Although Lorin Lemme faced the usual challenges of a professional musician trying to find his niche, he found his calling in the genre of Christian rock. His band, 1000 Generations, signed with Varietal Records (Vineyard Music, distributed by Warner Brothers), and recently finished their August 4 national release, “Turn Off The Lesser Lights” in Los Angeles, where they mixed tracks with David Bianco, who has produced albums for Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and AC/DC. In addition, the group tours extensively, playing shows at various festivals, college campuses, and churches. Prior to signing with Varietal, the band received numerous accolades for their independently released debut album. Worship Leader Magazine called it “the best new worship album of the year.” Christian Music Today named them one of “Ten Independent Artists You Should Know About.” Additionally, the band was awarded two Gospel Music Association Awards including the “Grand Prize Song of the Year” for their efforts.
