BackgroundEdit

All Sons & Daughters formed in 2009, signing with their label Integrity in October 2010.[1] They released three EPs, which were Brokenness Aside: EP No. 1, Prone To Wander: A Collection of Hymns EP and Reason To Sing: EP No. 2 that charted at No. 12 on Christian Albums chart and No. 5 on Heatseekers Albums chart,[7] before their first full-length studio album called Season One.[3] The album was released on March 13, 2012.[3] Their second album, Live, was released April 23, 2013.

David Alan Leonard, formerly a member of Jackson Waters, decided he wanted deeper and more authentic connection with a planted body of believers. Leslie Anne Jordan had grown up in worship leading settings since high school, where she wrestled with a calling into a full career of ministry. The two were equally devoted to recording music that was authentic and raw. They joined together to write songs that have been called "unpolished" due to the unedited nature of their music. Both Leslie and David wanted to remain connected to the church body they shared. They have continued to lead worship at their non-denominational church in Franklin, Tennessee, while also recording music and touring the country in concert.[8][9]
