Music[edit]

Nocturne[edit]

Main article: Nocturne (band)

Lacey was the singer, writer, and founding member of industrial rock band Nocturne. Nocturne began in the late 90s out of Dallas, Texas. Nocturne toured the country multiple times with bands such as Mushroomhead, Dope, Pigface, Thrill Kill Kult, Genitorturers and King Diamond. (Nocturne also did several "one off" shows with Ministry.) The band also had support from rock radio stations, won several awards, and Lacey was even voted "Female Vocalist of the Year" twice by local Clearchannel rock radio station listeners.[1] Nocturne signed a record deal with Triple X Records and released their debut album "Twilight" in 1999. The band then signed to Invisible Records/Underground Inc. (the label run by Martin Atkins of Pigface fame), and later released the albums "Paradise Wasted" (in 2002) and "Guide To Extinction" (in 2005).

In 2008, Nocturne broke up, due to the band members becoming involved in other projects. In 2007, on the Rock of Love reunion show, they performed their single "Shallow" from their album Guide to Extinction. They have also done a few shows in Southern California, but have not toured since the break.

Lords of Acid[edit]

Main article: Lords of Acid

Prior to HALO, Lacey joined Lords of Acid as their new front woman in 2010. Lords of Acid is a band that has been critically acclaimed within the electronic music and dance music communities. They have sold over 2.5 million albums over the course of their career. Lacey was asked to join the band for their first tour in eight years, taking over for former member Deborah Ostrega. Joined by Thrill Kill Kult on the "Sextreme Ball Tour", Lords of Acid, with new front woman Lacey, hit almost every major market in the country and consisted mostly of sold-out shows. Lacey parted ways with Lords of Acid in 2011 and began working on her own project, HALO.

Pigface[edit]

Main article: Pigface

Lacey also was a guest vocalist for the band Pigface, the industrial "super group" that was formed by Martin Atkins. Pigface has a revolving door of members. Along with major icons such as Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails, Danny Carey from Tool, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ogre from Skinny Puppy, Paul Barker from Ministry, Wayne Static from Static X, and many others, Lacey also was an integral part of Pigface. She sang and toured with Pigface on two U.S. tours (the "United" tour in 2003, and the "Free For All" tour in 2005). Lacey also sang on the Pigface album, "Easy Listening".

Reality television[edit]

Rock of Love with Bret Michaels[edit]

Lacey Conner was one of the primary cast members of Vh1's hit show Rock of Love'.

Lacey was brought back to the show in 2008, where she made a cameo appearance in the third episode of Rock of Love 2 . She was brought back again in 2009 for the third episode of Rock of Love Bus.

Charm School with Sharon Osbourne[edit]

After "Rock of Love", Lacey was cast as a primary character on Vh1's hit show "Charm School" with Sharon Osbourne, which also did very well in the ratings. Again, Lacey played the villain, and lasted to the very end of the season (appearing on every episode except for the very last one).

I Love Money, Season 3[edit]

Main article: I Love Money

Lacey was selected and participated as a contestant on VH1's I Love Money 3. Lacey was once again, a primary character on the show. The show was set to air in January 2010, but was cancelled by VH1 due to fellow cast member Ryan Jenkins' involvement in the murder of Jasmine Fiore.

Spokesperson[edit]

In early January 2009, Lacey became a spokesmodel for Dean Guitars, and hosted a webcast live from NAMM (the National Association of Music Merchandisers).[2]
