Lisa Loeb (born March 11, 1968) is an American contemporary folk and rock singer-songwriter and musician, hailing from Dallas, Texas, U.S.
Raised in the heart of Dallas, Texas, with her three musically-orientated siblings, Lisa Loeb’s first excursion to the creative was playing the piano and guitar as a child. After subsequently hosting on the St. Marks School FM Station 88.5 KRSM, Loeb studied comparative literature at Brown University, where she formed the band Liz and Lisa alongside Elizabeth Mitchell. The duo released a pair of independent albums “Liz and Lisa” (1989) and “Days Were Different” (1990), before going separate ways after college. In 1990 the singer-songwriter formed the band Nine Stories and produced the cassette tape “Purple Tape” in 1992 featuring the tracks “Do You Sleep?”, “Snow Day”, and Loeb’s own “Stay (I Missed You)”.
Through her friendship with actor Ethan Hawke, Loeb’s single “Stay (I Missed You)” became the accompaniment to the credits of the Ben Stiller film “Reality Bites” in 1994. Subsequently, the single topped the Billboard 200, making Loeb the first unsigned artist to reached the No. 1 spot. With the success of the single Loeb released her full-length debut “Tails” in September 1995. Featuring the singles “Stay”, “Do You Sleep?”, and “Taffy”, the album earned positive reviews from critics, and was produced by Loeb’s partner Juan Patino.
The singer-songwriter’s sophomore release “Firecrackers” appeared in 1997, which despite earning less favourable reviews from the musical press, earned a Grammy-nomination for Best Engineered Non-Classical Album. Following the release Loeb toured alongside The Wallflowers, Chris Isaak, and Lilith Fair. “Cake and Pie”, the singer’s third, however her debut on A&M/Interscope, featured collaborations with Glen Ballard, however proved a commercial failure due to lack of promotion. Loeb subsequently contributed “Goodbye to Romance” to the Ozzy Osbourne tribute album, “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” to the Cher tribute album, and “Don’t Be Stupid” to the Shania Twain tribute album.
Loeb released her fourth full-length “Catch the Moon” in 2003, and following a move to the independent Zoe/Rounder Records, released “The Way It Really Is” in 2004. The latter album, despite disappointing sales, showcased a more developed singer with a more mature approach to songwriting. In 2008 Loeb took a greater diversion into children themed music with the album “Camp Lisa”, which is a 19-track album of camp songs including the memorable “Peanut Butter & Jelly”.
