Vanessa Carlton Announces 2011 Summer Tour Dates


New Album RABBITS ON THE RUN Out On June 21st, 2011

Singer-songwriter Vanessa Carton announces a series of upcoming US tour dates in support of her much-anticipated June 21st album, Rabbits On The Run (Razor & Tie). The tour includes two sold-out nights at Joe’s Pub, on Sunday, June 26th and Monday, June 27th. No stranger to the road, Carlton’s tour will hit major cities including Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and LA.

Lead single “Carousel,” the album’s opening track, is a lyrical and lilting stunner, soon to be accompanied by a video which closely illustrates and beautifully captures the song’s mood. It was directed by Jake Davis (Flyleaf, My Chemical Romance) and will be made available shortly. “Carousel” impacts radio on June 20th and is now available on all digital service providers– purchase from iTunes.

Rabbits on the Run, Vanessa Carlton’s fourth studio album, was produced by Steve Osborne (U2, B-52’s, KT Tunstall) and was recorded in the UK at Peter Gabriel’s world-renowned Real World Studios. The album returns to a different era of music-making: ten intimate, evocative songs, recorded directly to tape with her close-knit team of collaborators including Steve Osborne, Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket, and Ari Ingber of The Upwelling (all playing on the album). Part inspired by two books: Richard Adams’ Watership Down and Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time, Rabbits on the Run is by far the most honest and uncompromised album she has recorded to date, revealing a striking departure and an exciting snapshot in the evolution of this exquisite storyteller and inventive musician. Songs include the 70’s-sun-drenched “Dear California,” the lush “Carousel” and the bold “I Don’t Want to Be a Bride.” Fans can pre-order the album now at Amazon.coHYPERLINK “”mHYPERLINK “” HERE.

Three Grammy nominations, three studio albums, platinum sales and a collection of hit songs are some notable results of a fruitful career thus far for Vanessa Carlton. She first exploded onto the scene in 2002 with her stunning debut Be Not Nobody, and world-wide hit single “A Thousand Miles.” Vanessa Carlton first began playing the piano as a toddler, continuing on an artistic road with her attendance at the School of American Ballet in New York, a path she would eventually abandon in favor of songwriting. While studying at Columbia University in New York City, Carlton was signed to Interscope Records and has since released three albums featuring songs such as “A Thousand Miles,” “White Houses,” and “Nolita Fairytale.” Carlton’s music has resonated with audiences of all ages world-wide and she continues to inspire an increasingly loyal fan base. Vanessa Carlton is managed by Career Artist Management (CAM).
