Lacey Sturm rose to fame in the early 2000's with the hard rock band, Flyleaf. Her distinctive voice and shiver-inducing screams helped propel Flyleaf to multi-platinum success with hard rock hits "I'm So Sick" and "All Around Me." With the band, she released three albums and an EP before amicably parting ways in 2012 to focus on her family.
Re-emerging as a solo artist, she contributed a number of guest appearances including the Underworld Soundtrack's "Heavy Prey", Skillet's "Breaking Free" and Breaking Benjamin's "Dear Agony." In 2014, she released her first book, a memoir titled The Reason: How I Discovered a Life Worth Living (Baker Books) A year after her book debuted, Sturm returned to her hard rock roots, recording her debut LP, Life Screams, with husband/guitarist Josh Sturm, Skillet's Korey Cooper, and ex-Evanescence member David Hodges. Her first single "Impossible" combined her unmistakable voice with chugging blasts of guitar that will be familiar to her Flyleaf fan base. "Life Screams" was released in February of 2016 and Lacey Sturm was recognized by Billboard as the "first solo woman to top hard rock album charts."
