Suzanne Vega Live from World Cafe Live 1/17 @ Noon

Suzanne Vega

Long-running singer-songwriter and Different Radio favorite Suzanne Vega is this week's concert artist. 

Vega's discography spans nearly 30 years, from her mid-80s beginnings to her breakout 1987 release Solitude Standing – which gave us the song "Tom's Diner" and its ubiquitous dance remix by DNA. Vega's output has been steady since then; and is set to release her latest record, Tales from the Realm of the Queens of Pentacles, on February 18th via her own Amanuensis Productions label.
