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.

Please! Please, Ms. Nash make another album soon!
As a fan of Sixpence and her Delerium track, I am happy to have found Blue on Blue. It's definitly worth the buy.
Big mistake? Not at all. Leigh's voice has always mixed the innocence of a child and the world-weary experience of a woman. Here, as is to be expected, her voice is the hook. While the music falls somewhere between indie pop and art rock lite, the lyrics are genuine and effective, and Leigh's sincerity of tone lifts each song above the ordinary. None of the songs are as effervescently pop-sounding as "There She Goes," and none of them reach the dark moodiness of Sixpence's "This Beautiful Mess." Instead, between the wide-eyed hope and weary reality, Leigh Nash shares a refreshing outlook that is nevertheless heartfelt.
Althought I miss the edginess of the old Sixpence, I am pleasantly surprised by my appreciation for Leigh's personal effort here. I'll keep letting these songs grow on me, while cheering for her to continue on this revitalized career path.
