The Soundtrack of Your Life: BYUtv’s original new TV series, The Song That Changed My Life
Everyone’s life has a personal soundtrack. BYUtv’s original new TV series, The Song That Changed My Life, tells the story behind an artist’s inspiration and reveals the song that changed the direction of their life.
On Monday, May 14 at 7:30pm MT/9:30pm ET (replays at 10:30 MT/12:30 a.m. ET), the newest episode of this new series features Texas-based Alternative Rock and Contemporary Christian Music band Sixpence None the Richer.
Named in honor of a passage from C.S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity, Sixpence None the Richer is most well-known for their 1998 hit single “Kiss Me”.
Founded by lead singer, Leigh Nash and guitarist/songwriter Matt Slocum, the band later found fame for their covers of the La’s “There She Goes” and Crowded House’s classic hit, “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
Following a long hiatus, Sixpence is scheduled to release a new album titled Lost in Translation in July 2012.
The Song That Changed My Life includes candid conversations, informal interviews, never-before-seen rehearsal footage and performance, offering an intimate view into an artist’s creative process and how that one pivotal piece of music inspires and continues to motivate their careers.
Future episodes will feature:

She released her latest album, In the Time of Gods, in April 2012. (Airdate: July 9.)
