Careful Confessions is the 2004 independently produced debut studio album by Sara Bareilles.[1][2] In addition to seven studio tracks, the album features four songs recorded during live performances. Several of the songs on the album were re-recorded to appear on Bareilles' second album, Little Voice, her major label debut.[3][4]

The album was recorded and mixed at Asylum Recording Studios in Culver City, California, over roughly a one-month period in 2003. Bareilles produced alongside college friend Gabriel Mann, prolific singer/songwriter, music producer, television and video game music composer, and member of Los Angeles alternative rock band The Rescues. Mann had produced two albums for Awaken, the college a cappella group Bareilles sang in while attending UCLA.[5]
