"As we work to expand the scope of genres and disciplines that we present at Feinstein's at the Nikko, we looked to our namesake, Michael Feinstein, and his mission of keeping alive the tradition of the Great American Songbook. Lisa broke ground and rewrote the rules for independent singer/songwriters, creating a voice and sound specific to a new generation of artist. I'm thrilled that she is making her Feinstein's debut this November and we look forward to deepening our exploration of newer generations of artists that helped to further the art of the Great American Songbook." Dallas native Lisa Loeb is a 2018 GRAMMY Award-winning singer songwriter, touring musician and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling #1 hit song, "Stay (I Missed You)," from the film "Reality Bites." A trailblazing independent artist, Lisa was the first pop musician to have a #1 single while not signed to a recording contract. She followed that remarkable feat with several hit singles- including "Do You Sleep," "I Do," and "Let's Forget About It"-and six albums, two of which were certified gold. Lisa is also well known to parents and kids for her five children's albums and two illustrated children's books with music. Lisa recently collaborated to develop and write the children's musical Camp Kappawanna, which debuted at New York City's Atlantic Theater Company. Inspired by her own love of summer camp, in 2008 Lisa started The Camp Lisa Foundation, which sends underserved kids to summer camp. In 2015, The American Camp Association of New England named Lisa Loeb as their Camp Champions Honoree with a gala celebration at Fenway Park. Over the last three years, Lisa has released three children's albums that are exclusively available with Amazon. In January 2018, her family-friendly album, "Feel What U Feel," won the Grammy Award for Best Children's Album, along with rave reviews and The Parents Choice Award. Among other shows, Lisa provides voice talent for the animated series "Creative Galaxy" and composes the original songs for the Emmy nominated "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" series. Her songs from the series make up a soundtrack album that was released in June of 2018 exclusively with Amazon. This past Spring, through Rolling Stone, Loeb exclusively released her cover of Bright Eyes' "First Day of My Life," which she recorded after performing it for a friend's wedding a decade ago. In July, she released the new track, 'Love Never Dies,' an original song she wrote and recorded as a theme song to accompany acclaimed author James Patterson's latest novel, "Sophia, Princess Among Beasts." Often recognized for her iconic cat-eyed glasses, Lisa redefines how women accessorize with her own eyewear line. As an entrepreneur, Lisa oversees the business and eyewear design of Lisa Loeb Eyewear.
