Vanessa Carlton Talks Relationship With Third Eye Blind's Jenkins

Vanessa Carlton’s emergence this year with her debut album, Be Not Nobody, has had its side-effects beyond fame and million-selling status-now the general public has taken an interest in her personal life. Of note recently has been Carlton’s romantic relationship with Third Eye Blind frontman Stephan Jenkins. Carlton said that it’s a part of the profession that is taking some getting used to. “It’s so strange, suddenly you’re in the public eye and I’m such a private person. I mean, I wouldn’t tell a stranger who I’m dating and I wouldn’t talk to them about my love life. But, yeah,… Read more »


Carlton Strikes a Balance with Sophomore Set

Los Angeles – Vanessa Carlton is realistic. She knows today’s musical environment is not always friendly toward pop-oriented artists who play their instruments and write their songs, as she does. In fact, Carlton says she is gladly straddling the fence between “being true to myself as a musician and being embraced commercially” with her sophomore album, “Harmonium,” due Nov. 9 from A&M/Interscope Records. “It’s nice to be back and be the alternative to the more calculated, poppy acts out there,” the 24-year-old artist says. “I feel lucky that I’m able to appeal to real music lovers, and it also somehow… Read more »

Charlotte Sands Stands In The “blindspot” With Her Latest Single

Charlotte Sands is never in our “blindspot,” especially not with her latest single. The 2000s-inspired, singer-songwriter alt-ballad is the latest track to preview her upcoming album can we start over?, which arrives on January 24. From there, Sands will embark on her world headline tour in March. Her previous single, “pity” is more aggressive, pointed, and rock-leaning, so this pivot to something slowed down, with longing sadness stirred into it, gives listeners a look at her versatility as an artist. Sands says that the song is about having feelings for a friend but not being in a relationship with them.… Read more »

Eminem Shreds The Competition

For the third time in his career, Eminem has a new album debuting atop the Billboard albums chart. Encore, the rapper’s fourth full-length LP, will bow at #1 on next week’s chart with more than 710,000 copies sold, according to SoundScan. What’s more impressive is that Shady pulled off the feat with less than a full first-week’s worth of sales. Because the album leaked online, Encore went on sale Friday, four days before the previously scheduled release of Tuesday. Since SoundScan ends each week’s tally on Sundays at midnight, Em’s 710,000 copies, which is also the year’s fourth-largest first-week total,… Read more »
