Cultivation Generation is a high-energy live compilation from young Vineyard worship leaders from the Northwest which comprise of: Stephen Lampert, David Linhart, Jesse Meyer, Anabeth Morgan, & The Neverclaim. Jeremiah Carlson of The Neverclaim pioneered weekend conferences for young adults in which the recording of this album was from one of those weekends in 2011 at the Boise Vineyard Church. This album is a follow-up to the first self-titled album recorded at the Cultivation Generation conference in Vancouver a year ago.
If you like the sounds of Hillsong United and Jesus Culture, you’ll find yourself at home with this live album.
Some songs that standout are:
My Soul Longs which engages the live congregation with high energy and even includes a banjo!
Love Has Come, Love Has Won is a catchy song layering guitars and synthesizers.
God Don’t Never Change creatively mixes different styles of music from Gospel to Rap to Rock.
The title track, My Foundation, has the Jesus Culture sound with the female lead sounding a bit like Kim Walker.
Bridegroom has an interesting mix of rock with a banjo playing.
Enthroned is a pop song with the traditional hymn chorus of Holy, Holy, Holy added in a couple of times.
The last two songs are useable worship songs that drive well: They That Wait and a cover of Robbie Seay Band’s upbeat Song of Hope, which is also the digital bonus track.
