Celebrity Eyewear News – Lisa Loeb Launches Eyewear Line

Recently, a childhood friend of mine, Mike Politz of  Food and Beverage Magazine fame told me about a line of eyewear his friend was launching.  Turned out his friend was Lisa Loeb, the acclaimed singer-songwriter, known for wearing iconic cat eye style eyewear.

Lisa recently partnering with Classique Eyewear, to launch the “LL” line, meant to model Lisa’s signature style.

Each frame will be named after one of her songs.  We wish her the best of luck with her new line and will bring our readers periodic updates when the LL line of eyewear puts out their new seasonal styles and colors.

About Lisa Loeb:

In 1994 when Lisa Loeb’s breakout song, “Stay (I Missed You),” landed at No. 1 on the charts it was a remarkable and unparalleled feat for an unsigned artist, though perhaps not a surprising one for the recent Brown grad, the girl with the cat-eye glasses, who at the time was already making her mark in New York’s burgeoning singer-songwriter scene. For anyone who knew her back then, or who saw her perform at various clubs around town including the Cottonwood Café, The Bitter End, the Bottom Line and CB’s Gallery, it wasn’t a question of if, but when Loeb would hit it big.

Independent, determined and savvy, Loeb already had years of practical experience under her guitar strap, writing and performing solo acoustic, with her band Nine Stories, and as half of the duo Liz And Lisa, (with Brown pal Elizabeth Mitchell), when her friend and neighbor in New York, actor Ethan Hawke, starred in “Reality Bites,” and helped put “Stay” on the soundtrack to the now iconic film. That fortuitous placement and the much played, daring, one-take video that Hawke directed for the song catapulted Loeb from the heart of New York’s vibrant club scene into the national consciousness.

Loeb deftly parlayed that early success into a multi-dimensional career encompassing music, film, television, voice-over work and children’s recordings. Her five acclaimed studio CDs include her major label debut, the Gold-selling Tails (Geffen, 1995) and its follow-up, the Grammy-nominated, Gold-selling Firecracker (Geffen, 1997). In 2002, Loeb issued a pair of CDs, Cake And Pie and Hello Lisa. She released The Way It Really Is on Zoë/Rounder in 2004 and starred in the first of two television series, “Dweezil and Lisa,” a weekly culinary adventure for Food Network. Later that year Loeb reunited with her college music partner, Elizabeth Mitchell on the award-winning children’s CD and companion book Catch The Moon. The Very Best of Lisa Loeb was released through Universal in 2006, shortly before Loeb returned to television with an inspired look at finding love on her show No. 1 Single for E! Entertainment. While the series didn’t lead to a long-term romance, she did captivate the hearts of a younger audience with three stellar videos in heavy rotation on Noggin, “Catch The Moon” and “Stop and Go” from Catch The Moon, and the most recent clip, “Jenny Jenkins.”

Loeb’s other television and film credits include appearances on The Chris Isaak Show, and The Drew Carey Show. She starred in her first feature film role, opposite Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush in the movie House On Haunted Hill in 1999. In 2003 Loeb gave voice to Spiderman’s gal pal Mary Jane in MTV’s animated series Spider-Man.

Loeb continues to grow as an artist and to push herself and her career forward with a creative zeal and an inner drive not often seen.
