Need to Be Blue? | Posted August 22, 2007

Get this straight from the outset: Blue on Blue, Leigh Nash's long anticipated solo debut, is not even a pseudo-return of Sixpence None the Richer. Sorry. That being said, Blue on Blue, contains many of the same elements that made Sixpence such a fan favorite: Intelligent, accessible lyrics, shrewd instrumentation and Ms. Nash's trademark ingenuous and evocative vocals.

Blue on Blue's lyrics, many written with longtime collaborator Matt Slocum, include plenty of double entendre, leaving some songs open to romantic and/or spiritual interpretation- just the sort of songs that are ripe for mainstream crossover. Others are tender, unapologetically romantic ballads celebrating love between man & woman and mother & child. To quote her bio on nettwerk.com,, Blue on Blue is "a sweetly understated collection of musings on love and motherhood."

Musically, Leigh's solo debut is an artistic progression from her Sixpence days. The musical mood is introspective but remain optimistically upbeat. Most of Blue on Blue's songs are mid-tempo ballads and light rock infused with touches of orchestral strings or old school, New Orleans jazz. The overall flavor and tone harkens back to Sixpence's "Kiss Me" but with a touch more effervescense and inspiration.

Was Blue on Blue worth the wait? Yes. If Shawn Colvin, KT Tunstall, Diana Krall, Jeni Vardaneau, Sara Groves, and, of course, Sixpence None the Richer are in heavy rotation on your mp3 player, then make some room on your playlist for Blue on Blue.

Stellar | Posted August 07, 2009
Leigh's voice makes this album. Its so light and unique it captivates you- it really really does. Along the Wall and Ocen Sized Love and Between the lives are the must haves

This is art! | Posted August 26, 2007
The first time I heard this album, I was using a free trial for music downloading. By the time I was halfway through the album, I knew I had to get a copy I could have for keeps. In my opinion any of the tracks could be a hit single.

The songs are well-written, Leigh is a wonderful singer and you don\'t get tired of listening to the CD over and over again. \"Ocean Size Love\" and \"Blue\" are my favorites and the rest are great as well. I can\'t imagine anyone saying he/she didn\'t like this CD unless he/she was expecting something loud and fast. This CD is totally worth the money.
