In This Episode: Lisa Roth

When you hear our next guest’s last name, you most likely think of her larger-than-life big brother David Lee Roth — lead singer of Van Halen.  But did you know that musical prowess ran in the family?  

Driven to turn her love of music into a gift that mothers and babies could enjoy together, Lisa Roth conceived an album series called Rockabye Baby, which transforms pop and rock hits into instrumental lullabies.  Acts like Metallica, Lady Gaga, Fleetwood Mac, Madonna, No Doubt, Snoop Dogg, and (of course) Van Halen have never sounded so sweet.   

With over 100 albums released and billions of streams under her belt, she’s proven to be an exceptional entrepreneur, record label executive and creative director. 

In this chat, Lisa Roth covers:

  • Life as a kid in the Roth household
  • How the ‘60s and ‘70s school integration and women’s lib movements shaped her journey
  • Transforming a rock anthem into a soothing lullaby (it ain’t easy!)
  • Which skillset gives her an advantage as an entrepreneur

Plus, Lisa’s answers to The Shakedown!
