Three years after amicably parting ways with the Platinum-selling, Grammy-nominated Flyleaf, Lacey Sturm is independently releasing her highly anticipated solo debut, Life Screams, in early 2016 on FOLLOWSPOT Records with The Fuel Music distribution. The first single from this self-produced set of urgent, anthemic and lyrically-timely rock, “Impossible,” debuted exclusively on SiriusXM’s Octane . The single will be available on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon Nov. 6, and goes to rock radio for adds Nov. 9.
“Impossible” screams the return of the voice and songwriter who delivered rock anthems like “Again,” “All Around Me,” “I’m So Sick” and “Fully Alive” to the top of the retail and radio charts. The debut solo single from Lacey blasts out the optimistic chorus: “Every morning I see another miracle / I can’t believe I’m living the impossible / We are the sign and we are the wonder / Another day of living the impossible.”
“I was 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; 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!’”
Approaching her latest creative phase with newfound perspective and appreciation, Lacey adds, “I really started to value my relationships and the people around me. We started as a group of artists in our hometown of Pittsburgh and Life Screams was kind of an accident.”
