinnati or somewhere close by.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely divine! Aug. 24 2006
By Parkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Any fan of Sixpence None The Richer should like this album. That's not to say that Blue On Blue is too similar to Sixpence - there's more piano on this album, and it sounds a bit more poppy. This is not a bad thing, because Leigh's catchy song structures really shine in this environment. The only slight flaw here is the heaven theme is used on three songs. But "My Idea Of Heaven" is the best song here, and Leigh's angelic voice certainly fits the other two. Songs such as "Just A Little" and "Nervous In The Light Have Dawn" have that amazing imagery found in Leigh's songwriting. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars anything but Blue.... Aug. 21 2006
By J. M. McGregory - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This CD really displays Leigh's vocal abilities in a way that even Sixpence didn't. At the reigns of her own project....the lyrics, instrumentation, vocals all mesh perfectly. The lyrics are very thought-provoking, and yet display such a positive message (which is the irony of the title). Leigh's vocals are in top form....and the voice of an angel. What really also stood out to me was the experimentation with sounds/instruments----and it really paid off. The whole thing comes together into something I am sure she is incredibly proud of....and should be. And we are lucky enough to be along for the ride.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful jewel - pitch-perfect, ethereal, and vulnerable. Aug. 20 2006
By SockSpider Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Despite her 15 years in the music business, Leigh Nash is still a young woman. Not all that much older than the age where many musicians are just starting their careers. Technically she is a new solo artist, but many will recognize her voice as the lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer. With a platinum album and Grammy nomination under her belt, Nash is no newcomer and yet she maintains an innocence and fresh feeling throughout her debut solo CD.

Leigh's voice is the shining star of Blue on Blue. She sings with a flawless blend of strength and frailty -- a beautiful jewel, pitch-perfect, ethereal, and vulnerable. Let's not forget Blue on Blue is a debut CD, and with continued solid promotion this album will do well and set up even better things for Leigh. Expect her to continue to grow as a songwriter, and if she keeps her producer and crew together for her next album, watch out world!

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable departure from Sixpence Jan. 3 2007
By Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have to admit, I wasn't crazy about this album at first, as it seemed like a mroe worldly departure lyrically from the more spiritual substance of Sixpence None the Richer, but the more I listen to it, the more this album as grown on me. I think my mistake was in expecting more of Sixpence, which is NOT what this album is. This is Leigh Nash finding her own voice, style and direction. I can apprecaite the album knowing that. The songs are beautiful, just much less substantial ("my idea of heaven... lying here with you..." I'm thinking Leigh borrowed this lyric from a 1980's 'Heart' song, but no worries, it sounds great. This is a great album. Maybe the followup will have a little more substance to go with the beautiful vocals.
