“Fans of shadowy dream-pop will be pleased to discover
's Lady Lazarus … Her voice is lovely...” – Brian Howe, Pitchfork San Jose
Sweat began Lady Lazarus in 2008 when she started teaching herself keyboard, and writing and recording songs in her
studio apartment. She had 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. San Francisco
Despite music being a new foray for Sweat, Lady Lazarus has received some impressive early local and national attention with a favorable Pitchfork track review of “The Eye In The Eye of The Storm” (LINK) and an intimate and charming performance for the expertly filmed One Night Music series (LINK).
The Lady Lazarus album Mantic will receive a national release on
January 18th, 2011 via the artist’s own Apartment Life Records and Sweat’s poetry will appear in December issues of Outlet (www.outlet-mag.com) and The Broken City (www.thebrokencitymag.com). Lady Lazarus will also be playing regional shows around the East coast in support of Mantic throughout the winter. See below for dates.
Lady Lazarus is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
