“It is the living who give thanks to You, as I do today;
A father tells his sons about Your faithfulness.
The LORD will surely save me;
So we will play my songs on stringed instruments
All the days of our life at the house of the LORD.”
In December 2010, Jalon and Dennis Fonseca collaborated to write their first inspirational song for the Christmas season. The song was entitled, “There Is No Other God.” Subsequently, the father and son worked together on several other pieces into summer of 2011.
In the interim, Jalon concluded his service commitment to the US Navy and moved back to Massachusetts to more seriously pursue the song writing partnership with his father. All this time, they both felt that God was drawing them deeper and deeper into fulfilling a calling writing music in service to Him and His church.
After many prayers and petitions and stepping out in faith, the team formalized their partnership to pursue what they believed to be God’s plan for the future. Inspired by a suggestion from mother and wife Carol, the name, “A Father and a Son” was born, and by the end of the summer a legal entity was established and web site developed.
As we perceive it, our mission is first and foremost to offer worship to the Lord, and also to bring the body of Christ into His presence through music...sort of like some modern-day Levites. We feel this is an irrevocable calling and God is continually refining and adjusting the course on which He has us. We ourselves cannot claim to know the full extent of His desire!
One particular aspect we feel stirring in our spirit is the heart of God for Israel and His chosen people. As such, Messianic influence can be clearly heard in some of our songs.
