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 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.

"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.
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!
