Carole King an "Inspiration" to Vanessa Carlton in This Month's Music Issue of InStyle Magazine

NEW YORK, NY - The July music issue of InStyle Magazine includes a full-page photo of Grammy-nominee Vanessa Carlton with her muse, Carole King. Check out the feature, "You're the Inspiration," and see who has influenced some of today's hottest young musical talent: Norah Jones, Michelle Branch, Kelly Rowland, Allison Krause, and Shirley Manson. King says. "Meeting Vanessa Carlton was an uplifting experience for me. It's encouraging to see a young woman as beautiful, talented and disciplined as Vanessa experiencing success and staying focused on the work, rather than the success. If Vanessa is an example of the current generation of singer/songwriters, I say, bring 'em on!"
