Leigh Nash to release album of hymns old and new

AMERICAN singer Leigh Nash, best known for her work fronting Sixpence None The Richer, has her first solo album in five years released through Kingsway/EMI CMG. 'Hymns & Sacred Songs' was produced by John Hartley (Matt Redman, Stuart Townend) and engineered and mixed by Derri Daugherty (Jeremy Camp, Leeland). The project contains the lyrics of Fanny Crosby, Charles Wesley and many other hymn writers with new melodies as well as newly written songs by Nash, Graham Kendrick, Keith Getty, Stuart Townend and others.

Said Leigh, "I am so very thankful for the opportunity to sing these words and even get to infuse some of them with new melodies. It is a gift above any I can presently think of, to sing to my God! The musicians, producer and engineers are all so gifted and the songs so rich in word and melody that my feet were dancing and my heart was constantly lifted throughout the recording of this record! I pray you will have the same symptoms! I was really excited by the idea of making a record of hymns. I grew up loving singing in the congregation at my church, always wishing to have the courage to sing solos in the church choir. I finally got my solos in the form of this record!" CR
