Description

With her sultry voice, Suzanne Vega seamlessly joins her poetry and contemporary folk song with a sound that is utterly unique and identifiable to her alone. A pioneer among singer-songwriters, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s. Her international hit songs “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner” have now both entered the cultural vernacular. In performances devoid of outward drama that nevertheless convey deep emotion, Vega sings in a distinctive, clear vibrato-less voice described by The New York Times as conveying an “inviolable purity of heart tinged with mystery and a faraway melancholy.”
