Vanessa Carlton booking
Vanessa Lee Carlton (born August 16, 1980 in Milford, Pennsylvania) is an American pop and rock
singer, songwriter and pianist best known for her hit song “A Thousand Miles”, the first single from her
platinum-selling debut album Be Not Nobody (2002).
Vanessa’s fourth studio album, “Rabbits on the Run” is scheduled to be released on July 26th, 2011.
Carlton explained that she wrote the song in a dream where the “da na na na na” tune was floating
around. Three Grammy nominations, three studio albums, and a collection of hit songs has been the
result of a fruitful career thus far for Vanessa Carlton, who first exploded onto the scene in 2002 with
her stunning debut Be Not Nobody, and world-wide hit single “A Thousand Miles.” Vanessa Carlton
first began playing the piano as a toddler, continuing on an artistic road with her attendance at the
School of American Ballet in New York, a path she would eventually abandon in favor of songwriting.
She re-embraced the piano and began performing in bars and clubs across Manhattan. While studying
at Columbia University, Carlton was signed to Interscope Records, but made her formal debut on A&M
under veteran producer Ron Fair.
Her debut album in April 2002, Be Not Nobody, resonated with audiences of all ages world-wide,
especially the hit piano single “A Thousand Miles,” which reached the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100
Singles chart, #1 in Australia, and Top 10 in the UK. Carlton went on to earn 2003 Grammy
nominations for Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Instrumental Arrangement
Accompanying Vocalist (“A Thousand Miles”). The album witnessed global success, reaching Gold
status in over 10 countries, and Platinum status in Asian territories, such as Hong Kong, Indonesia,
and Taiwan. Her second album Harmonium (2004), which yielded the single “White Houses,”
continued to inspire an increasingly loyal global fan base and garnered some the best reviews of her
career. Her record release in 2007, Heroes & Thieves “might be my first thematic record,” Carlton
says, adding that the songs reveal themselves like chapters in a book, one that fans can crack open
(Vanessa has often explained during her live shows that the second single from “Heroes & Thieves”
entitled “Hands On Me” is the second chapter to the album). Paying homage to the area of Manhattan
where most of its songs were written, the first single off of the 2007 record, appropriately dubbed
“Nolita Fairytale,” is a syncopated, upbeat piece that paints a dramatic musical landscape. ” That song
is really about finding joy in unexpected environments. How sometimes losing things makes you
realize what you have, which is like a quasi fairytale,” says Carlton. Heroes & Thieves was recorded in
the San Francisco studio of Third Eye Blind founder Stephan Jenkins and the Los Angeles studio of
producer/songwriter Linda Perry.
Most recently, Vanessa has completed material for her fourth studio album, titled Rabbits on the Run,
which is scheduled for a June 21st, 2011 release. Material for this album was produced by Steve
Osborne (U2, B-52′s, KT Tunstall), and was recorded in the UK at Peter Gabriel’s well-renowned Real
