I recently had the pleasure to check out Flyleaf performing at Saint Andrew’s Hall in Detroit. I have been a Flyleaf fan for a few years, and personally i’m always a little concerned or apprehensive when the lead singer of a band is replaced. Lacy Strum stepped down as the lead singer of Flyleaf due to personal reasons in October 2012, shortly before the release of their third studio album entitled, ‘New Horizons”.
Kristen May has been hired on as the lead singer for Flyleaf, and beautifully so. She has a wonderful stage presence with lots of energy and incredibly strong vocals. Kristen is a fantastic fit for the band, and it was a pleasure seeing them on tour again. Flyleaf not disappoint with a lengthy 18 set song list. They are currently co-headlining the tour with Drowning Pool.
