i have always loved vanessa carlton's music. in an industry that is filled with little disney princesses who can hardly sing, vanessa is real and fresh and organic. you can't listen to her music without feeling it. although people seemed to forget about her after 'a thousand miles', she has continued to masterfully create incredible songs, and i envy her songwriting ability. her latest album "rabbits on a run" is inspired by richard adam's book "watership down", something i vaguely remember from my childhood memories. i find vanessa's mind fascinating and often spend time contemplating her lyrics, trying to get a small glimpse into how she thinks. nonetheless, listen to a new song of hers below and buy her music here.
