Vanessa Carlton is a singer-songwriter who first came to prominence in 2002 with her runaway hit single, "A Thousand Miles". The song was heard literally [[EarWorm everywhere]] after that, becoming a theme for the early 2000s and the new emerging sound at the time. Along with Michelle Branch and AvrilLavigne, she was one of the teen artists [[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan marketed]] as the "Anti-[[BritneySpears Britney]]", a movement which went against the perceived artificiality of pop music at the time by emphasizing singers who could also write their own tunes and in her case, play the piano[[note]][[http://melcampbell.com.au/archives/the-anti-britney-swindle/ Mel Campbell has an in-depth essay on the culture of the time]][[/note]]. She gained a major following of loyal [[FanNickname Nessaholics]] for this reason. However, her mainstream popularity was already beginning to wane, as her next single, ''Ordinary Day'', only managed to reach top 30 in the charts.

Her clash with A&M Records led her to abandon it for the more bohemian The Inc. Records to produce "Heroes & Thieves", an album she made with a more mature perspective in mind. Despite a positive critical response, it was again a commercial failure despite her music being featured on ''GossipGirl''. At this point, she was unsure if she wanted to make another record.

* DoingItForTheArt: Her main priority is being personally happy with her records regardless of industry trends. In particular, she left A&M Records over frustration from their interference and lack of support in regards to ''Harmonium'' and she isolated herself in the English countryside away from major label pressures to produce ''Rabbits on the Run''.
* ExecutiveMeddling: A rare positive example as the president of A&M Records personally helped to record, produce and arrange "A Thousand Miles" after he heard her demo tape, though as mentioned she eventually got frustrated with their overbearing demands, even inserting a TakeThat into Nolita Fairytale.

* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Her girly-girl to Michelle Branch's tomboy (she and Michelle have often been mistaken for each other, due to their similar appearence and the fact that they were popular around the same time).

* NewSoundAlbum: Her first three albums consisted of adult contemporary/baroque pop music. However, ''Rabbits on the Run'' saw her switching to an indie folk style, with occasional influences from baroque pop. Vanessa has also stated that her next album, ''Euphoria,'' will be a dance-pop record.
