M.Mylon LeFevre


Mylon LeFevre - 1960s

Mylon LeFevre (October 6, 1944-present)

Biography

Mylon LeFevre grew up performing with the LeFevres, a group managed by his parents, Urias and Eva Mae LeFevre.

He entered the United States Army at the age of 17. It was there that he wrote his first song, "Without Him." Some time later while still stationed at Fort Jackson, SC, Mylon hitchhiked to Memphis, TN to perform the song with his family at the National Quartet Convention. Elvis Presley heard the song and recorded it on his 1967 album, How Great Thou Art. As soon as Presley's album released, many other artists recorded the song as well. Mylon LeFevre has stated the first royalty check was in excess of $90,000. By this point, Mylon was a member of JD Sumner And The Stamps Quartet.

Soon after that, Mylon LeFevre turned his sights toward a different style of music. Mylon/We Believe was released in 1969 on the Cotillion label. This recording is considered to be the second Christian rock recording ever made, the first being Larry Norman’s Upon This Rock. The core members of Mylon’s band in 1969 became members of the Atlanta Rhythm Section in 1970.

During the 1970s, Mylon chased the dream of a secular rock music career, recording for Columbia Records. He ultimately hit bottom in 1979 and found redemption in Christ. After being delivered from drug addiction, he returned to perform Christian contemporary music in the 1980s and early 1990s with his group Broken Heart.

Mylon has focused on preaching and teaching more than singing in recent years. Mylon’s daughter, Summer, is married to Peter Furler, a former lead singer and drummer for the Newsboys.
