Luti-Kriss - Norma Jean

The band many of you may all know(Norma Jean), used to be a band called Luti-Kriss. Back in this time, the band had formed in 1998 just as a hobby. The original line-up for the band was Daniel Davison, Chris(Derr)Day, Mick Bailey, Joshua Scogin, Josh Swofford, and Scottie Henry.

Luti-Kriss formed in Atlanta Georgia, where there was deffinently a large music scene. The band's name came after they had nicknamed their vocalist(Josh Scogin) Luti-Kriss. Just as something stupid, they claim. Two weeks after the band had been together, some of the guys were invited to church by a friend. At the church that night, there was a youth event going on with food and games. The guys thought it would be cool, but they didn't expect that they would become saved that night, which they did. They then invited the rest of Luti-Kriss to church and they all became saved. The band then began to become more passionate about the band and began to make their lyrics and music faith based.

Luti-Kriss began playing shows with bands like Training for Utopia, P.O.D., Blindside, Project 86, and Living Sacrifice. The band's major music influences came from the legendary band Zao.

In 1999, the band released their first album. The Disc was a split between Luti-Kriss and Travial. This album was released on Pluto Records. Then, also through Pluto Records in 2000, they released an EP titled "5EP". Shortly after this, Luti-Kriss was signed to Solidstate Records and they prepared for the release of "Throwing Myself". The band states the meaning behind this as a peice of the bible in Isiah that says to throw yourself to the lord's altar.

After the release of the album, Luti-Kriss began thinking of a new name for the band for two reasons:
They never really liked their name(thought it was dumb) and they wanted something with more meaning. Luti-Kriss also became confusing when the incoming rapper Ludacris began. Because of these reasons, Luti-Kriss changed their name to Norma Jean, meaning patterns of God's Grace and Mercy. Norma Jean has now released some albums and is making a big impact in the music industry. But Luti-Kriss should never be forgotten.
