Biography

New Braunfels, Texas, United States (1993 – 2004, 2007 – present)

Sixpence None the Richer, often known as just “Sixpence”, is a / band with roots in New Braunfels, Texas, United States, eventually settling in Nashville, Tennessee. Named after a passage in C. S. Lewis’ theological book Mere Christianity, the group is best known for their critically acclaimed 1999 self-titled album, with ‘Sixpence None the Richer’ showing their strong influence from both melodic and music. Key members Matt Slocum, a guitarist and songwriter, first met Leigh Nash, a budding vocalist, at a church retreat in the early .

They recorded a demo (which now circulates as ‘The Original Demos’) and eventually an album, ‘The Fatherless and the Widow’ for R.E.X. Records in 1993. The record featured Chris Dodds (of Slocum’s band Love Coma) on drums. Shortly after the release of the album, Slocum left Love Coma to pursue Sixpence full time. The band added Tess Wiley (guitar), J.J. Plasencio (bass) and Dale Baker (drums) for 1995’s ‘This Beautiful Mess’. Both albums, with featured the group’s early explicit Christian contemporary music sound, were produced by Armand John Petri.

In 1997, the group signed to Steve Taylor’s Squint Entertainment and prepared for the release of a self-titled album, with their work slowly began garnering attention from a wider audience. In 1999, “Kiss Me” was released as a single, propelling Sixpence into the national spotlight. This song was also notably used in the romantic comedy film ‘She’s All That’.

    If you love songs from the original self-titled album "Sixpence None The Richer" (e.g. "Kiss Me" and "There She Goes"), try to get them better recognititon by getting rid of the idiocy that labels each track with the words "(LP Version)." Here's how you do it: visit the page of the album (http://www.last.fm/music/Sixpence+None+the+Richer/Sixpence+None+the+Richer) and follow my instructions there. That way, if someone visits the album page for the album that "Kiss Me" appeared on, they can at least click and hear samples, which they can't do due to the "(LP Version)" idiocy!

    I love this band, and Leigh Nash's incredible vocals..but their new album just doesn't cut it. I was quite disappointed. Their third, forth albums and the My dear Machine EP are perfect though!

    So sad the song, "Angels we have heard on high" never get the place #4,. But still the top 3 songs: "Kiss me", "There she goes" and "Don't dream is over" Brings JUSTICE :)
