Not long after taking up the bass and writing her first songs, Blair signed a development and publishing deal with Universal-PolyGram Music. In short order, she formed a band, Lucie Gamelon, and played the L.A. music scene as well as major dates on the Lilith Fair Tour with Liz Phair and Morcheeba among others. Reviewing her first EP, Everything Is Nice, Puncture Magazine wrote: “Short on material, long on substance and leaves the craving sensation that smacks of sugar and sex.”
Blair has written original songs for The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Stuart Little, Felicity, Shopaholic and Desperate Housewives and a number of tracks from her album Shocked and Devastated have been featured on soundtracks including The Anniversary Party, Glen Ballard's Clubland, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The King Is Alive and Fashion TV among others.
Blair's musical, In the Land of the Giants, won glowing reviews during its sold-out run at the 2nd Stage Theatre: The L.A. Weekly wrote, “Painfully funny. A remarkably enjoyable evening of tuneful self-deprecation.” The Los Angeles Times proclaimed: "Hilarious tales of minor celebrity and humiliation. Deceptively breezy. Witty.”
As an actress, Blair honed her comedy skills as a longtime member of The Groundlings and starred in their hit production, Just Like the Pom Pom Girls, for which she won L.A. Weekly and Dramalogue awards.
Blair appeared opposite Ben Stiller in Greenberg, with Jennifer Jason Leigh in The Anniversary Party and as James Spader's date-from-hell in Dream Lover. Other films include Fright Night 2, Inside Monkey Zetterland, SFW, Three For The Road, A Sinful Life, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, as Chris Elliot's fly-by-night girlfriend in the iconic sitcom Get A Life and as pretentious French filmmakers with Rupert Everett in the hilarious SNL short, "Un Film de . . ." Blair may still be best known as Robin Maxwell from the sci fi hit "V".
Blair's new EP, I Like It When You’re Down was released October 2021. Her forthcoming comedy, Death Is Always On The Way, is set to premiere in 2022.
