“Every Generation”, St Catherine’s Child Discusses in a new Song

326

St Catherine’s child releases a new song called ‘Every Generation’. The song was written by Ilana Zsigmond and was produced by Alec Brits and Ilana Zsigmond (The Cabin, Liverpool) and mastered by Alex Wharton (Abbey Road, London)

Every Generation is an exploration of the things we inherit. It borrows from the long-standing American folk tradition of exploring ourselves through our hometowns, through our families – through the choices and the music and the pain.

“I come from a long line of immigrants and wanderers. My father grew up in Liverpool and spent his youth there making music, grappling with his complicated relationship to the town and to our family, and eventually
leaving for America to raise his own.

Three years ago I moved back, two streets over from the recording studio where he met my mother, and hoped that singing songs in the same few bars where he cut his teeth would help me find the part of myself I’d never managed to find in my own hometown.

As my father battled with the cancer that would eventually take his life, I had the strange opportunity to get to know him through his home, and saw more of myself in his choices than I ever anticipated. Grieving him in the graveyard of his youth has taught me, more than anything else, that our lives are built into our bones, that we inherit the good and the bad, that we are all born this way.

Every generation, for better or worse, makes the same mistakes, but when I miss him, this town, this music, and everything he passed down to me in my blood, is the biggest comfort in the world”.
