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 Music/MichelleBranch and Music/AvrilLavigne, she was one of the teen artists [[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan marketed]] as the "Anti-[[Music/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.

* BreakUpSong: A few, including some interesting takes on it, like "Fools Like Me" (the singer giving out to herself for getting into a relationship with the subject), "Carousel" (a song in third person, in the form of advice to people who've just broken up), and "Fairweather Friend" (actually wishes said friend well in his new life, albeit sarcastically pointing out his phoniness in the process).

She eventually recorded "Rabbits on the Run" in Peter Gabriel's "Real World Studios" in the UK. Drawing inspiration from StephenHawking and ''WatershipDown'' and featuring the Capital Children's Choir, the album features minimal production values and a more atmospheric sound. It was eventually released on indie label Razor & Tie and is regarded as the purest expression of herself by her fanbase due to the lack of label pressures.

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.
