Now that Lisa Loeb is getting more rest as a mom, she’s turning her attention to fun projects including starring on Disney‘s Jake and the Never Land Pirates. But she isn’t just lending her speaking voice. In a new episode (“SkyBird Island is Falling”), the musician sings a song with the rest of the cast.

And lucky for her, daughter Lyla Rose, 22 months, can enjoy it. “We usually stay away from too much music at night because it’s just another activating activity, instead of putting her to sleep.”

So how does Loeb feel about her recurring role on the popular cartoon series? “It’s a great job because it really works with my flexible music schedule,” said Loeb recently. “It’s almost the best of both worlds. I get to be a full-time parent, but also get to work.”

Loeb’s current episode airs on Oct. 26 at 1:30 p.m. and Nov. 10 at 10 a.m. For more information, go to disney.com.
