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

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

Suzanne Vega

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.

Vega says the new record tells stories "about the material world, the spirit world, and how they intersect." The album was produced by Gerry Leonard, David Bowie's longtime musical director, and features songs inspired by the Rolling Stones as well as a track that samples 50 Cent's "Candy Shop."
