The Leander sisters from Colorado have found time to come and gig in the UK in the past and now with their third project they deliver a well crafted album pitched somewhere between pop and rock but with a strong pop-country-esque sound to much of the music, particularly on the title track, comparable to mainstream acts like Rascall Flatts and Carrie Underwood. But eclecticism rules here as the tracks "Edge Of My Seat" and "Like No One Else" have more of an Ashlee Simpson or Kelly Clarkson peppy pop vibe. "Face The Son" is probably the strongest song of all, with flawless production, exceptional writing and moving lyrics. Overall, a big improvement on their earlier albums.

The Sonflowerz, led by British-American sisters Elissa and Becca Leander, are recognised for their captivating vocals and honest songwriting. For their third studio release, 'All Over The World', The Sonflowerz team up with producer and six-time Dove Award winner, Don Koch, to bring their original brand of modern worship music to the U.S. and abroad.
“My greatest joy for this next CD is that I am given the opportunity once again to write and sing about the impression God has made on my life,” Elissa says.
“These songs convey the gratitude of being loved by God and the desire to share that love with the world.”
This past August, Elissa and Becca won first place in the Vocal Duo competition at the 33rd Annual GMA Music in the Rockies event and later went on to win Best Over-All Vocal Group.
The Sonflowerz, both musicians and vocalists, have toured fulltime in the U.S. and U.K. for several years. Music industry veterans Brian Tankersley (Brooks & Dunn, NewSong), Brian White (Trace Atkins, Terri Clark), Dove Award-winning music arranger Russell Mauldin, and Dan Needham (Amy Grant, Chris Tomlin) are also contributing their talents to 'All Over The World', making it one of the most anticipated releases of the season.
