Generation Letter has blossomed from a local Orlando, FL Rock & Roll Band with a heart to serve God into a group of seasoned musicians and songwriters who love to worship God and lead His people to know Him more fully.
Their humble beginnings date back to inspiration from Sovereign Grace Ministries Producer, Integrity Music Songwriter and Under Ground Grace Records President, Steve Cook who suggested the idea blending the talents and visions of front man George Romanacce with fellow songwriters and band members John Ripley, Alex Couch and Stephen Morgan to create a unique musical blend.
Generation Letter’s vision is to be a band that glorifies the Savior, offers the world biblically sound lyrics and delivers them with unmatched musical creativity. Not only is their vision to create and record great music that magnifies The Creator, but they want to freely share the joy of worshipping God with a biblically informed theology of worship to all who listen to their songs.

So many bands are playing and singing with all their might but in the end leave their audience wondering what they're really about. This isn't the case with Generation Letter. They clearly have something to say and they say it. They say it in their performance and they say it in their songs. It's bold and it's refreshing. These guys put on a serious (and fun) performance. I can't wait to see what they do next."
