“Thirteen years after ‘A Thousand Miles,’ Vanessa Carlton has refined her voice as a songwriter. Liberman is her fifth studio album, and it’s turning heads.” – Rolling Stone
“Liberman is excellent on its own. Carlton’s voice is the key attraction on songs that register between low-key pop, rock, and folk.” – Pitchfork
“Carlton’s reinvention finds her a long way from “A Thousand Miles” – and in a better place, artistically.” – The Boston Globe
“…she’s back, she’s dreamy, there’s some sort of arty thing going on here, she’s moved to Nashville, had a baby girl with Deer Tick’s John McCauley, and simply sounds better than ever.” –Yahoo
Vanessa Carlton is thrilled to announce her 2017 tour in support of her Liberman Live and Earlier Things Live albums.Tour dates include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Nashville, and more.

Fans first were first given a taste of Carlton’s musical evolution when the studio version of Liberman was released in 2015 via Dine Alone/Caroline. The ten songs on the album reflected on Vanessa’s current state of mind since moving from NYC to Nashville, marrying husband John McCauley (Deer Tick) and having a baby girl. The simple instrumentation mixed with her wistful vocals and poignant lyrics brought you into her world and showcased a new side to this accomplished songwriter.
