Kay Hanley–Life After Letters to Cleo

_mg_4338.jpg

Remember 10 Things I Hate About You? Our fave guilty pleasure teen movie. Not only did the movie have Heath Ledger, Larry Miller, and Julia Stiles, it had Letters to Cleo covering Nick Lowe’s Cruel to Be Kind.

And Letters to Cleo was fronted by cute blond chirp, Kay Hanley. Who blogs. And who also sings behind Hannah Montana and tells Babble all about it.

And get this–she lives in LA. Los Feliz to be exact.

What’s she doing these days?

Michael [Eisenstein, her husband and former guitarist for Letters To Cleo] and I wrote and produced music for the Care Bears: Oopsy Does It movie. I loved writing those songs! “Caring Changes the World” is one of the best songs I’ve written with Michael.

What’s cool is that she so easily could have dismissed her Care Bears oeuvre or snarked about it or trashed it, but didn’t.

Her MySpace Page has her rather more grownup music.
