We went to see Sixpence None the Richer last weekend. I made it a point to see this show because I’d heard they were very good but I didn’t know much about their music except the songs I’ve heard on the radio. I went away impressed. They offered up some beautiful melodies with intricate chord structures and great musicianship.
But everyone else I went with thought their music was depressing. This was probably due mainly to Leigh Nash’s *very* low key stage presence (some may say weak). Anyone who wasn’t into the music was pretty much out of the loop.
Most of their music is on the melancholy end of the spectrum, which may be why they only have 2 or 3 radio hits and probably limits their fan base to more artistic-minded listeners.
