Lyon Apprentice Teach Us to Persevere with ‘Alice’ [Stream]

April 5, 2016 Comments Off on Lyon Apprentice Teach Us to Persevere with ‘Alice’ [Stream]

Lyon Apprentice are back with “Alice”, their latest release since their 2014 EP Be Honest, Be Wild, Be Free. The song is percussive and guitar heavy, but also harkens back to the band’s folky roots by incorporating strong harmonies and a thoughtful narrative. Based on Alice, a 92 year-old patient Adam worked with, the story meditates on losing a loved one and the power of perseverance. In Adam’s own words: “She often told stories of her late husband’s experiences in WWII as an RAF Lancaster bomber pilot and how he died of cancer five years after the war ended, leaving her with four children. Reflecting on her marriage, she once told me ‘when I feel this way, I learn to walk on’ and the line stuck with me. Perseverance is a quality I admire and my conversations with Alice always left me humbled, grateful, and inspired.”
