LOVE, SALVATION AND THE JOY OF BIRTH

It’s been more than two years since Leigh Nash and her longtime musical compatriot Matt Slocum agreed to fold up the tent known as Sixpence None the Richer. That means fans have been waiting two years for the inevitable solo debut of Mrs. Nash. Considering Sixpence took five years between its last two albums, two years seems like nothing.

There’s no use trying to critique a Leigh Nash solo record without referencing her work in Sixpence. It was her gently aching voice that brought Slocum’s songs to life; and Sixpence was a fantastic band that many fans already miss terribly. Fortunately for them, Nash’s Blue on Blue compares very favorably indeed. Though certainly not a Sixpence sound-alike, the same love of melody, texture and romance shines through. And rest assured, this is no soundtrack-driven compilation of “Kiss Me” tributes either. In short, Nash has delivered exactly what Sixpence fans came to expect—excellence.

Though self-released, Blue on Blue is far from “indie” in its aesthetics. Producer Pierre Marchand (Sarah McLachlan, Daniel Lanois) brings the songs—all written or co-written by Nash—to life with articulate grace. Though predominantly oriented around vocal and piano, the music never sounds sparse. From pure pop to borderline rock, with colors bright and subdued, Nash rallies her Sixpence experience to great effect, managing the sonic options well.

Lyrically, the collection is truly fascinating. The dominant, if not central, theme is the birth of her first child two years ago, though a casual listen may not make that apparent. “Angel Tonight” and “Just a Little” both deal with the subject of new parenthood while never settling for sentimentality. They reflect on connection, intimacy and unconditional love in a way that, while particularly interesting from a parental perspective, works on other levels as well. When the baby isn’t the pink elephant in the room, Nash’s relationship with her husband, Mark Nash (PFR), is. The sublime opening track, “Along the Wall” (co-written by Marchand), places all of the forthcoming romance, struggle, fear and bliss smack in the lap of the Almighty.

Overall, Nash’s solo debut more than lives up to expectations. Artful and accessible, the winsome charm of the Sixpence-era Leigh Nash remains, while she deftly breaks new ground of her own. The album’s spirituality is as gentle as the voice that explores it and may be lost on more didactic ears; but, on the whole, Blue on Blue is about as satisfying as faith-informed art gets.

  1. 5 Stars Out Of 5
    September 19, 2006
    Trevor Vincent
    I would give this a 5 but where would Leigh go after a score like that.I was a fan of Sixpence especially Divine Discontent, have to say it though, has Mrs NASH done the right thing?Well a resounding yes comes from me. The album presents us with pure class, pure divine content. From the opening of NERVOUS, to the piano arrangement in OCEAN SIZED LOVE, this is an album that just screams easy listening but so good for any occasion whether it be churching, through to inspiring, to socializing.Between the lines spooks me especially when I'm driving home in the early hours, so much so I play it at least twice!! Angel is upbeat refreshing and encouraging.Change is as good as a rest they say. The future looks good for the voice God gave for all of us to listen to. Thank you God, thank you Matt Slocum.
