Review: Leigh Nash invites fans to 'Get Happy' with refreshing EP SPECIAL

By Markos Papadatos     Mar 3, 2020 in Music

Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Leigh Nash of Sixpence None The Richer fame released her stunning new EP "Get Happy."

The EP opens with the crisp "God Gave Me Horses," which was written with Connie Harrington, and it is followed by the 20th anniversary version of her smash Sixpence None the Richer single "Kiss Me," which is simply glorious, and worthy of the repeat button. The expressive "Something Worth Leaving Behind" is a fitting tribute to her late father and his guitar.

Equally remarkable is the atmospheric "My Love My Drug," and "Don't Let Me Die in Dallas" is another homage to her father that was written with Tom Douglas (who has written songs for such country queens as Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert). It closes on an exhilarating note with the sultry "Get Happy."

Get Happy is available on Apple MusicAmazon Music, and on Spotify.

The Verdict

Overall, Leigh Nash shines on her latest musical effort, Get Happy. There are no filler tracks on this six-track studio offering. With her heavenly and resonant new version of "Kiss Me," it is evident that Nash only gets better with age and experience. The two new songs "Something Worth Leaving Behind" and "Get Happy" are worth the price of this EP alone. It garners an A rating.
