kristen-mayInTheNow Magazine’s Brett Tully recently conducted an interview with Flyleaf singer Kristen May and bassist Pat Seals. You can now watch the chat below.

Speaking about how it is different fronting Flyleaf as the replacement for the band’s former singer, Lacey Sturm, compared to being in her previous group, Vedera, Kristen said: “I guess if you think of it in [terms of me stepping someone who was loved by the fans], it could be a bit overwhelming, but my band toured just about as much as Flyleaf, so, really, I think….

So, really, if you just take it day by day, it wasn’t too different than being in my previous band. Now, there’s more kids at shows. Continue reading »

laceysturmbook_smallFormer Flyleaf singer Lacey Sturm, who has just released her memoir, “The Reason: How I Discovered a Life Worth Living”, through Baker Books, has been collaborating with outside writers on material for a possible solo album. She tells About.com Heavy Metal: “We’ve been writing. We’ve got over thirty songs that we’ve written with a couple of our friends that are really cool rock songs. We’re not really sure how it’s going to play out.

“I got to work with David Hodges, who used to be in Evanescence, on some songs. He’s written a ton of songs with a lot of female artists like Kelly Clarkson and Christina Perri. We’ve written some amazing songs, some of my favorite stuff that I’ve done.

“My favorite thing about music is that it tells a story. You can hear the message without having to understand the words. I love that so much.

In a new video clip promoting the book, Sturm explains why she decided to leave the band. She says: “We were on our second album when I got married. And the album was called “Memento Mori”. And ‘memento mori’ means remember you’re mortal, remember that you’ll die and remember that your life is short and precious and so are the lives of those around you.

“For two years, I toured with my husband and it was really amazing, and then after those two years, we ended up getting pregnant with my son. And I recognized that my priorities were gonna change even more and that message of ‘memento mori’ and remembering how short your life is was really weighing on my heart. Continue reading »
