Vanessa Carlton is a new young artist that has come a long way in a very short amount of time. She got a four star rating on her debut album, Be Not Nobody. That says a lot for a young artist these days. She not only has a beautiful voice, but she can play the piano like Beethoven. She even writes her own lyrics and Alicia Keys influenced her. Although people may say that they sound alike, they are entirely different artists. Stephen Erlewine, the writer from allmusicguide.com, says that she has the soul-searching of Fiona Apple and the precise intricacies of Rick Wakeman.
Her style is very laid-back and relaxing. She uses a lot of orchestral background music to help aid her Spring-like voice. The result is something quite surprising: it has an overwhelming, sweet, multi-layered appeal to people of all ages and cultures. The first person who actually introduced me to her music was one of my guy friends. He is only twenty and he is African American. I was surprised to hear that he moved out of his normal rap music and actually paid attention
