Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer is in the Denver area on Wednesday Feb. 15 at The Soiled Dove Underground in support of her new solo album, “Hymns & Sacred Songs” and tour.
Nash’s angelic voice helped Sixpence gain crossover audiences with “Kiss Me” and “There She Goes,” while the band remained grounded in its beliefs. There’s no mistaking Nash in the solo project with her unique vocals. The album ranges from a country feel with “Savior, Like a Shepherd (Blessed Jesus)” and its banjo picking, to a strong ballad on “Power of the Cross” and the poignant lyrics of the worship song “Song of Moses,” which is my favorite on the CD.
Nash gets backing from some power names in the Christian music industry: Producer John Hartley (Rebecca St. James), Derri Daugherty (Jeremy Camp) along with musicians Stu G, Paul Mabury and Matt Stanfield, who have played with Casting Crowns, Hillsong, Steven Curtis Chapman and Mandisa.
