After nearly an eight year run, Integrity folk duo All Sons & Daughters are calling it quits. Leslie Jordan and David Leonard made the announcement to fans over social media today, explaining how they came to the decision. Leslie and David took a break from their music last year and in the process, decided it was time for the band to end permanently. "After much prayer and consideration, we have decided that our season as a band has come to an end. 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 the new music. And while we could continue to write songs for the 'global church,' we feel that is not true to our original vision for the band."
"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 another's lives will not wane; it will just look different from the previous season."
All Sons and Daughters took the opportunity to thank their loyal fans for the support they've received throughout their musical career. "We want to say thank YOU for your unending support of the music and content we have created over the past 7+ years. We didn't 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!"
As a final farewell, Integrity Music will release a collection of All Sons and Daughters' songs, coming sometime in March.
