About Suzanne Vega

Suzanne Vega was the first major figure in the bumper crop of female singer/songwriters rising to prominence during the late '80s and '90s. Her hushed, restrained folk-pop and highly literate lyrics laid the initial musical groundwork for what later became the trademark sound of Lilith Fair (a tour on which she was a regular). Moreover, her left-field hit single "Luka" helped convince record companies that folk-styled singer/songwriters were not a thing of the past after all, paving the way for breakthroughs by Tracy Chapman, Michelle Shocked, Shawn Colvin, Edie Brickell, the Indigo Girls, Sinéad O'Connor, and a host of others on through the '90s. ~ Steve Huey
