Sixpence None the Richer
The Fatherless And The Widow



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 10 tracks: 40 minutes, 22 seconds
Street Date: 1994


This album is beautiful in its simplicity. It doesn't try to do anything new, exciting or complicated. This is music in its simplest form. The messages it conveys are simple yet profound. They are those little proverbs that don't really say anything you don't already know, but still need to be said and can sometimes open our minds to the most beautiful things that we sometimes miss in our daily hurry.

The Fatherless and the Widow was Sixpence None the Richer's first album and was not very well distributed when released. It was made in 1993 and sounds nothing like any of the music that was popular at the time which in a lot of ways is a major plus because it harkened back to a simpler kind of music that many had forgotten during a time when over-produced pop and rap were so popular. It is also notable that Matt Slocum was the only musician on this album, providing the backdrop for Leigh (Bingham) Nash's beautiful vocals which were a lot deeper and mellower at the time, which actually suits a more laid back album like this. It has a very under-produced sound, which really helps more than holds back the record. Overall, it's a very wonderful album by a band that showed a lot of potential right from their humble beginnings.
