Former FLYLEAF vocalist Lacey Sturm has released a new video for her latest solo single, “Impossible”. The clip, which was filmed on February 4 at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California, is a mixture of commentary on “Impossible” and live performance.
“Impossible” is taken from Lacey’s debut solo album, “Life Screams”, which was released on February 12 via Followspot Records with The Fuel Music distribution.
Writing alone, as well as with husband/guitarist Josh Sturm, SKILLET’s Korey Cooper and Grammy Award-winning writer and producer David Hodges, Lacey created a record that is the sonic successor to FLYLEAF’s celebrated self-titled debut (which spent a staggering 133 weeks on The Billboard 200 chart).
Sturm in 2014 opened up about some of the reasons why she quit FLYLEAF in the fall of 2012, shortly before the release of the band’s third album, “New Horizons”. Speaking in a video to promote her memoir, Sturm said that several events, including getting married, having a baby and enduring the death of the band’s sound engineer Rich Caldwell changed her priorities.
Sturm explained: “The one that hit the hardest was the death of our sound engineer. We did one last show with FLYLEAF as a benefit for his wife Katy and their son Kirby. And it was really hard to do a show without him, and it was really hard to think it could be our last show. So I remember looking at my son after Rich had passed and just wondering to myself, if this was the last year I had with my son, how would I spend it?”
Sturm added: “It was really amazing to recognize this season changing in my life and the freedom that I was gonna be able to focus on my family. And I’m so thankful for that time. And although it was really hard, I’m thankful. And that’s the reason I stepped down from FLYLEAF.”
FLYLEAF recruited singer Kristen May as Sturm’s replacement and released its fourth album, “Between The Stars”, in September 2014.
