Flyleaf

Flyleaf is an alternative rock band, formed in the Belton and Temple, Texas  regions in 2000. They performed around the United States in 2003 until releasing their debut album, Flyleaf, in 2005. The album went platinum after selling more than one million copies.  The band won an online poll on yahoo.com and was named Yahoo!’s Who’s Next band of the month in March 2006 and they were named MTV’s artist of the week on December 24, 2007.  Flyleaf released their sophomore album, Memento Mori on November 10, 2009.

All five members of the band are of the Christian faith.  This faith influences their music, but lead singer Lacey Mosley doesn’t necessarily believe that makes Flyleaf strictly a Christian band. “We all share the same faith. And so when we deal with the whole ‘Christian band thing,’ we kind of think about something P.O.D. says, like, ‘If you’re a Christian, it affects everything in your life. So if you’re a plumber, does that make you a Christian plumber?'” Mosley said. “I don’t know the answer. We’re a band, it’s part of who we are, so it comes out in our music, and it’s the fuel for what we do. And finding faith saved my life. So I’m not ashamed of it at all. And most of our album reflects that.”
