Who do you think of when you mention all-girl Christian groups? Perhaps you think of ZOEgirl, BarlowGirl, Point of Grace or Superchick (mostly girls). Get ready to add another name to your list: the British-American sister duo, The Sonflowerz. With the release of their fourth full-length album, By Faith, The Sonflowerz are positioning themselves to be welcomed by Christian music fans worldwide. Produced by six-time Dove award-winning songwriter, Don Koch, By Faith is an upbeat account of what happens when we are embraced by God and the praise that we give back in response to that embrace.
“Our time on this earth is truly all about him.” This attitude expressed by Elissa and Becca in the liner notes is heard and felt as you listen to each successive track. Every song has a unique bend towards that life statement and how it can be carried out in our lives. From the opening guitar riff of “You Captured Me” to “How Great You Are”, featuring guest vocalist Jared Anderson, to the thought-provoking final moments of “The Face of Jesus”, the listener is pointed directly to the sovereign God of the universe and the truth that things on this earth are truly all about him.
