A young girl discovers her father’s old comic book collection in a dark New York basement and quickly becomes enraptured. The stories and characters helped turn September Mourning band leader and creative driving force, Emily Lazar, into a life-long artist across several mediums – including ballet, story-telling, visual art, and music. Lazar has combined those various talents into graphic-novel-come-to-life through her band of Reapers – September Mourning.
Guitarist Rich Juzwick explains how the band came together in it’s current from: “The music scene in Los Angeles, although large, is still the equivalent of social circles in high school. You have your circle of friends – but they know other people that know still more people and eventually you’ll run into each other. I met Kyle first, back in 2010 when I was in Gemini Syndrome. He grew up in Chicago with Aaron (Gemini Syndrome singer) and we met when that band started. Emily and I met through mutual friends a few years later. When I decided to leave Gemini Syndrome, she approached me about helping her with September Mourning. We met Pat a few years ago while on tour in Pittsburgh, as his band opened for September Mourning a few times. We spoke after those shows, and through that connection he decided to relocate to Los Angeles and became part of the Reapers”.
