Lisa Loeb's announcement of a live new tour is generating a magnetic current of excitement as these tour dates currently already include Los Angeles at the Bootleg Theater, San Francisco (at the Independent), Florida, Georgia, D.C., NYC, Boston and Philly. On top of this tour announcement, Loeb's classic "Stay" was just featured on a widely discussed episode of "Girls" (much talked about episode was named after Lemonhead's "It's a Shame About Ray"). "Stay" will also be featured on "Workaholics" Wednesday, February 13.
Lisa Loeb herself will be enjoying bringing her work to Conan O'Brien in appearing on his show Tuesday, February 19. More on all this exciting buzz is soon to come, and here right now in this interview are more of Lisa's intriguing thoughts in the context of her "No Fairy Tale" classic recent release:
W.E. It feels like your music has a subtext that opens many windows of conversation, that it is perhaps even addressing the mass audience itself at times as a character in the narrative - is there any truth in this idea and who is being primarily addressed in your mind's eye?
L.L. In each song there is a different person being addressed. In general, most people can probably relate to the songs, as most of them have something to do with relationships or emotional states. In the case of a song like "Swept Away," I write about trying when you're down. I probably reference some of my own experience as well as being inspired to finish the song after watching the documentary about Joan Rivers' life! I think everyone can relate to the ideas of taking advantage of good situations when they come up and to never stop trying. The song "No Fairy Tale" is about how perfection isn't necessarily a way to live a great life.
