Leigh Nash was born Leigh Bingham in New Braunfels, Texas. She grew up singing Patsy Cline songs in Texas dance halls. A 13-year-old Leigh met then 16-year-old Matt Slocum in 1989 at a youth summer camp. Leigh and Matt founded the band Sixpence None the Richer. In 1996, Leigh married PFR drummer Mark Nash.

Leigh is one of those people with an extremely distinctive voice. No one else sounds like her; she's got a light, airy, almost ethereal sound. She's also a thoughtful songwriter, although Matt seems to write most of the band's songs. She performed at Lilith Fair. Leigh recently recorded a solo for the soundtrack to Bounce, on which Sixpence also has a song.
