Since their stunning 2006 breakthrough debut album Sound of Melodies, progressive worship band LEELAND have become one of the most important voices in a new generation of worship music. Known for a passion-filled live experience, the band’s fifth release “Christ Be All Around Me LIVE” finally, literally captures that. “We’ve always wanted to do a live record, and we’ve finally reached the point where it makes sense.” says Jack Mooring, keyboardist and brother to Leeland Mooring the lead singer.
Simple passion for worship and experiencing the presence of God is fully realized on their latest project. Recorded in a farmhouse in Tennessee with 40-50 friends and family. “We just wanted to do what we’ve been doing at home with our family all of our lives. Just get in a room and worship!” said Leeland. “We’ve had these six new songs for a while now, and sent some demos to our friends so they could learn them and invited them out for two nights of worship. It was incredible! And I’m so glad we were able to capture it for the world to hear!”
