Flyleaf Biography - The Early Days:

Lacey Mosley and James Culpepper joined forces in 2000 after Lacey shared the music she had written in high school with the drummer. They recruited Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann shortly after the band they were in broke up. The final piece came in the form of Pat Seals in 2002. Originally, the band was known as Passerby. Due to legal aspects, they had to change their name. One short year after the band had all five members in place (2003), Flyleaf played at South by Southwest. Octone Records heard them and had them signed within a year.

Flyleaf - The Debut:

Once Octone Records got the paperwork finished, an EP called Flyleaf was released in October 2004. The full-length CD, also titled Flyleaf, released that one year later with Howard Benson at the helm as producer. The music was so well received that their single "I'm So Sick" was included in the first Rock Band video game and later, "Tina," from Memento Mori, made it to Guitar Hero 3.
