Vanessa Carlton: A Thousand Miles to obscurity
– Celebrity Gossip –
Vanessa Carlton broke out in a huge way in 2002, releasing her debut album Be Not Nobody, which included one of the year’s, if not the decade’s, most inescapable hits. It seems like there was about a six-month chunk back then when every radio station in the world played nothing besides Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles,” a pleasant, soaring pop tune highlighted by Carlton’s rich, soulful voice and skillful piano work. All the more impressive: Carlton was just 21 at the time of the song’s release.
Carlton sat at the forefront of a new mini-movement in pop music — performers who wrote their own songs and actually played instruments, which was a refreshing change after the TRL era of boy bands and highly sexualized blonde singers.
