Lady Lazarus is Melissa Ann Sweat, a self-taught musician from California currently based in Savannah. Sweat has only been playing the keyboard for a few years. But she used her passion and talents as a writer and poet and became Lady Lazarus. Soon after, she began recording songs and playing live gigs. Her debut album, Mantic, was released earlier this year.
With music that’s raw, layered and beautiful, Lady Lazarus has proved she’s a complex musician with a lot to give. After all, no simple human being would ever choose a stage name from a Sylvia Plath poem.
