Dear friends & family,
As you know, we took last year off the road to rest, pray and dream about what was next for All Sons & Daughters. We spent the first half of the year wrestling through the initial shock of being off the road after 7 years, celebrating Poets & Saints at the Grammyâs, and diving in to our individual dreams and plans at home. Each time we came together to talk about the future of All Sons & Daughters, we struggled to gain a clear picture. Since the beginning, our music was birthed from and written for our local church. While David is still involved with Journey church, last December Leslie and her husband Thomas felt led out of that community. With that as our reality, we were struggling to find the heartbeat for new music. And while we could continue to write songs for the âglobal church,â we feel that is not true to our original vision for the band.
So, after much prayer and consideration, we have decided that our season as a band has come to an end. This decision was not made in haste or out of any discontentment with one another. We still have the utmost respect for each other and will continue to champion one another into whatever the Lord calls us. Our involvement in music and in one anotherâs lives will not wane; it will just look different from the previous season.
We want to say thank YOU for your unending support of the music and content we have created over the past 7+ years. We didnât anticipate many of the opportunities we were given but just tried to walk in obedience through each open door. Many of those doors led us to your cities, neighborhoods, and churches and we are so grateful to you for welcoming us with open arms!
Lastly, in celebration of our season together, our friends at Integrity Music will be releasing a collection of AS&D songs, so be on the lookout for that in March.
We pray that God will continue His beautiful work in the church and we canât wait to see what the next season holds.

Poets & Saints, along with a companion book penned by our pastor Jamie George, curriculum and a study guide will take you on an epic journey into the lives and stories of a handful of Christ-followers God used to wake up the world. Last summer a group of us ventured to Europe to trace the lives of C.S. Lewis, John Newton, Saint Therese, Saint Francis, William Cowper, Saint Augustine, George MacDonald, and many more; mining for undiscovered gems, something God could use to connect these individuals to modern believers.Read More
Join us this fall as we share new songs from Poets & Saints.
We're also excited to have our friends Sandra McCracken & Jamie George out with us.
We are excited to announce more of our fall schedule and our newly envisioned Neighborhood Tour. We hope to bring a community together around the common "shared meal" of a Night of Worship.Read More
We are excited to announce our fall schedule and our newly envisioned Neighborhood Tour. We hope to bring a community together around the common "shared meal" of a Night of Worship. Rather than visit one BIG city, the plan is to visit 3 cities surrounding that region and encourage each community to invite other churches in their city to attend. The hope is to lean into relationships with one another; with people we see at the grocery store and who live on our streets. Let's connect face-to-face and see what happens!
On the last day, we will be holding a conference for those regional worship leaders, pastors & creative teams! It is our desire to serve you and to help you connect with each other. Sharing our stories, a meal, and creative time together will create stronger connections and stronger communities.
We will be announcing other areas in the coming weeks -- but our first stop is DALLAS REGION!
Dallas Area! We are making our first stop on the Neighborhood Tour in YOUR region. Check out the video to learn more about each night of worship and read below to learn more about the Neighborhood Tour Conference for worship leaders and creative teams! Hope to see you there!
