Lake Lyon is an upcoming band of college students trying to bring the indie/alternative sub-culture into the south. The band began as an idea by lead-vocalist Austin Motlow. During Fall of 2013, Austin went on a life-changing trip to New Zealand and the Philippines where he ventured for six months. After returning to the states, he wanted to share what he had experienced overseas through his love of music. During his freshman year at the University of Alabama, Austin and two of his roommates started Lake Lyon in hopes of expressing the importance of living out passions and following dreams. The band now consists of five friends who had all previously played together in different bands during high school at venues all over their hometown, Birmingham, Alabama. This new group wants to spread their music in hopes of bringing new genres to the local music scene.
