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.

I love the song 'Blind', and of course 'You and Me': Wade has an incredibly adorable voice. Is Lifehouse a successful band in the US?

IF anyone actually did research, one would know that Bliss/Blyss (both spellings were used) became Lifehouse because when they went to COPYRIGHT the songs to the name, it was already taken by a European band. That and the "piss" comment are the truth. Ask the man yourself!

I love Lifehouse! I like the band Creed too. But anyways, I really like their old song "The Edge" that they performed when they were called Bliss, and I thought it was actually spelled Blyss. Anyways, I think that they are definitely an AWESOME band!!!
