Lady Lazarus is the solo project of Melissa Ann Sweat, a singer-songwriter, artist, and creative writer from California, who received breakthrough press last year for her debut album, Mantic—including a 7.8 review from Pitchfork, and praise from Stereogum, One Thirty BPM, PopMatters, the Journal of Music, and more.
Taken from the Sylvia Plath poem of the same name, Lady Lazarus began in 2008 when Melissa started teaching herself keyboard, and writing and recording songs while living in San Francisco. Inspired by a cross-country train trip, she moved to Savannah, GA in the fall of 2010 and toured along the East Coast and Southeast in support of her self-released debut. Melissa has now moved back to her native northern California and is currently working on creative projects.
