She began her musical pursuits by playing and practicing in the basement of the video rental store at which she was a clerk in her hometown of Brunswick, Maine. Bart & Greg’s DVD Explosion’s customers probably had no idea that the same clerk that would rent Transformers movies to them would develop into a major musical talent under the name of Lady Lamb the Beekeeper.
After working her 3-11 p.m. shift, Spaltro would venture down into the basement of Bart & Greg’s and let her lyrical thoughts pour into her music until morning broke. She taught herself to write music and sing, and her experimental and structureless music is characterized by a range of emotions, from anger and confusion to the simple and sheer bliss of love.
Anxious and hesitant to share her music with others, Spaltro gave herself the name “Lady Lamb the Beekeeper” and would arrange her CDs on the counters of Bart & Greg’s and the record store next door to give out as free samples to customers.
That’s how Lady Lamb the Beekeeper made herself to the top of the music scene in Portland and Brooklyn.
Spaltro is famous among her fans for her live shows. They can be characterized as beautifully chaotic, with melodies that seem to follow an internalized structure only known to Spaltro herself. She sings and plays the guitar, both electric and acoustic, and her lyrics and music offer insight into the world of a young women full of emotion and intense passion for living deeply.
