Country of origin:
Type of music generally:
Most recent release, Rabbits On The Run (2011)
Vocally a little like Christine Fellows, musically very different, though
Own and occasional covers
Those who have a greater tolerance of pop than some ectophiles might want to check out Vanessa Carlton. We caught her video for "A Thousand Miles". It's very mainstream pop, catchy, clichéd, and a nicely constructed song. She has a really catchy piano riff as the main musical theme of the song. Her voice is sounds really young though not quite babyish.
Recommended first album:
Recommended for fans of piano pop
Vanessa Carlton—piano, vocals
Abe Laboriel, Jr.— drums
This album didn't stick with me, but I still like "A Thousand Miles" and her cover of the Stones' "Paint It Black" shows that she could really rock tough if she wanted to. (Neile)
