Leon and Powell: The Bio
Once upon a time in the city of Toronto, two young women kept meeting in recording studios while working on other artists'' projects. They put the band Sunday''s Children together and quickly became well known playing Toronto''s Queen Street West club scene. They released a self-titled EP and had two songs climb to the top on the College radio station charts. Just before their scheduled meeting with M.C.A. Records of Canada, Deborah and Sherrie were "Born Again" and the band split, with members going their separate ways to pursue solo careers.
Reuniting two years later, Deborah and Sherrie became licensed ministers, traveling and ministering in Word and music at various churches, leading worship at Ladies'' retreats, playing at concerts and youth rallies across Canada. They continued to write and record 5 more albums which they sold to support their ministry.
Leon and Powell come at their music from two different directions. Sherrie is a classically trained violinist who studied performance at The University of Toronto. She composes as well as plays the mandolin, viola, cello and piano. Deborah, a self-taught musician is a prolific songwriter whose passion is to take the ''in your face'' truths of God''s Word and craft songs that make you think of the power and soon return of our Lord Jesus. Her musical expression is one of a trumpet messenger, pointing out the correlation between the revelatory scriptures and the state of the church and the world today. Their desire is to reach the lost for Jesus Christ and through worship lead the body of Christ into intimacy with their Creator.
GREAT BIG GOD, their latest CD is a departure from their last album - FROM THE HEART, which focused on intimacy with God. This CD is charged with songs about the Lord’s soon return and His power and love towards us.
Their sound has been described as modern yet retro. Teaming up with guitarist Sean Spicer has brought an edge to their acoustic folk rock sound. Together they have hit the mark with an album that takes you on an emotional, spiritual journey from the beginning, through to Creation Groaneth. From the energetic contemporary praise of IN CLOUDS OF GLORY, to the intimate moving worship of THANK YOU LORD, GREAT BIG GOD will leave you breathless - in awe of a Great Big God.
