Aly Spaltro, better known by her stage name Lady Lamb (formerly called Lady Lamb the Beekeeper) is an American singer-songwriter and musician.[1] Spaltro first began writing music in 2007 in Bart & Greg's DVD Explosion, the local video rental store in her hometown of Brunswick, Maine, United States. Spaltro worked the closing shift, and would experiment with and record music all night into the morning. These early years (2007-2010) had a huge effect on her sound stylistically, creating a basis for her future recordings.[2]

The first Lady Lamb recordings were home recordings distributed in handmade packages to the local Bullmoose Record Store in Brunswick, Maine. In 2010, Spaltro moved to Brooklyn, New York. In 2012, Spaltro met producer Nadim Issa and recorded her debut studio record, Ripely Pine at Let Em In Music in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It was released February 19, 2013 on Brooklyn's Ba Da Bing Records.

In 2014, Spaltro recorded and co-produced her sophomore studio album, After, with Nadim Issa at Let Em In Music. Late that same year, Spaltro signed with Mom + Pop Music and released After on March 3, 2015.[1]
