I’m constantly editing my playlists with new, old songs — especially ones from artists that I may have overlooked. Like most people, I’m aware of Sixpence None the Richer’s hit songs. But, I’ve never listened to any of their albums before. Starting at the beginning, I was surprised to find a consistent, pleasant sound for over a decade.

The Fatherless and the Widow (1994)

This album has a pure 90s vibe like it could be the soundtrack for any grainy TV show where a manic pixie dream girl plunges headfirst into a dreamy, hopeful adventure. I was actually surprised at how faith-based their lyrics were. They were categorized as a Christian band and were included at Christian events and bookstores. But, their best-known songs, like Kiss Me didn’t have strong religious themes.

  • Field of Flowers
  • Spotlight
  • Trust

This Beautiful Mess (1995)

For this album, the overall vibe is very soft. It’s good mood music for meditation or quiet study. I added a few songs as peaceful, pleasant background.

  • Bleeding
  • Disconnect

Sixpence None the Richer (1997)

This album has the songs that most people would recognize. I added the favorites and a few that I hadn’t heard before.

  • I Can’t Catch You
  • Kiss Me
  • Love
  • There She Goes
  • Puedo Escribir

Divine Discontent (2002)

I remember Breath Your Name and Don’t Dream It’s Over hitting the charts for a while. But, I was unfamiliar with the dreamy, easy-listening songs on this album.

  • Breathe Your Name
  • Don’t Dream It’s Over
  • Waiting on the Sun
  • Eyes Wide Open

Apparently, the group officially disbanded in 2004. But, they reunited in 2007 for some new work.

The Dawn of Grace (2008)

Apparently, they made a Christmas album and this is it. I don’t really do Christmas music, but I would listen to this one during the season.

Lost in Transition (2012)

This is the last album the group has made together. Like their other albums, the music is pleasant and emotional without disrupting my creative flow.

  • Radio
  • Should Not Be This Hard
  • Failure

More Creative Inspiration

After this, I’ve book-marked lead vocalist Leigh Nash as an artist I’ll listen to thoroughly.

I regularly post about what inspires me on my website, Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook accounts. It’s a slightly different experience on each platform. Head over to your favorite and give me a follow if you enjoyed this post.
