TIMELINE

Vanessa Carltonbutton.gif (123 bytes) Vanessa Carlton was born August 16, 1980, and raised in Pennsylvania. Her youth was filled with music and musical creation - composing her first piano piece by age 8. Vanessa pursued the dream of ballet when in her early teens, she attended the School of American Ballet in New York. By her later teens, Vanessa was growing tired of ballet and was more focused on the piano and singing. Vanessa finished dance school, but continued with her singing at various New York locales while also waitressing. Rolling Stone profiled Vanessa as one of "10 Artists To Watch" describing her as "a more pop-oriented Fiona Apple, Minus the stormy psychodrama."

Be Not Nobody. She told VH1 where the title came from: "Be Not Nobody is where I am at in my life right now. I know I'm only 21 but I had to go through a lot at that dance school. I lost a lot of who I was. I fell apart and it was really hard. You feel completely alone, like no one cares. Writing this record let me recapture who I am. It is summed up in the title Be Not Nobody. You need to feel comfortable in your skin and do whatever you need to do for yourself, to heal or to grow."
