Lisa Loeb is a singer/songwriter, producer, touring artist, actor, author and philanthropist who started her career with the platinum-selling number (or No.) 1 hit song, Stay (I Missed You) from the film Reality Bites, as well as two back-to-back albums that were certified GoldTails and Firecracker.

Her acclaimed studio CDs include her major-label debut, the gold-selling Tails (Geffen, 1995), and its follow-up, the Grammy-nominated, gold-selling Firecracker (Geffen, 1997).
