Press and bio spiel:
Lady Lazarus (Savannah, Ga.) is the solo music project of Melissa Ann Sweat, a poet, writer, almost-journalist, almost-film student at Werner Herzog's Rogue School, and fine artist originally from San Jose, Calif. Melissa began her project in 2008 when she started teaching herself keyboard, and writing and recording songs in her San Francisco studio apartment. She has been an artist and writer nearly all her life and credits her fluidity in picking up songwriting to her long-time interest in writing poetry.

Shortly after Melissa began writing songs, she decided to pursue her creative interests as much as she could - she quit her job and took a train trip across the country (writing a novella in the process), then began working again part-time and writing and recording songs in her free time. Despite her very new foray into music, Lady Lazarus has been receiving some impressive local and national attention. Pitchfork recently review the Mantic track, "The Eye in the Eye of the Storm," writing "fans of shadowy dream-pop will be pleased to discover San Jose's Lady Lazarus... Her voice is lovely, and nothing is over-or undersold... [The music] makes this moment of uncanny stillness a shelter you want to stay inside. It's really slight, and more than ample."

This summer Lady Lazarus played Left Coast Live, a week long music festival in San Jose with Yo La Tengo headlining, and embarked on a small Western U.S. tour, the highlight of which was playing with A Hawk and a Hacksaw at The Process in Santa Fe. In mid-October, Melissa moved from her hometown of San Jose, Calif. to Savannah, Ga. where she is continuing to pursue her music, poetry, and fine art while exploring and being inspired by the region.
