LP has experienced every side of the music business. The Long Island native has been a successful songwriter for pop stars such as Christina Aguilera and the Backstreet Boys. But as a performer, she signed with major labels like Def Jam and Warner Brothers only to have her work go unheard.

It wasn't until LP released a stripped-down EP called Death Valley last year that things started to happen for her solo career. A Greek radio DJ played her song "Lost On You," people heard it on the beach and brought it home — and it went No. 1 in Greece, in France and all over Europe. She joins World Cafe with her band, her ukulele and her Bob Dylan-meets-Prince look; hear the complete session above and check out an in-studio video below.
