“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 release her Earlier Things Live album out today which is a collection of live versions of Vanessa’s earlier work and includes fan favorites such as the Grammy nominated “A Thousand Miles” and “White Houses.” Additionally, there is a special duet with John McCauley of the Deer Tick Song “In Our Time.”

Vanessa will also begin her tour next week in support of both Earlier Things Live and Liberman Live which contains live versions of her critically acclaimed 2015 studio release, Liberman. Tour dates include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Nashville, and more.

These two live releases work together to make a whole, and give fans a clear vantage point from which to see the musical evolution of Vanessa Carlton from where she was as a teenager to where she is today as an adult.

Fans 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.
