The Lisa Loeb Eyewear line was created to satisfy all of those people who always stop me and ask me where I get my glasses because they want some just like mine!
I eat fish and love bacon. Plus, I don't mind if soups are made with chicken or beef stock, I just don't like eating big pieces of meat.
Although my dad was a doctor, we weren't necessarily a super-artsy family. We were just a classic, traditional family who got to take a lot of piano lessons and became a bunch of musicians.
My nutritionist always said to eat whatever you want.
When I was a kid, for me, the '60s seemed so far away. But I was actually born in the late '60s. Lisa Loe
I try to get enough sleep and exercise, try not to make mountains out of molehills, and vent a lot. I have a good team to support my work. I also do lots of mundane things, which will center me.
A friend of mine once told me that I can't screw up when I play my own music. I also take voice lessons, play other peoples' songs out of music books, and occasionally figure out how to play other people's music from records. This keeps my ears, fingers, and mind working
The shows are so different from each other, depending on whether I play with my band, Nine Stories, other musicians, an orchestra, only one or two members of my band.
I always find myself stopping to write down ideas of things I'd like to make from computer hardware items to things new moms need - inventions to share with others to make their lives more fun or interesting or easy.
I think a good mom is an awake mom. At least for me, I've always been a kinder, better person awake than sleep-deprived!
With my daughter, we do arts and crafts, we read a lot, we listen to music, and we cut the strings off balloons and bounce them around after birthday parties.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie? Lisa Loe
When I was a kid, for me, the '60s seemed so far away. But I was actually born in the late '60s.
The only way to get vegetables at a diner late night is to order the omelette. A feta cheese and broccoli omelette.
It's really hard to balance work and being a mother.
I've made music for grownups most of my life as a singer/songwriter - often with my band, Nine Stories - recorded many albums, and 10 years ago I started recording kid's music, too.
I decided to do this TV series because what I do as a musician and songwriter is connect to an audience, so why not take that to another level,
Dweezil and I are going on tour with the band probably starting in the middle of February for a month probably playing a few songs from my new record and then I'll continue on after that tour
I'm old-school. I want to be there to drop off my daughter at school and pick her up.
Also, I'm always learning better and better how to prioritize and how to leave certain things for the next day.
I want to work on some more complicated baking... and it would be interactive!
I don't think I can tell any stories about how I lived in a van in Alaska. I grew up in the suburbs, I even had my own room. We weren't poor. Everything was very normal.
I grew up with family who liked to travel and sightsee, so I have this pressure inside me: If I'm in a city and I have enough free time, I'd better go to a museum. I try to see parks, go outside. Or else try to feel really normal like go to Target or a drugstore, or go see a movie.
The guys in my band are great-we watch movies, we eat pizza, take walks, read books. Everybody has a really great sense of humor. And my boyfriend comes and visits me on the road.
I want children to be glued to interactive books that encourage singing and dancing. I feel when kids work together it brings about a different energy.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why not say you want cake and pie?
Again, I don't hold it against somebody if they don't know who I am - I don't know who a lot of people are.
One of the things that's influenced me musically was my experience at Brown University. I was surrounded by musicians that I really admired, and felt challenged to come up with music, lyrics, and recordings that stood up to the expectations of those musicians and myself.
I always wanted to make a children's album because you have the freedom to explore so many wonderful topics and sounds.
Some people train for certain sports and I want to train to be able to hold a super heavy electric guitar and carry luggage around myself because I always have to have 7,000 pairs of shoes. Who cares about sports?
