Amos Bell is a musical prodigy, possessing a once-in-a-generation talent for piano. With little to no formal training, he can play anything from Rachmaninoff to Ravel purely by ear, and play it flawlessly, with an emotive expression that defies belief. This talent takes him from his home in Chicago’s South Side to Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, and introduces him to Lyric Walker, who immediately takes up residence in his heart and challenges his worldview.
Lyric Walker is a songwriter. It’s her one true passion. Too bad her restrictive but well-meaning parents don’t see songwriting as a legitimate career choice for a young woman of Lyric’s elite pedigree. To appease them and still pursue music, she attends Eastman School of Music for opera, for which she has extreme talent but little passion.
Amos and Lyric find their way into adulthood, and together they face the ultimate challenge when an unexpected loss forces Amos to rethink all he holds true. Fraught with emotion and underscored by the transformative power of music, Music & Lyric explores loss, the importance of music, the necessity and beauty of artistic expression, and how love can transcend and overcome all obstacles.
