Last month Lacey Sturm announced her return to music as a solo artist, today she has released the first single.
It goes by the name 'Impossible' and Lacey made the following statement about the song a few days ago on her Facebook page.
Years ago I used to tell people from stage, "Everyone dies, we just don't know when or where or how. You shouldn't be shocked that people die, you should surprised that you're still alive." I said it in a bold way. It was with a hint of exhaustion, because I was tired of people taking their lives for granted, not realizing life is a gift. But then my friend Rich died in a car accident, I was shocked. When the time came to say this part in the 1st show I played after his death, there was no boldness or exhaustion. I trembled when I said it. I preached it to myself. In that moment, I knew that valuing my life, like I preached to others, meant I needed to go home and figure out how to love my growing family. Four years and many miracles later, we have written songs with our friends in their houses and in our living room and basement, and we have been learning a lot about love and not taking life for granted. We've learned that if we have the miracle of breath in our lungs and a voice in our heart, then we should use it for love. I feel like I'm learning to be able to make music, share some of it with others who want to hear, and still not let mere music making define me. I'm a wife to an amazing gift of a husband. My boys are two amazing gifts to the world, and I get to be their mom. I still have a fire in me to be a voice of love to people who feel unloved. Being able to find balance and courage to pursue being all these things has been an amazing miracle to me. I didn't think it was possible to do them simultaneously. But I'm watching it unfold with joy and peace that I didn't realize was possible. For me, Today is the beginning of new ways to Live The Impossible, and I have so much faith, hope and love in my soul. I want to hear what miracles you have seen, especially if you have seen them come out of tragedy. And I want to know how you are #livingtheimpossible . Write Living The Impossible on your arm, snap a pic for Instagram and share your story with me.. Use the #livingtheimpossible I can't wait to read them.
Needless to say that this single means a great deal to Lacey, let's hear it shall we!
