Lisa Loeb first tugged on America’s heartstrings in 1994 with her chart-topping single “Stay (I Missed You).” Since then, the Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter with the signature eyeglasses has been turning out albums of sweet pop gems. In 2006, she released “The Very Best of Lisa Loeb.”

Last year, Loeb also starred in her own E! TV reality series, “#1 Single,” which followed her as she looked for love. Now she is revisiting her roots with a double-disc reissue of her 1992 debut “The Purple Tape,” featuring original acoustic versions of some of her classics.

Having opened her heart to all of us for the past 15 years, Loeb will be giving Forward readers a chance to open up to her. In January, she will be serving as our guest Bintel Brief advice columnist.

Is she Jewish? I would have never guessed. Can somebody provide her background?

Leo, Here is an interesting article that discuss Lisa Loeb's Jewishness. http://www.jewishsf.com/content/2-0-/module/displaystory/story_id/28292/edition_id/538/format/html/displaystory.html She seems like a great addition to the Bintel Brief: young, hip, and creative, but with attachment to Judaism. I look forward to her advice on Monday.
