Lana Del Rey got her start at 18, when she was still known as Lizzy Grant and moved from Lake Placid to New York City to write songs and perform in clubs. In 2008, under her given name, she produced and released the EP Kill Kill independently. In 2010, her first album β the doubly eponymous Lana Del Ray [sic] a.k.a. Lizzy Grant β came out and was quickly pulled from circulation, though it'll be reissued this summer.
