In 2004, Michelle Branch took a break from her successful solo career to team with friend and touring backup singer Jessica Harp in a new project called the Wreckers. Previous to the Branch collaboration, Harp had been working as a singer/songwriter in Nashville, and those country music elements mixed with Branch's pop sensibilities to inform the Wreckers' rootsy, harmony-rich sound. The duo debuted in autumn 2004, performing "Good Kind" on the WB teen drama One Tree Hill. "Good Kind" then appeared on the show's official soundtrack -- issued in January 2005 -- as the Wreckers prepared to release their full-length debut. Its first single, "Leave the Pieces," hit country radio before the album, Stand Still, Look Pretty, appeared in March 2006 on Maverick and reached number 14 on the album charts. The concert album Way Back Home: Live from New York City followed in 2007. ~ Johnny Loftus, Rovi
