Lacey Sturm has earned legions of fans worldwide not only through her astoundingly emotive voice and chart-topping songwriting, but also for the sheer sincerity of the uplifting messages pervading her work. Whether fronting multi-million-selling hard rockers Flyleaf or now as a solo artist (not to mention as an author and speaker), she remains uncommonly true to herself while inspiring others to strive for better ways to live and love.
“I was just listening to the radio one day and I said to myself, “If I hear one more song telling people to kill themselves and go to hell, I’m going to have to put a record out!’” exclaims Lacey. “I just think it would be a good thing to have a voice in the mix of all the hopelessness that actually gives you a light at the end of the tunnel,” Lacey concludes. “A voice that’s still honest about the pain and struggle, but can also scream, ‘Hey, wake up and be alive because there’s hope!’”
Three years after amicably parting ways with Flyleaf, Lacey released her solo debut, Life Screams, in early 2016.
