Lisa Loeb Records Exclusive EP for LimeWire Store

Sales to Benefit Camp Lisa Foundation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 25, 2008) - On December 9, 2008, LimeWire Store will release "Live at Lime with Lisa Loeb," an acoustic, digital-only EP comprised of Loeb's pop hits and recent children's songs.

Available exclusively through LimeWire Store at, Lime Wire will be donating their proceeds to the Camp Lisa Foundation, Loeb's non-profit, which raises funds to send underprivileged children to summer camp. Loeb recently launched the Camp Lisa Foundation in partnership with S.C.O.P.E. (Summer Camp Opportunities Provide an Edge, Inc.).

Recorded live as an acoustic three piece, the EP contains fresh interpretations of Loeb favorites.

Included is Loeb's hit "Stay (I Missed You)," which was the number one song on American charts for 3 weeks in 1994, earning her the distinction of being the first artist to top Billboard's Hot 100 without being signed to any record label.

The song was featured in the 1994 film "Reality Bites" starring Ethan Hawke and directed by Ben Stiller. Hawke "discovered" Loeb and the song "Stay" when he was living in an apartment across the street from her in NYC. He brought the song to Stiller who agreed to feature it in the movie. Hawke went on to direct the video for the song featuring his cat and Loeb walking around a mostly empty apartment while singing.

Also on the EP -- "You Don't Know Me," written with former boyfriend Dweezil Zappa, "Truthfully," and "Falling in Love." Three songs from Loeb's recent children's CD (June 2008), "Camp Lisa," are also included: "Best Friends," "Going Away," and "It's Not Goodbye."

The "Camp Lisa" album and The Camp Lisa Foundation grew out of Loeb's love of summer camp and the camp songs that helped shape her childhood. She began her foray into children's music in 2004 with the release of "Catch the Moon," which included a companion board book, earned the prestigious Parent's Choice Award, and led to a series of hugely popular videos for Noggin Network.

"Working with Lisa to help raise awareness and funds for her Camp Lisa Foundation has been great. Her enthusiasm about the foundation's mission is infectious, so we're committed to making this a successful partnership. We've got a great new EP, Lisa has a large and loyal fan base, and sales benefit a good cause -- that's a powerful combination," said Tom Monday, Director, Partner Relations, LimeWire Store.

"I'm super excited to start the holiday season with LimeWire Store," said Loeb. "They have been incredibly generous and great creative partners on this project, and I look forward to changing the summer for a few more children through The Camp Lisa Foundation."
