GenerationBeautiful’s music combines heartfelt ballads (“Father”, “Freedom”) withharder hitting rock songs (“Everything”, “This Is Me”, and “Rowdy”). Thealbum was recorded live on stage in front of a high-energy audience, and itfaithfully captures the excitement of Generation Beautiful live.Generation Beautiful – Live was mixed by Focx, whose other production workconsists of projects such as Beautiful Creatures’ Deuce, Aerosmith’s recentremake of “Back in the Saddle” for NASCAR on ESPN, Cinder Road’s new album onEMI, and also has worked on the Katherine McPhee track “Home”.The multi-talented Focx has certainly met his musicalmatch with Goff, whose vocal style encompasses raw aggressive strength yetis soulful at the same time.
