Native Californian Melissa Ann Sweat now makes picturesque Savannah, Georgia her home and, it’s from these literary climes that she works on her wide-ranging artistic interests. The poet, writer and artist goes under the moniker of Lady Lazarus for her musical endeavors, which only really began early in 2008 when she started teaching herself to play music and began writing songs. Her debut release, Mantic drew accolades from Pitchfork and One Thirty BPM, while she’s been been on the road supporting the project. Lady Lazarus is currently working on material for a new album, as well as videos like the one we present you with today, “Took in My Diamond Heart”.
