she hung out with friends in clubs that played R'n'B and various kinds of music. Still, she was on for acting, not singing.
Over the years she didn't realize how close she was to the world of music. Entering St. Joan of Arc School before engaging at St. John Fisher school first, she wrote songs for her GCSEs. Her musical talent was further sharpened when she admitted herself to South London's BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, taking drama courses for two straight years. She left the school in summer 2005, getting down the street for the real 'drama'.

One thousand copies were distributed and promoted through a short tour which venues includes the prestigious Glastonbury. Next thing Nash knew was going professional. She was signed to Fiction Records and with better distribution, 'Foundation' waltzed its way to the top of U.K. Singles Charts at #2, causing her label to issue her debut album 'Made of Bricks' few weeks earlier to August 6, 2007. The album performed well on the U.K. Albums chart by peaking at #1. Then, tracks called 'Mouthwash' and 'Pumpkin Soup' were pulled
