🚨 You need to know

Some Alexandrians didn’t have to go a thousand miles to see Vanessa Carlton.

The singer-songwriter and pianist played at The Birchmere last night. Ahead of the concert, the Alexandria Times managed to snag an interview with Carlton.

In the interview, Carlton talks about some of the recent challenges, from releasing an album right at the start of the Covid pandemic, and some plans for the future.

Carlton also got candid about her relationship with “A Thousand Miles” — the 2002 song that was Carlton’s biggest hit. She told the Alexandria Times the song is sort of the “elephant in the room” during most concerts, so Carlton generally opens with it so the audience can get settled and focus afterward on the other music.

The full interview is available at the Alexandria Times website.
