notes from Lisa: Biography update
Posted by: admin on Tuesday, November 22, 2005 - 04:21 PM
News Lisa Anne Loeb (born 11 March 1968 in Bethesda, Maryland, United States) is a singer-songwriter.

Loeb, who is of Jewish faith, attended The Hockaday School in Dallas, Texas, one of the top rated private boarding schools in the United States. After graduating in 1986, she went to Brown University where she graduated in 1990 with a degree in comparative literature. She is the first and only unsigned artist to have a number one hit on the American charts, with the song Stay (I Missed You), featured on the soundtrack to the movie Reality Bites and later released on her debut album Tails. Her band Nine Stories is named after the J. D. Salinger collection.

Loeb was discovered by actor and friend Ethan Hawke, who lived in an apartment next to her in New York City. Before contributing Stay to Reality Bites, Loeb had developed a following from her acoustic performances in a New York City coffeehouse. Originally a duet act with another woman Elizabeth Mitchell, the albums Liz and Lisa and Liz and Lisa - Days Were Different were released independently, as was a solo project called The Purple Tape.

Though Stay was her break-through song, Loeb has successful radio hits with other songs from Tails including Do You Sleep?, Taffy and Waiting For Wednesday. The song Hurricane was contributed to the soundtrack for the film Twister. Tails was released in 1994 and achieved platinum status.

In 1997 a second album called Firecracker was released. Though critically praised it did not have the commercial success of Tails, though the single I Do was popular on radio and music television. At this point Lisa also dropped her support band Nine Stories. The single Let's Forget About It was also released.

Loeb did not return to studio recording until 2002's Cake and Pie. The album was a commercial failure and did not receive any major backing or promotion from her record label. She was eventually dropped, and she bought the rights to the masters of the songs from that album. It was re-released independently in late 2002 with the songs rearranged and some deletions/additions. New packaging was also featured, and it was retitled Hello Lisa. In 2003 a children's album, called Catch the Moon, was independently released.

Loeb also dabbles in the acting field. Her debut was in a guest appearance on the television show The Nanny in 1997. She played the voice of a newborn baby in The Rugrats Movie in 1998, and in 1999 was featured as a news reporter in the horror film House on Haunted Hill. 2004 will see the release of the film Serial Killing 4 Dummies which featured Loeb in her largest acting role yet. On January 16, 2004, her television show Dweezil & Lisa first aired on Food Network, in which she shared title billing with her then-boyfriend Dweezil Zappa.

She also was featured as the voice of Mary-Jane Watson in the MTV produced animated show Spider-Man.

In 2004, Loeb changed record labels once again, due to a lack of promotion from her former label Artemis Records. She was signed to the independent label Zoe/Rounder, and The Way It Really Is was released August 2004. The album is Loeb's fifth studio recorded album.

When not touring, or doing other promotional work, she resides in Los Angeles.

Lisa's Style
Lisa Loeb is easily recognised by her stylish eye-wear. A role-model for all glasses-wearing gals out there, she is almost always seen wearing her trademark, dark or tortoiseshell framed, sometimes cats-eye shaped spectacles.

In the past she has been known to wear designer clothes to red-carpet events including pieces by "Miss Marple" & "Petro Zillia".
anyways, someone asked lisa on her site what her prescription was. here was the question and her response :

Q: So, what's the prescription on those bad boys? Are we talking legally blind? Would you know a loved one past 5 feet? Does squinting really help myopics or is it just an endearing way to tell us sighted people you have no idea what we're showing you?

A: Squinting does help to a certain extent. Also, making a tiny triangle- 1mm x 1mm with your fingers and looking through it also helps (seriously). My prescription is -4.75 +0.50 x 8 in my right eye, and -5.75 + 0.50 x 24 in my left..

notes from Lisa: WHERE ARE THEY NOW? - LISA LOEB
Posted by: admin on Sunday, October 23, 2005 - 06:50 PM

I must admit to really only knowing of Lisa Loeb's musical exploits through her debut single of some years ago, "Stay (I Missed You)". And even then I remember it more for it's film clip than it's music. However, I do remember enough to recall it as a splendidly written modern ballad. After studying her career and musical output since then for this feature it's evident she hasn't lapsed in her songwriting craft. It also seems the Lisa Loeb story is another of those classic "let down by the record company" tales and the reasons I had largely forgotten about Lisa Loeb have more to do with that than any wrongdoing on her part. As with any such story, I'm sure there's more to it than we'll ever hear about.
So here's the Lisa Loeb story. Hopefully many will remember her music and those who don't will seek it out to complete the picture of Lisa Loeb.

Studying ballet, piano and music theory from an early age and having musical parents and siblings, Lisa Loeb was always destined to pursue music to some degree. She gave up the piano at the age of 14 when her brother, Benjamin Loeb, started proving himself as a virtuoso pianist. Instead she took up the guitar, an instrument she could retire to the relative privacy of her bedroom with. It was in her bedroom that she was able to further develop her songwriting craft, a development that was rapid and prolific for a Texan girl in her mid-teens.

Lisa's playing and performing took a new turn when she entered Brown University as a freshman. It was here she met Liz Mitchell, a fellow songsmith with whom she formed the acoustic duo Liz and Lisa. After successes recording and performing on and off campus Liz and Lisa moved to New York in the early Nineties. They both ended up pursuing different career paths, Liz moving into nursery school teaching but maintaining her love for music. She formed the indie band Ida a couple of years after their arrival in New York with her now husband Daniel Littleton who was a baker at the time.

