Artistfacts for Lifehouse
Both Andrade's and Wade's parents were Christian missionaries. Andrade lived in Guatemala with his parents; Wade traveled to such foreign locales as Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and California.
These boys were originally named Bliss, but after a fan confused it with the word piss, they changed to Lifehouse. They are not named after Pete Townshend's infamous, abandoned rock opera, Lifehouse.
They gained their popularity by playing regularly with a church youth group called FKA (Formerly Known As) at the school of the Malibu Vineyard Church. They would also lead prayer services there.
Says Wade: "My music is spiritually based, but we don't want to be labeled as a 'Christian band.'"
Lifehouse has been compared to Pearl Jam and Creed, primarily because of Wade's low voice.
