Early Life

Lisa Loeb was born Lisa Anne Loeb on March 11, 1968, in Bethesda, Maryland. She grew up in a Jewish household in Dallas, Texas, with mother Gail, father Peter, and younger sister Debbie. Gail served as president of the Dallas County Medical Society Alliance and Foundation, Peter was a gastroenterologist, and Debbie is a songwriter. Lisa studied piano during her childhood, but she later decided to play guitar instead. She attended an all-girls private school called The Hockaday School, and she hosted a radio show on 88.5 KRSM-FM, which was licensed to the all-boys school St. Marks School of Texas. After graduation, Loeb enrolled at Brown University, earning a comparative literature degree in 1990.


As a college student, Loeb formed the band Liz and Lisa with Elizabeth Mitchell, and Duncan Sheik played guitar with them. The duo released a self-titled album in 1989, followed by "Days Were Different" in 1990. Lisa and Liz reunited in 2003 for the children's album "Catch the Moon." Loeb attended a summer school session at Boston's Berklee College of Music and formed the band Nine Stories with guitarist Tim Bright, bassist Joe Quigley, and drummer Jonathan Feinberg in 1990. The band recorded the cassette "Purple Tape" in 1992 and sold it at gigs, and Lisa also performed solo at New York City coffeehouses and clubs. Loeb got her big break with the help of actor Ethan Hawke, who lived across from her NYC apartment building. She "made music for his plays," and when she gave him an early version of "Stay (I Missed You)," he gave it to Ben Stiller, who was directing Hawke in "Reality Bites." Stiller used the song during the film's end credits, and it was featured on the soundtrack. Hawke directed the song's music video, and "Stay (I Missed You)" made Lisa the first unsigned artist to have a #1 hit on the "Billboard" Hot 100 chart.
