Leigh Nash: No Sixpence And Much Richer For It

NASHVILLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The band Sixpence None The Richer and its mid-1990s hit, “Kiss Me,” will live on forever in teen movies like She’s All That and Not Just Another Teen Movie – but the band itself has been broken up for two years.

Now, lead singer Leigh Nash is without Sixpence and feels richer for the experience.

The group broke up for a variety of reasons, including the fact that their version of “There She Goes” became a jingle for birth control pills.

As she puts it, “That was weird.”

Now Nash is finishing up a new solo album, Blue On Blue, that she says is influenced by the death of her band and the birth of her son, Henry, who is now 2.

In her words, “I tried out a lot of the songs I wrote on him when ‘Hush little baby, don’t you cry’ didn’t work.”

Blue On Blue hits stores Aug. 15.
