Lisa Loeb, who talks in this interview about handling success, continues releasing her remarkably creative collection of wide-ranging forms of energizing achievement, as her new songbook "Lisa Loeb's Songs For Movin' and Shakin': The Air Band Song and Other Toe-Tapping Tunes" is now available today for pre-order on Amazon to be enjoyed by kids and, no doubt, their joyful parents as well.
Lisa recently appeared on "Piers Morgan" in an episode specifically devoted to health (Cyndi Lauper and Madeleine Stowe also appear with guest host Dr. Mehmet Oz), and she discussed, among other things, having a child, this time at 44 years young. Having just released her punk-pop truly triumphant recorded return to her passion for glorious rock music, entitled "No Fairy Tale," the inspirational Lisa Loeb is following this classic album right away with music for a demographic especially dear to her heart: kids.
In seeing her recent rocking L.A. performance at the Bootleg concert, in conversation, and in considering the release now of her new upcoming songbook for kids, one finds limitless moving examples of an individual inspiring multitudes by utilizing creativity in such wonderful ways. Lisa's perspective in viewing life clearly provides a key component of her overall ability to see how to succeed across the board in numerous specific areas. All of these ideas, events, and achievements give a great fresh context to this unreleased (until now) new portion of this reporter's interview with Lisa in continuing moving forward:
W.E. Do you have any advice for musicians who are on the verge of potentially receiving significant attention - especially in terms of the best approach to handling success?
L.L. I think it's important to know that there are different levels of success: commercial success, success as a songwriter, success in personal life. It's important to keep your life balanced, and do whatever you can to become a better artist, learn what you can, meet who you can to improve your business sense and connections, and keep your personal life a priority so that you have a real life to be a part of to share successes or situations that feel less positive.
