In 2003, Black Box Recorder released their third album, Passionoia; their first and only album for One Little Indian records, following the demise of Nude Records. In 2004, Black Box Recorder went on hiatus; not officially splitting, but with all 3 members deciding to pursue solo projects. In late 2005, Nixey announced she was working on a solo album, to be produced and co-written by James Banbury (a producer, programmer, writer and string arranger, as well as former member of The Auteurs). In mid-2006, two songs were made available on legal download services, entitled The Collector and Love and Exile. A third song was made available in September, entitled Strangelove, backed by remixes of "The Collector." Nixey's debut full-length solo album, entitled Sing, Memory, was released on February 12, 2007, following the release of her single, When I'm Here With You, in January 2007. A fourth and final single from the album, The Black Hit Of Space, which was a cover of the classic track by The Human League was released in July 2007 and saw the end of Nixey's album campaign. In November 2007, Nixey gave birth to her second child and took a well-deserved rest after a busy year of performing and promoting "Sing, Memory".
December 2007 saw the involvement of Nixey in a one-off project called The Black Arts which saw her reunited with former bandmates Haines and Moore, along with members of the band Art Brut for a special festive single entitled Christmas Number One. The track recalls the glam classics of Christmases-past with a tongue firmly planted in cheek. Read more on Last.fm.
