“1000 generations has opened up worship’s expressive vocabulary. Throughout their album they remain true to a singular vision, a way of speaking to and about God that is as liberating as it is exhilarating. From its resplendent cover art to its delicate aural accents, their album is the best new album of the year.”
-Davin Seay, Worship Leader magazine
1000 creates music and art that moves people and encourages them to have life-changing experiences with God in an open, honest environment.
Led by the 25-year old husband and wife team of Steven and Amanda Potaczek, who are also staffed worship leaders at the Indianapolis Vineyard Community Church, the group normally travels as a four-piece. “We are psalmists, writing songs that are vulnerable, transparent prayers, which express the inexpressible for others,” says Steven. Stylistically, 1000 generations has a piano-driven, world-influenced pop sound often compared to that of Peter Gabriel, Michael W. Smith, and Caedmon’s Call.
Since the release their debut album in 2003, the group has been garnering quite a following among young to middle-aged adults. ChristianityToday.com selected them as one of the top ten independent bands of the year, stating that their music “has everything you could ever want in a worship album: original songwriting, a relatively unique sound, breathtaking musicianship, and a passion for encouraging others to walk closer with the Lord.”
It is said, “By opening up to others, you'll prompt people to open up with God.” (Mt. 5:16) By creating music and art that is expressively worshipful and honest, 1000 generations brings an atmosphere of excitement and passion for all present to have awesome experiences together and with God.
