One of the pioneers of Contemporary Christian Music, Mylon Lefevre came from a well-known gospel singing family, The Singing Lefevres. At age 17 Mylon wrote his first hit "Without Him", a song that was recorded by Elvis Presley and others. After finishing a stint in the army, Mylon sang with the famous Southern gospel group The Stamps Quartet.
In the late 60's Mylon Lefevre began a career in rock music during which he rubbed shoulders and recorded with many top artists of the time. He also became heavily involved with drugs.
Drug rehab helped Mylon clean up and in 1980 he recommitted his life to Jesus Christ and began a new career as a Christian rock artist. He and his band were honored in 1987 with Dove and Grammy awards for the Crack the Sky album.
