Lisa Loeb is a touring artist, author, and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling number-one hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the film Reality Bites. A trailblazing independent artist, Loeb was the first pop musician to have a number-one single while not signed to a recording contract. She followed that remarkable feat with the hit singles “Do You Sleep,” “I Do,” and “Let’s Forget about It,” and the albums Cake and Pie and No Fairy Tale. Her albums Tails and Firecracker were both certified Gold.
Loeb continues to craft irresistible pop songs for the twenty-first century, while designing Lisa Loeb Eyewear, writing children’s books, and supporting nonprofit causes. The Los Angeles–based mother of two is well known to parents and kids for her albums Catch the Moon (with Elizabeth Mitchell) and Camp Lisa (with sales benefiting the Camp Lisa Foundation). In 2013, she published her second picture book-CD for Sterling Children’s Books: Lisa Loeb’s Songs for Movin’ and Shakin’. Her song “Disappointing Pancake” became a hit in concert and on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Loeb recently cowrote the children’s musical Camp Kappawanna, which debuted at New York City’s Atlantic Theater Company. Recognizing her work to help kids get to summer camp, the American Camp Association (New England) named Lisa Loeb as its 2015 Camp Champion honoree with a gala celebration at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts.
Loeb’s recent film and television appearances include About a Boy, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, King of the Nerds, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, and Sprout Channel’s Sunny Side Up Show. Her song “3,2,1 Let Go” is featured in the 2015 motion picture Helicopter Mom, which stars Nia Vardalos (and in which Loeb makes an appearance in the role of a teacher). Loeb’s fourth children’s album, Nursery Rhyme Parade! was an Amazon Music / Amazon Prime exclusive release in October 2015; a thirty-minute video special featuring her performing these classic songs and rhymes is also available for streaming on Amazon Music Unlimited and Amazon Prime. Her most recent award-winning family album with Amazon, Feel What U Feel, came out in October 2016. She provides voice talent for two Amazon Originals animated series: Creative Galaxy and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (for which she also composed original songs). She also released Lullaby Girl, a collaboration with Larry Goldings, in October 2017.
Loeb is currently touring around North America and beyond. She is an avid crossword puzzle solver. With the help of puzzle pros Will Shortz and Doug Peterson, she created a crossword to help celebrate the seventy-fifth anniversary of the New York Times crossword puzzle.
