Vanessa Carlton - Did You Know?May 22, 2019

Music facts, music trivia, interesting stories and much more. Introducing the "Did You Know" page about American singer, songwriter and pianist, Vanessa Carlton.




Vanessa Carlton is an American singer, songwriter and pianist.

When Carlton was only 8 years old, she wrote her first song, which was a piano composition. At age 14, she enrolled at New York City's prestigious school of American ballet, but it was not an enjoyable experience for her, as it was very intense for her and made her start hating dancing.

When she was a teenager, she struggled with depression and developed anorexia after completing high school. After seeking therapy, Carlton overcame her eating disorder before her first single debuted, and now, she manages her depression with medication.

In 2002, Carlton's debut single, "A Thousand Miles", reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100, and her debut album, Be Not Nobody, followed and received a platinum certification in the United States.
