For fans of the Texan band Flyleaf and Lacey's amazing vocals.



Lacey Nicole Mosley (born September 4, 1981) is the lead vocalist and main lyricist for Texan alternative rock band Flyleaf.

Lacey Mosley was born in Arlington, Texas, to a single mother of six. The family was poor, and when ends did not meet in one place, they had to move to another. Between moving and fights with her mother, what Lacey describes as "a war zone going on at home", she began dabbling in drugs.

“The first time I ever did drugs, I was ten years old. I kind of kept it a secret from people at school, and I always had a thought that it was wrong, you know. I kinda knew it was wrong. But, then, when I was thirteen, I found these other people that did drugs and I got even worse into it. It was like whatever I could do, I would do it, you know? I was trying to figure out who I was, and anything to separate me from my family, or to separate me from my situation at home, was awesome, was good to me.”

Lacey received a bass guitar at fourteen, and began playing Green Day and Nirvana songs. At sixteen, the fighting between Mosley and her mother became too intense and the police were forced to step in. She then moved to Gulfport, Mississippi to live with her grandparents. While going to school at Gulfport High School, she joined a band that was searching for a bass player. She continued on to sing for the band, writing lyrics, and playing guitar. Lacey decided to quit the band because of communication problems and the amount of negativity she felt coming from the music.

After living in poverty with her brother and continuing on to live with her wealthy grandparents, the sixteen-year-old began to feel dissatisfied with life.

“It's funny, 'cause I kind of had the two extremes - I was really poor, and then I went to live with my grandma, who was really rich. I remember thinking, 'Is this it? Is this all life has to offer? And if it is, I'm not satisfied with it.' And I don't believe what the world has to offer you is enough.”

After leaving her family and leaving drugs, Lacey experienced what she described as a "nervous breakdown," cutting off her hair and beginning to consider suicide. Her grandmother became distressed and urged Lacey to attend church.

She was married briefly before a divorce, and moved to Temple, Texas. There she met drummer James Culpepper. They soon teamed up with guitarists Jared Hartmann and Sameer Bhattacharya, whose own band had recently broken up. Bassist Pat Seals came into the picture, and their first time playing together is what Lacey describes as "something amazing". They proceeded to create the band Flyleaf, at first known as Passerby, which she has worked with to this day. Her brother, Phillip Mosley, who lives in Arlington, TX, is lead vocalist for a band called A Moment of Clarity.

In late May of 2008, Lacey was hospitalized with voice problems, and Flyleaf had to cancel the remaining six shows of their tour.
