Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s, and since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut album, she has given sold-out concerts in many of the world’s best-known venues. Known for performances that convey deep emotion, Vega’s distinctive, “clear, unwavering voice” (Rolling Stone) has been described as “a cool, dry sandpaper-brushed near-whisper” by The Washington Post, with NPR Music noting that she “has been making vital, inventive music” throughout the course of her decades-long career.
Due for release on September 11, 2020 Suzanne Vega’s latest offering, An Evening of New York Songs and Stories includes songs that were inspired by New York City or for which New York provided the backdrop. Recorded in early 2019, it includes familiar songs like “Luka” and “Tom’s Diner” and deep cuts from Vega’s catalog including “Frank and Ava” and “Ludlow Street.”
