Vanessa Carlton’s evolution as a songwriter and live performer is remarkable. Having burst onto the music scene in 2002 with her hit single “A Thousand Miles.”, one of the biggest singles of the early 2000s, she spent subsequent years sidelining her pop persona to create earnest, near avant-garde music which retains her honeysuckle vocals and delicate piano licks. The UK release for her critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Liberman via Dine Alone Records is due in May 2015. Liberman’s simple instrumentation mixed with poignant lyrics showcase a new side to Carlton’s already accomplished songwriting.
