Lisa Rieffel (born January 12, 1975) is an American singer, musician, and actress. She is a founding member and lead singer of the Los Angeles-based alternative rock band Killola, and has been a singer/actress since childhood. Her band Killola has released three albums: Louder, Louder! (2006), I Am The Messer (2008) and Let's Get Associated (2010) as well as a live DVD/CD Killola: Live in Hollywood (2007). She was an original cast member of The King of Queens during the show's first season, taking part in five of the Emmy-nominated sitcom's first six (not episode 4) episodes before leaving the show to pursue a career in music. She has appeared in over 20 movies and television shows, including NCIS, Drowning Mona, The Pretender, Party of Five, and Empty Nest (she was introduced on the latter series after the quick exit of Kristy McNichol). Rieffel co-wrote and recorded a song entitled "So Pretty" for the 2003 movie Legally Blond 2: Red, White & Blonde. Since 2007, Rieffel and her husband have hosted their own live radio show on Monday nights, via the band's website. As a child, Rieffel starred on Broadway, and at The Kennedy Center, in the theatrical stage production of Raggedy Ann. In 2007, Rieffel starred in the cult-popular web-series Girltrash! created by Angela Robinson. Girltrash! was a gritty, pulp comedy-drama with a decidedly lesbian spin. The web-series co-starred Killola vocalist Lisa Rieffel, Margaret Cho, Rose Rollins, Michelle Lombardo, Riki Lindhome, Jimmi Simpson, Mandy Musgrave, Gabrielle Christian, Amber Benson and Jordana Brewster. The webisodic consisted of 11 installments, airing weekly via, a fictitious website-turned-social-network controlled by Showtime. The feature film Girltrash: All Night Long produced by POWER UP [1] began production in December 2009. The script was written by Angela Robinson, with Killola writing and producing the original songs for the film's musical numbers[2]. [3]Girltrash: All Night Long is set to release in 2011.
