Check out this announcement from Fireflight that was posted just a few moments ago at FireflightRock.com. Original drummer Phee Shorb has stepped out of the band after 9 years. The band also announces his replacement, Adam McMillion, who was previously in the band Search The City...

As many of you may know, Fireflight has been together as a band for 11 years now. We have played countless shows together, toured together, laughed together, cried together, and have had many accomplishments together. But, today we have some bittersweet news for all of our amazing fans. Our drummer and brother of 9 years, Philip “Phee” Shorb is leaving the band to follow another ministry path. While we are sad to see Phee leave, we understand that God’s calling on ones life, and changes are sometimes difficult. We also know that these things are necessary for us to grow personally and in ministry. This is what Phee wishes to convey…

“I want to say thank you to all of the Fireflight fans for enriching my life with your love and support over the past 9 years. Please pray for me as I answer God's call to begin a new ministry as a Christian Speaker. It has been my highest honor to help make and perform music that blesses people with the hope and love of God. To Glenn, Wendy, Justin, and Dawn, I love you guys so much and will miss you terribly. God bless!”

We want to give a heartfelt thanks to Phee for all of his years of ministry and talent. We also wish him well in all of his pursuits and pray that all of you do the same.

With that being said, we are very excited to announce the newest addition to our Fireflight family! A fantastic young man by the name of Adam McMillion (yes… McMillion) will be joining us from behind the drum kit. Adam is an enthusiastic and talented musician with an even better spirit. We pray that all of you will embrace him with the same love and acceptance that you have shown the rest of us for so many years.

We are looking forward to seeing all of you out on the road real soon! Fireflight will be heading out this spring for “The Overcome Tour”. You can check out our posted dates to see if we will be on your area. We will also be heading back into the studio this fall to record our fourth studio album…so stay tuned for that!

We cannot express our excitement for the future of this band and ministry!

God Bless,
Dawn, Justin, Wendy, and Glenn
