Leigh Nash

"The world knows Leigh Nash best as the delightful pixie-esque voice atop massive global hits such as “Kiss Me” and “There She Goes” with Sixpence None The Richer, but she’s worked tirelessly to define her perspective though her songwriting output, showcased on her latest project, “The Tide, Vol. 1,” a six-song collection of duets recorded with people Leigh considers personal superheroes.


“What I’ve found to be true with my songwriting is that I seem to serve a story or song better when it’s something that just happened naturally with me, like an encounter or conversation,” she says. “I tried it back with Sixpence, but I’m just now starting to feel a little bit more at home in those songwriter shoes.”


Combine those choices of subject matter — honesty with partners in times of strife, recognizing others’ perspectives in periods of trouble, identifying blessings in the everyday — with duet partners featuring voices both iconic and close to home, and The Tide reveals an artist at the peak of her powers."


Jeremy Lister

Nashville’s Jeremy Lister started connecting with music while growing up in the middle of Mississippi. A son of a preacher, he began singing and learning harmonies in church at the age of two. Lister moved to Nashville in 2003, bringing his first EP, Shooting Star, with him. In 2005, he released his second EP, So Far, followed by the release of his Just One Day EP on Warner Bros. Records. That same year, he was invited to join the Ten Out of Tenn collective of singer/songwriters, which included then up-and-coming artists such as Andrew Belle, K.S. Rhoads, and Gabe Dixon.


In 2010, he joined a cappella group Street Corner Symphony for the second season of NBC’s "The Sing-Off." The group became a fan favorite, eventually claiming the second-place title in the competition. Ben Folds invited them out on the road immediately following their success on the show, which launched their touring career. Street Corner Symphony performs dozens of headlining shows all over the world each year.


Lister released his first solo full-length album, The Bed You Made, in 2011, which featured a duet with Alison Krauss on the song You and I. In 2013, he released the single Set Us Free, which became the theme song for the MTV series "The World Of Jenks." In 2017, he and his brothers, together under the name Lister Brothers, co-wrote and released the album Helium Ocean.


In the 16+ years since he moved to Nashville, Lister has become a Music City staple, known for his prolific songwriting and unequaled vocal range. He has worked with some of Nashville’s biggest names, from Alison Krauss to Amy Grant, Meghan Trainor, and Chely Wright.


Since signing with Big Yellow Dog in 2019, Lister has had songs placed with T-Mobile, Dignity Health, the Netflix movie 2 Hearts, the promo for the season finale of Modern Family, and more, and has released four EPs: “Sign Language” - 2019, “Cool Cool” (side project with Bergie) - 2020, “Forest for the Trees” - 2020, and “Happy Holidays, Everyone” EP - 2020. His most recent release is the full-length LP version of “Happy Holidays, Everyone,” featuring ten original holiday jazz songs.
