Lady Lazarus is the solo project of Melissa Ann Sweat, a singer-songwriter, artist, and creative writer from San Jose, Calif. currently living in Austin, TX.
Since her first release, Mantic in 2011, Lady Lazarus has received significant attention for her singular brand of spirited and enchanting, “dream folk-pop” composed for mainly voice and keyboard/piano. In 2013, while living in Los Angeles, Lady Lazarus self-released her second album All My Love In Half Light to wide acclaim, including an LA Weekly feature, a 7.8 album review from Pitchfork, NPR music video premiere, and more. A highlight of the year was opening for Youth Lagoon on two nights—one at the historic El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.
Lady Lazarus released her latest album, Miracles, on March 3, 2015 on her new label, Queen’s Ransom. The album received praise from The New York Times, Consequence of Sound, Magnet Magazine, AltSounds, Diffuser, and many more.
