All Sons & Daughters
The Longing: EP No. 3



Artist Info: Discography
Album length: 6 tracks: 26 minutes, 53 seconds
Street Date: September 25, 2012

Perhaps it's inevitable with all the electronic and club music bouncing around the top 40 these days, but honest, organic, acoustic music is experiencing a bit of a comeback in the last few years. With Mumford and Sons, The Lumineers, The Head And The Heart and Of Monsters And Men packing clubs and reaching the top of the iTunes charts, it's apparent that there is still an audience for music that is a bit more homespun.

After releasing a well received album, Season One, this past spring, acoustic worship duo All Sons & Daughters returns with a six song EP that is a testament to the fact that a well crafted, honest, simple song will resonate much more that a pedestrian song with loads of production any day. Opening with the rollicking "Oh How I Need You," All Sons & Daughters amps up the energy Mumford And Sons style. With a banjo and tambourine accompaniment, the song feels like a worship hootenanny in a barn on a Saturday night.

The soulful "Rising Son" hits the sweet spot between uplifting gospel (in the vein of U2's "Walk On" or Ten Avenue North's "Grace") and the subtle beauty of Simon And Garfunkle's harmonious dueting. "Called Me Higher" features singer Leslie Jordan's plaintive vocals against a building tempo that acknowledges that "I could stay safe inside these cozy walls, but you have called me higher" and serves as encouragement for God's people to leave their suburban hideaways and engage the world around them as the Lord is calling us all to do. The title track, which rounds out the EP, expresses eloquently that "love is and always was the longing placed inside my heart to know you and be known by you" and is sung with intertwined voices against subtle acoustic instrumentation.

Worship music this raw and uncalculated deserves a wide audience, and with more than five releases in the past two years alone, it's clear that All Sons & Daughters is willing to put in the time to shape original, creative songs to the Creator.
