Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Lisa Loeb began her career with the platinum-selling No. 1 song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the 1994 film “Reality Bites.”

The hit song continues to resonate with people today, a testament to Ms. Loeb’s gifts as a songwriter and storyteller. To this day, she is still the only artist to have a No. 1 single while not signed to a recording contract, a remarkable and unparalleled feat for an unsigned artist.

Ms. Loeb continues to craft irresistible pop songs for the 21st century, while designing eyewear, writing children’s books and supporting nonprofit causes.

She has successfully parlayed her talents into a multi-dimensional career encompassing music, film and television. Her recent onscreen appearances include John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “About a Boy,” “Hot Tub Time Machine 2,” “King of the Nerds” as well as Sprout’s “Sunny Side Up Show.”

Ms. Loeb also co-wrote the new musical “Camp Kappawanna,” which debuted at New York City’s Atlantic Theater Company in March.
