Well a bit boring to poke another ‘media of the moment’ type thing at you. But yesterday I managed to come across the new Leigh Nash CD, “Blue on Blue” (former lead singer of Sixpence None the Richer). I knew it was coming out in August and was intending to get my hands on it, but not expecting it to be around so soon.
Anyway, it’s a winner. Probably on the more ‘cheesy’ end of the scale of music I listen to – much more ‘pop’ than Sixpence stuff. But her voice is beautiful and you can either ‘no brainer’ the thing or have a decent listen. It was declared ‘liked’ immediately by at least Laura and Hannah. I guess you could compare it slightly to Sarah McLaughlan – not that I really know any of her stuff. Same producer guy, same genre apparently. Just sort of… hmm, fun, enjoyable and a lot less depressing than a lot of Sixpence Stuff. Written mostly to/about her husband and son with the underlying ‘God stuff’ poked in there pretty subtley (true Sixpence style) now and then.
Favourite songs thus far would probably have to be Along the Wall or Never Finish.
