Lisa Loeb is a touring artist, author and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling number one hit song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the film Reality Bites. Lisa was the first artist to have a number one single while not signed to a recording contract, a remarkable and unparalleled feat for an unsigned artist. She followed it up with the hit singles "Do You Sleep," "I Do," and "Let's Forget about It, ” and the albums Cake and Pie and No Fairy Tale, among others.
Lisa continues to craft irresistible pop songs for the 21st century, while designing Lisa Loeb Eyewear, writing children's books, and supporting non-profit causes.

She published her second picture book-CD for Sterling Children's Books: Lisa Loeb's Songs for Movin' and Shakin', in 2013. Her song “Disappointing Pancake” became a hit in concert and on SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Lisa recently collaborated to co-write the children's musical "Camp Kappawanna," which debuted at New York City's Atlantic Theater Company. Recognizing her work to help kids get to summer camp, the American Camp Association, New England will recognize Lisa Loeb as their 2015 Camp Champions Honoree.
