Biography

Sixpence None The Richer's odd name comes from a line in a C.S. Lewis book called Mere Christianity which featured the ideals of the band's two central figures Leigh Nash and Matt Slocum as a Christian rock band. They originally met in the early 1990s while attending the same church in New Braunfels, Texas and Slocum - who was playing with another Christian rock band Love Coma - suggested they work on some demos together. Slocum then quit Love Coma to form Sixpence None The Richer with Nash plus Tess Wiley (guitar), Joel Bailey (bass) and Dale Baker (drums), releasing their first album The Fatherless & The Widow in 1993. It was their self-titled third album in 1997, however, which catapulted them to international stardom on the back of their breakthrough hit single Kiss Me, written by Slocum and featured in the movie She's All Right and the TV series Dawson's Creek. The group went on to have a hit with a cover of The La's There She Goes but delays to next album Divine Discontent halted the momentum and they split in 2004. Slocum formed a new band, Astronaut Pushers and Nash launched a solo career. However, the band reunited in 2007 with the EP My Dear Machine, followed by a Christmas album The Dawn Of Grace. In 2011 they were working on a new album, Strange Conversation.
