On December 17, 2015, Vanessa Carlton took the stage in front of a packed audience at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN for the final date of the “Liberman” Tour.
She’ll candidly admit that countless thoughts swirled around in her head—“I was feeling pretty emotional about how far I’ve come.” The singer/songwriter was in her new home of Nashville surrounded by family and fans, 15 years into an illustrious career, and supporting her most acclaimed work to date, Liberman— and subsequently Liberman Live and Earlier Things Live.
Just two months earlier, the album arrived to unanimous praise from Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, and many more including Pitchfork who claimed, “A million years ago, Vanessa Carlton released ‘A Thousand Miles,’ the pop song that launched a generation of piano lessons. Now, she's releasing the raw, muted, refreshingly weird Liberman." Ultimately, Liberman is a new chapter in Carlton’s storied career, revealing new facets of her musical skill and instigating fresh inspirations.
Carlton says, “In a way I was able to persevere after having success out of the gate and figure out a path that feels pure to me. But I had to create this environment where I felt comfortable changing. When I was first doing records I was so young and I wanted to please everyone. Now I sort of feel ancient and I love it and I just want to make art for its own sake. Everything I’ve done and everything I am is there in the songs.”
