Deborah Lynn "Debbie" Loeb (born September 19, 1970, Marin County, California)[1] is a female singer/songwriter/actress and is the sister of singer/songwriter/actress Lisa Loeb. She is a native of Bethesda, Maryland and was raised in Dallas, Texas, where she currently lives. She is best known for appearing as herself in her sister's reality-based series Number 1 Single.


Loeb, who stands out at 5'6" and is taller than Lisa, is best known for her work in the Dance music community and to viewers on MTV as the host of The Debbie Loeb Show (a take on "Ricki Lake"), the children's program Debbie Debutante and the Televisa series "Lo Mejor del Mundial." She also worked on various broadway and music projects.

In 2006 Loeb scored a record deal with Ultra Records (the signing of Loeb to the label was featured on "Number 1 Single"), which released her first single, "Faraway". The track became a major hit at Dance radio, where it debuted at number 21 on Billboard's Hot Dance Airplay chart for the week ending March 27, 2006, although a Billboard critic wrote the following month that it "[comes] across as a trailer part redux of Lisa."[2] In July 2010 she released "How Does It Feel" with Hi-Maintenance Productions[3] and in April 2013, "So Into You".[4]


She holds an M.A in Solo Performance and Education from NYU and a B.A. in Spanish (her second language) from the University of California at Berkeley and also works with young people with learning disabilities as a learning specialist.
