Lady Lazarus is the solo project of Melissa Ann Sweat, a writer and artist from California, who started making music for the first time in 2008. What’s followed has been a wild and often wondrous trip.
Taken from the Sylvia Plath poem of the same name, Lady Lazarus began when Melissa started teaching herself keyboard, and writing and recording songs while living in San Francisco around March of ’08. About a year later she self-released her Home Recordings EP, and was motivated by the positive feedback and some press she received to continue making music. She played her first live shows in the summer of 2009, and began to play more and tour in the greater region.
