Sixpence None the Richer is a rock band with roots in New Braunfels, Texas, eventually settling in Nashville, Tennessee, named after a passage in C. S. Lewis' book Mere Christianity. The band is currently in the process of tracking a new EP, with tour dates planned throughout 2008. Guitarist/songwriter Matt Slocum met vocalist Leigh Nash at a church retreat in the early 1990s. 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.
