It was in the early 90’s when she met guitarist and songwriter Matt Slocum and together they formed the band Sixpence None The Richer, a famed pop group that went on to win numerous awards and accolades, including two GRAMMY® Award nominations. In their career, Sixpence None The Richer recorded four full-length albums. Their debut, which released when Nash was just 16, was 1994’s critically acclaimed LP The Fatherless & The Widow. In the years that followed, the band released numerous timeless songs and huge radio hits, from the GRAMMY-nominated “Kiss Me” to “There She Goes,” among many others. Leigh Nash also recorded the song "Need to Be Next to You,” written by famed songwriter Diane Warren, for the 2000 movie Bounce, which became Nash's first solo single. She also made guest appearances on albums from bands such as Los Straightjackets and Delerium.
