Suzanne Vega Biography :
In school, Vega studied modern dance and then English at Barnard University, and began performing as a songwriter while still in college. In 1984, she got a record deal and soon released her critically acclaimed, self-titled debut album.
It was her second album, Solitude Standing, however, that garnered Vega considerable success, as it contained the hit single "Luka" and it's follow-up "Tom's Diner." After this album, she began releasing more experimental albums, including the stand-out 99.9 Fahrenheit Degrees. She returned to the studio in the autumn of 2007, after signing with Blue Note Records, to work on a new album due sometime in 2007.
In all, Vega has recorded seven albums. She is a long-time member of Amnesty International, and has participated in fundraisers for the Save Darfur Coalition.
