Lisa featured on Altered States

Lisa sings an acoustic-punk rendition of The Damned's “Video Nasty” on "Altered States"





“Robin Danar has created something fresh and reflective of the moment."

–Nic Harcourt, Host of Morning Becomes Eclectic & Music Director of KCRW

In the rapidly shifting contemporary landscape, lines blur quickly between musical genres, between musical roles (music fans create their own re-mixes now), and between platforms for cutting edge music (a MySpace page or a television commercial may be where it’s at). The very idea of a "record" is nearly obsolete. Enter a new kind of artiste, a producer/musician/songwriter who assembles a visionary work from many fluid assorted parts. Harking back to more halcyon days in the music business, a time when the likes of Arif Mardin, Al Kooper, and Isaac Hayes made ground-breaking records, Robin Danar steps to the fore at a propitious moment. With ALTERED STATES, (Due out on Shanachie Entertainment March 18, 2008) Robin Danar’s debut recording as an artist, he is a true auteur, shaping a soundtrack for some unmade film out of disparate and surprising elements created in dozens of time/space modules-a distinctive group of highly talented artists both known and emerging, a set of mostly well-known songs radically re-imagined, and evocative arrangements and production. The cutting edge artists - Rachael Yamagata, Pete Yorn, Inara George (The Bird And The Bee), Paul Buchanan (The Blue Nile) and others - are asked to go far outside of their normal genre as they enter Robin’s world and his re-interpretation of much loved songs. Lisa Loeb sings on an acoustic-punk rendition of The Damned's “Video Nasty” for instance, while Pete Yorn collaborates with Kinky in the reconstruction of Bill Withers’ "Use Me."

DUNCAN SHEIK This New York-based singer-songwriter did his undergrad at Brown, while he was there playing music with Lisa Loeb and the soft-spoken indie-folk cats in Ida. Like Loeb, who rocketed from college-coffeehouse renown to Top 40 stardom in 1994 astride her smash

Josh Joplin to play with Lisa in Washington.
Posted by: Lightning on Sunday, October 09, 2005 - 03:47 PM
Other Singers Josh Joplin (who Ironically has a song called Stay) will play in Washington with Lisa on the 19th

I recommend you check out some songs from Josh at http://www.joshjoplin.com/ especially his song stay which I personal like

JOSH JOPLIN - Artemis Records

Josh Joplin's bent for story telling (political and otherwise) between songs may be the only reminder left, that still sharply draws on the early influence of his hero Phil Ochs. His songs and performances however give way to the more obvious comparisons with the young infectious pop anger of "Armed Forces" era Elvis Costello, and a voice that easily recalls REM's "Radio Free Europe".


Note: His song stay is avalible in the downloads section under songs other or by going here ---> http://www.timewarped.com/lisaloeb/modules.php?op=modload&name=Downloads&file=index&req=getit&lid=154

Pop charts behind him, Duncan Sheik is free to be himself

Other Singers Pop charts behind him, Duncan Sheik is free to be himself
He'll play songs from his unreleased album at The Ark this week
Sunday, July 31, 2005
News Special Writer
The way Duncan Sheik figures it, he got his hits out of the way early in his career. Now he can focus on making music on his own schedule and according to his own ideas about how it should sound.

Sheik, who is shopping his just-completed album, "White Limousine,'' to a small handful of labels, said the new record, which he recorded on his own in his home studio, is a conscious effort not to cater to the whims of label executives and radio programmers.

"The thing I would say is that this is the first time I've been able to make a record where I wasn't worried about what a corporation would have to say about it,'' Sheik said during a phone interview from his loft in New York City's TriBeCa neighborhood. "There wasn't a sense of, 'What songs are we going to be able to get on the radio?' That wasn't a concern this time around.''

Lisa's Former classmate making it work.
Posted by: admin on Saturday, July 09, 2005 - 11:31 AM
Other Singers Classical training gives rocker a different sound
Elsa Knox Butler

If you listen to Andrew DuBrock's flavor of rock 'n' roll with patience and attention, you'll be rewarded as its sophistication becomes apparent.
DuBrock and the musicians who play backup on his self-titled debut album have a depth of knowledge, which you hear in the music's refined chord structures and complex harmonies. Each track on the record sounds different. A hard-rocking song is followed by a toned-down jazz-influenced song, followed by something with a salsa flavor or maybe a country tune, which keeps the listening experience fresh.

notes from Lisa: Ida, Indie Band, Creators, Heart Like a River
Posted by: Lightning on Sunday, April 24, 2005 - 03:24 PM
Other Singers April 19, 2005
Ida, Indie Band, Creators, Heart Like a River
It's not every band that can sustain a decade-long career on some of the most influential independent labels, go through countless lineup changes, and continue to improve upon their past work by creating gorgeous, heartbreaking music of the highest order. Then again, it's not every band that can namecheck Kelis, Prince and The Carter Family onstage, then stun an audience into silence with its mesmerizing violin and piano creations before rocking out. But Ida have always stood out for their beauty and simplicity, keying in on the voices of principal players Elizabeth Mitchell and Dan Littleton, and slowly growing with each album to include bass player Karla Schickele, and now, drummer Ruth Keating and violinist Jean Cook. Each step has led to a fuller sound, yet has retained the tender simplicity of their earliest work.
Their latest album, Heart Like a River (Polyvinyl), quietly simmers, and may take a few listens before its true genius reveals itself. But once it does, watch out - you may not be able to stop listening for days. Heart Like a River is the kind of album where you can find a new sound, new idea, and new favorite song upon each listen. It's an album where words like "*****" and "miracle" coexist, as do varying tempos, styles and influences, creating a record that could be given as a gift to one you love or to commune with in the aftermath of a relationship, or simply to get lost in its melodies for days on end.
Ida have always been masters of the breakup song, finding ways to make heartbreak into a work of art, and nowhere is that more evident than on the first track, "Laurel Blues". In the last few years, Ida has put out two children's albums, You Are My Flower and You Are My Sunshine, and have been entertaining a new generation of toddlers with their old-fashioned melodies, while Littleton and Mitchell, a former teacher at Roosevelt Island Day Nursery, raise their daughter, Storey. For older girls, Schickele has become one of the major forces behind this summer's Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, which leapfrogs off the success of Portland's pioneering program to teach girls about everything from songwriting to sound engineering to self defense.
Heart Like a River manages to build on and surpass their past masterpieces, melding the best they have to offer in terms of harmony, lyrical lushness and honest sentiment, to offer lines that make you want to be in love just to play these songs to your beloved. When Liz Mitchell sings a line like "You still fill me up with stars," it's enough to make one want to weep from the beauty of its delivery and sentiment. Just home from a country-wide tour in several years, the band emailed Gothamist and shone a light on their creative process, the growth of the band, children's music and being a "New York" band.
What was working on Heart Like a River like after taking such a long break?
Daniel Littelton: We started getting together and singing, just acoustically, sitting in the kitchen, playing old and new songs. It felt great to sing together and to pull together all the new songs. We wanted to record things as we were learning them, before they settled into known, over rehearsed parts. It was important to us to get the raw versions of the songs recorded, before things got too comfortable. We had experience with recording songs that we had played live countless times, and we all wanted to try something different. We decided to do the record with Warren Defever and that we should do the bulk of it at home. It was really exciting to do so much recording and all of the mixing at our own studio. That pretty much changed the process at a fundamental level- no one was freaking out (too much) about the clock, everyone was working at their own pace. It facilitated a good amount of freedom to experiment and follow through on spontaneous impulses. We don
