Vanessa Carlton was born on August 16, 1980 in Milford, Pennsylvania, United States. She studied dancing at the School of American Ballet but after completing her education, she decided to pursue music instead of dance. She first performed in various bars and clubs around New York City. She was then discovered and signed a deal with a recording label.
In 2002, she released her debut song “A Thousand Miles”, which became an instant worldwide hit, earning her widespread prominence. This also got her a Grammy nomination for Song of the Year in 2003. Subsequently, she released her debut album Be Not Nobody. She went on to release follow-up albums, Harmonium (2004), Heroes & Thieves (2007), Rabbits on the Run (2011), and Liberman (2015), though all these failed to match the commercial success of her first album.
