Carlton released her first live album in October, Liberman Live. As the title suggests, the project features live versions of tracks from her 2015 LP, Liberman.
A review from music blog Hidden Jams declares, “Liberman Live is a beautiful showcase of Vanessa’s siren-like voice and soft, earthy melodies. The intimacy of her small performance can be heard through the speakers, as if you were there with her.”
To really experience Carlton live, you’ll want to catch her on tour.
The new leg of dates will bring her to Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas. An announcement on her website promises that a third batch of shows will be added soon.
