Integrity Music’s Franklin, TN-based worship duo All Sons & Daughters, composed of David Leonard and Leslie Jordan, will release their self-titled studio album May 6.
Produced by Paul Mabury, the resulting joyful, celebratory album includes not only new co-writes, but also songs previously recorded live and now reinterpreted in the studio, such as congregational favorites “Great Are You Lord” and “God With Us.” In these and all the original worship compositions for this eponymous release, Leslie and David continue to pursue authenticity and honesty in the music they make.
“We’ve allowed ourselves to be more creative, more reflective of who we are, while still writing songs for the church,” Leslie says of the self-titled album.
“You Will Remain” was the first song written for the record. Its melody led Leslie and David to the Gospel of John where Jesus refers to himself as ‘I AM.’ “We were struck by the truth of it,” Leslie says. “He didn’t say ‘I was’ or ‘I will be,’ but ‘I AM.’ And he wasn’t overstating anything… the constant, unfailing nature of God and his goodness. We never tire of leading this one.”
Continuing to lead their acclaimed new music alongside their repertoire of audience favorites, All Sons & Daughters will be the featured music guest on Moody Radio’s “One Cry Prayer Summit” on the National Day of Prayer, May 1. The performance will air live nationally during Moody’s two-hour evening broadcast.
Following the National Day of Prayer, the duo heads overseas for their first tour of Europe, hitting the UK for Big Church Day Out (May 25), Glasgow, Scotland (May 31) and Uppsala, Sweden (July 31) amidst several events in the US before starting the fall Neon Steeple tour with Crowder in October.
All Sons & Daughters continue to inspire audiences with their acoustic, organic folk aesthetic and lyrics that focus squarely on Jesus while embracing the tension of the Christian walk. Hailed by fans and critics alike, All Sons & Daughters have released three EPs and two full-length albums featuring songs such as “All The Poor and Powerless,” “Brokenness Aside,” “Great Are You Lord” and “Oh How I Need You.” Their most recent full-length project, a CD/DVD titled LIVE, garnered the duo its first Dove Award nominations with nods in the “Praise & Worship Album” and “Long Form Video” categories.