Lisa Loeb played the Manhattan club circuit and recorded her now infamous "Purple Tape" which she sold at her shows. The tape was also shopped to countless record labels and Lisa began making all the right contacts. But it ultimately came down to the chance occurrence of that tape making it into the hands of Ethan Hawke who gave it to his friend Ben Stiller who had been working on what would become the Generation X film classic "Reality Bites". One song lifted from the "Purple Tape" was "Stay (I Missed You)" made it onto the Reality Bites soundtrack. Ethan Hawke directed a video for the song and before much longer Lisa Loeb took the distinction of being the first unsigned artist to ever have a Number One song on the U.S. charts.

Of course the majors cam a-knocking and Lisa signed with Geffen Records late in 1994. Her debut major label album, "Tails", was released in 1995 and the collection of superbly penned, emotive balllads and melancholy rockers earnt Loeb a Grammy nomination and a Gold record in the U.S.

She toured behind the release relentlessly before releasing her sophomore effort, "Firecracker", in 1997. Another Grammy nomination was received for the album and Loeb again cracked the Top 20 with the single "I Do". Her touring didn't slow down and she appeared on the bill of the inaugural Lilith Fair tour of the U.S. It was then that I heard the last of Lisa Loeb musically but she actually went on to play on each of the three subsequent Lilith Fair tours.

"Firecracker" ended up being Lisa's last album for Geffen and it wasn't until 2002 that her next release, "Cake & Pie", came, this time for A & M Records. In the time between her second and third albums Lisa pursued other interests including acting and she starred in her first feature film, "House On Haunted Hill", opposite our own Geoffrey Rush.

The signing to A & M proved fruitless and soon after the release of "Cake & Pie" Lisa signed to smaller independent label Artemis Records. With her creative control returned Lisa set about recording and releasing "Hello Lisa" for her new label. The album actually contains around half of the "Cake & Pie" album tracks plus a half dozen or so new compositions. Loeb and Artemis believed in the tracks lifted from "Cake & Pie" and wanted to give them another chance. Lisa was publicly displeased with A & M's handling of "Cake & Pie" and a letter to her fans offering an EP with only the newly recorded tracks rather than them having to buy the "Hello Lisa" album and doubling up on tracks she states:
"As you've probably noticed, there has been less promotion and touring for my album Cake And Pie than I'd like there to be. I am very proud of this album; I spent a long time working on it and am very happy with the results.......This is very unusual, but I am excited to announce the re-release of a new version of my album on a different record label. I've decided to make a change to another record label, Artemis Records. Artemis is more "artist oriented", meaning that they will support my music and my creative vision with full force (albeit less cash than a larger label). They are committed to giving my record more support and will actually be promoting my music to the radio stations- which will hopefully result in more touring and promotion."
Many of the new tracks were co-written with artists such as Lisa's long-time beau Dweezil Zappa and the producer and co-writer of the Alanis Morrisette mega-seller "Jagged Little Pill", Glen Ballard. Lisa also co-produced tracks on the album and the whole project reveals her immense musical ability.

Music is firmly back on Lisa Loeb's agenda but is now just one element within her very busy life. Other notable "jobs" she's held include guest appearances on The Chris Isaak Show, The Andy Dick Show and The Drew Carey Show. She also recorded voices for the animated series "Spiderman" which aired on MTV in the U.S. in 2002.

In 2003 Lisa joined forces again with Liz Mitchell to record "Catch The Moon", a collection of their recorded interpretations of children's songs and some other interesting picks including a version of Bob Dylan's "New Morning". The album also features original tracks penned by the duo. The CD has an accompanying book vividly illustrated by Liz Mitchell's mother.

January 2004 saw the debut of an interesting television project with Loeb and her partner Dweezil Zappa for the U.S. FoodNetwork channel. The pair travel the U.S. cooking, eating, recording and performing. The last episode in the series which aired just last week actually sees Lisa and Dweezil hook up with renowned luthier Bob Taylor, owner of Taylor Guitars in San Diego. Bob takes the pair into the Cleveland National Park where he shows them he can knock up a salmon dish as well as he can a fine acoustic guitar. Taylor has apparently been collaborating on a guitar for Lisa Loeb but we're yet to hear any more about that.
The show's website can be found HERE.

Lisa continues to play live whenever she gets the chance and some new recorded material is expected soon as one doubts Lisa Loeb is the sort of musician who could keep her heartfelt songwriting to herself for too long. Lisa still maintains a loyal and passionate fan base and I'm sure she'd be eager to give them something new sometime soon also.

We mentioned Lisa's brother Benjamin Loeb earlier and it's interesting to note how successful he too has become, but his success lies in the classical caper. It's actually Dr. Benjamin Loeb by virtue of the fact he has a Doctorate Of Musical Arts as well as a Masters In Accompanying. He is also studying a Graduate Performance In Conducting at the esteemed Peabody Conservatory. The accomplished accompanist, conductor and soloist also works frequently with the other two Loeb siblings. Philip Loeb is a composer and an audio engineer, working at the renowned Sound Lounge studios in New York. Their other sister, Debbie Loeb Kassner, is an accomplished actor and singer.

So that's the story of the Ivy League Graduate Lisa Loeb. A gifted songwriter, musician, singer and actor who may well have had a greater impact on the international scene had things fallen into place a little differently for her industry-wise a couple of albums in. She certainly has the material to place her amongst the most important female songsmiths of the past decade. Perhaps she will receive more international recognition in the future or retrospectively.
