Extraordinary Professor, Music Industry Studies

Musician, songwriter, author, and teacher Eberhard "Lo" Faber holds a B.A. in American Studies from Skidmore College and a Ph.D. in history from Princeton University. Currently, Lo serves as an Extraordinary Professor of Music Industry Studies at Loyola University New Orleans. His first book, Building the Land of Dreams: New Orleans and the Transformation of Early America, was published in October 2015.

Before academia, Lo spent twelve years (1988-2000) leading the influential New York rock band God Street Wine, as well as writing and recording two rock operas, 'Henry's House' (2001) and 'Friday Night Freakshow' (2003). God Street Wine reunited in 2010 for two performances at New York’s Gramercy Theatre, with proceeds benefiting the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Dr. Faber's research interests include colonial and nineteenth-century New Orleans and the Gulf Coast, the southern United States, Jeffersonian democracy and politics, the junction of culture and politics in the 1830s, and society and culture in nineteenth century America. He lives in New Orleans with his wife and two children.

In His Own Words

"This place is special because a spirit of creativity, collaboration, and community seems to dwell in our building and across our little piece of the world."
