Jessica from Integrity Music gave me a heads up on All Sons and Daughters new album. I’m normally on top of these things but I started a new job and had a baby in the last few weeks. So, I’ve been a little distracted.
As you know, I really like All Sons and Daughters. They come across as comfortable singing from where they are in life. I find my heart connecting with their music pretty consistently.
Their latest album “Live” released on April 23, 2013 and it’s definitely one to get. You can buy the album on Amazon by clicking the image below.
Integrity bought the banner ad right at the top of the page and also gave me a link to the chord chart for “Great Are You Lord” and a free download of the single – “Great Are You Lord”. I’m writing about this song and album because it connects with my heart and draws me into God’s presence. I purchased the album from iTunes with no discount or incentive from Integrity Music. Just so you know……
If you like Jonathan and Melissa Helser then you probably know the extended versions of their songs are incredible. They typically go into the studio and invite God then see what happens. You can hear the experiences and journeys they’ve been through in these songs. Jonathan and Melissa are rooted in community that is in love with God in a major way. Their community is pouring their lives out to God and their worship recordings are fruit that has had a major impact on my life.
As musicians we love writing songs, but as worshipers our hearts ache for more. Our favorite part of writing songs is the way a song can become like a diving board to take us into the deeper waters. In the studio, we love the risk of leaving the record light on just a little longer and walking off the map of the written song and into the eternal moments.
In the fall of 2010, we went into “Threshing Floor Studio” with our great friend Elijah Mosely, as our producer and a group of amazing friends as our band. In the studio, we had two goals. The first was to create an album of twelve beautifully crafted songs. The second was to step off the edge of the written songs and capture a double-disc album of spontaneous moments. We titled the album of twelve songs “On the Shores,” because those songs were like standing on the edge of what happened in the studio. We titled the double disc album, “Endless Ocean, Bottomless Sea” because they are the moments that happened when we stepped off the shores and into the much more.
The songs of “On the Shores” truly became like a diving board to take us into the deep waters of “Endless Ocean, Bottomless Sea.” As you listen, may you be taken beyond the music and experience the One whose love truly is an endless ocean and a bottomless sea.
