LISA LOEB ‘REALITY BITES’ SINGER TO PLAY THE BOURBON ROOM
Singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb had an impressive start to her music career, thanks in part to her No. 1 song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the 1994 film Reality Bites. At the age of 26 and without a recording contract, she was already blazing quite the trail.
While the hits songs eventually slowed down, Loeb is now an award-winning children’s musician in addition to an author. And she’s terrific playing herself in a GEICO commercial. This summer the singer is back on tour, including a stop at The Bourbon Room on Wednesday, August 24.
Loeb is excited to mark her Bourbon Room debut as her first show back in Hollywood since the 2020 COVID lockdown.
“I love playing songs from my entire catalogue and telling stories. Every show is different than the last: the audience, the venue, the pre-show snacks – you never know what’s going to happen!”
The prolific musician oscillates between crafting sophisticated pop gems for her adult fans and beautifully crafted songs for kids of all ages, including Feel What U Feel, her most recent children’s album which took home a 2018 Grammy Award for ‘Best Children’s Album.’ Most recently, she released her 2020 album A Simple Trick To Happiness, released just days before the COVID-19 lockdown in the States, receiving rave reviews.
She also recently conceived and collaborated on a collection of 10 mini-musicals titled ‘TOGETHER APART’ with fellow Brown University alumni, including Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”), JoBeth Williams (Poltergeist), and others about connecting in the time of a pandemic. Last summer, she appeared on millions of screens daily in a recent commercial from GEICO, performing a parody of her 1994 hit ‘Stay (I Missed You)’, which was the first-ever song to go to No. 1 on the charts by an at-the-time unsigned artist.
Loeb also keeps busy with her popular eyewear line, her philanthropic Camp Lisa Foundation, her film, television, and voiceover work, and a daily show on SiriusXM’s 90s on 9 channel.
