Today, we’re joined by Leigh Nash, the American singer and songwriter, best known for being lead vocalist for the pop band Sixpence None the Richer.
She tells me how she found her passion for music, what it’s been like touring on the road with her music, and how the 1990s iconic song ‘Kiss Me’ launched her career.
Leigh also places a lot on her faith and it was really easy to feel connected with someone like her. We end the chat by talking about what the future for Leigh holds, and why she treads lightly online…
